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.
This generally will not be available for low volume domestic machines. If you are considering a Bean to Cup machine for your business it should be noted that they are manufactured to different volume categories. Machines have to be matched to daily cups/day requirements/estimates drink size and how quickly they will be needed. All Manufacturers cups/day specifications are based upon an 8oz serving with numbers spread evenly throughout the day. Typically low volume bean to cup can produce up to 50 coffees per day. Medium volume machines range between 100 and 150 a day. Medium to High volume would be 150 - 200 a day.
The last types of machine to consider if offering a "real" coffee are the ones that have been familiar for many years. Filter type coffee made with Pre ground coffee. The type of machines depends upon volumes required. For example high volumes of coffee may be required for breakfast coffees in Hotels. Conference Centres would require high volumes for seminar coffee breaks. Also Function facilities Staff canteens and Theatres where a high demand for fresh coffee is required in a short space of time.
The traditional scenario for needing to find an office coffee machine is the obvious one of working in an office full of co-workers. In this type of situation a one cup at a time machine could still work but might not be optimal. If a high percentage of the people in the office are drinking coffee it would be smart to invest in a maker with a large carafe. By brewing more coffee at a time you improve the efficiency of the process. Some machines also feature hot water dispensers for hot water on demand. This is a great feature as it allows people in the office who enjoy hot tea or instant soup to get hot water when they need it without disrupting the production of coffee.
