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.
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."
One of the popular coffee machines used today is a pod machine or pod brewer. These machines use pods or K-Cups which already have the grounds in a container. The machine creates very hot water or steam. When the pod or K-Cup is inserted into the machine it creates a hole for the pressurized water or steam to go through. Some espresso machines which were just mentioned above also have the ability to use pods or K-Cups.
