It is a good idea to start a coffee shop business or have a coffee machine as an extra add on in the store that you own or are planning to set up. Having coffee machines allow your customers to quench their thirst and cravings right at your store while searching or browsing for their much needed accessories. Thus having a coffee machine in your business set up can never be a bad idea. But for the idea to materialize it is extremely essential for you to figure out a good coffee machine for yourself. The specifications of the machine must compliment the requirement that you have with respect to the machine. With different varieties of coffee machines available both in large scale and small scale versions it is very essential to make your choice with all the due planning as a calculated choice is definitely much better than an unheralded guess on any given day.
Bean to cup coffee machines are relatively recent additions to the coffee machine market. The principle is to be able to duplicate more or less the range of espresso based coffees that are normally handmade on an espresso machine. All at the "Touch of a Button". As previously explained when using an espresso machine a Barista would make coffees by hand. Although not a long process it doesnt allow the Barista to prepare other food orders for example. In fast food outlets where staff do not have time to hand make a coffee or where there is limited staff training a bean to cup machine is the ideal solution. Bean to Cup machines are found in many self-serve environments such as Cafeterias Company Canteens. Bean to Cup machines are becoming popular in Offices.
High volume would be 200 - 500 cups per day. Bean to Cup machines will protest if asked to do more than they were built to do and will appear slow at busy times. There are no major training requirements to use a Bean to Cup machine. No Barista skills are really needed. Some of the more powerful high volume Bean to Cup machines have traditional Steam Wands so some "foaming" skills may be needed. Training is more to do with how to use and look after the machine. Cleaning is especially important when using a Bean to Cup machine. Its a good idea to have some knowledge of coffee beans so you can choose a blend that will to suit your customers tastes.
If you are considering purchasing a new coffee maker for yourself the single serve coffee makers like the Keurig would be an excellent choice. You will give yourself and others the freedom to pick and choose different kinds of coffee from cup to cup and you are able to make it fresh every time. Save yourself some time and money and consider a single serve coffee machine for your next coffee maker.
