There have been many changes in the UKs interest in coffee in the last 10 - 15 years. The need for real espresso based coffees has increased dramatically. Instant coffee out a tin or at best "Pour and Serve" filter coffee machines were the main way of providing coffee during the past thirty years. I can speak from past experiences when selling coffee machines that prepare "real bean" espresso based coffees to businesses in the food and drink sector. These days those types of business wouldnt consider anything less than a traditional Espresso machine or Bean to Cup machine. Back then the British public was really only used to "instant" type coffee and Espresso was something foreign. Businesses didnt see the need to go "foreign."
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
In this situation Bulk Brew coffee machines are highly recommended. These machines can produce between 30 and 140 Litres of fresh filter coffee per hour. There are a number of popular brands for Pour and Serve and Bulk Brew coffee machines. Pour and Serve coffee machines range from a simple two Jug filter coffee machine with two hot plates or multiple hot plate Pour and Serve for up to four Jugs. The ultimate is a Bulk Brew coffee machine. These have one or two brewing columns. They have detachable brewing containers capable of holding up to 40 Litres of coffee. The convenient control panels with LCD display makes it easy to adjust brewing times and volume requirements. The detachable brewing containers mean that high volumes of coffee can be served in different locations simultaneously. The other type of "filter" coffee machine is the RLX type from Bravilor. They are modular fresh filter machines with added hot water and steam facilities ideal for producing hot water for teas as well as a steam for foaming and steaming milk.
Not all of us had been blessed with a large kitchen space. You might also want to consider the size and the weight of the machine you want to purchase. Its where you can put in and out of the cupboard with ease if you want to store it. Or a heavier sturdier machine can suffice if you want to display and boast it on your kitchen top. If you like to entertain other people in your house you may in addition consider the tank size of your machine also the frequency of use of your coffee machine.
