If you work in a small office a machine with a small carafe is sufficient. However you work in a very large office a machine that can fill a large coffee urn might be what is needed. Another feature that would be useful in this type of environment is a machine with a "time to clean" indicator coupled with a self clean feature. Often calcium buildup can occur in these machines and an indicator of when the machine needs to be cleaned is important. In a shared environment it is very likely that responsibilities like cleaning the coffee machine can be ignored due to the phenomenon known as the tragedy of the commons. By having a machine with simplified cleaning measures like an auto-clean you can avoid the pitfall of nobody taking responsibility to clean.
The following information is intended to give general information on the range of commercial coffee machines that are used in the Coffee Industry today. I apologise in advance if Im Teaching you how to suck eggs. Having been a consultant involved in the Coffee World for some years advising clients and helping them choose the right equipment to suit their needs. Believe me when I say that there have been many people who have asked the question "Whats an egg?" Facts are facts so the following is my interpretation and how I advise clients.
Staff want the same standard of coffee that they get from their favourite coffee shop. Also these days many people have domestic Bean to Cup machines in their kitchen. A Bean to Cup machine grinds the coffee beans to make espresso coffee on demand. These systems also have built in automatic milk foamers that are able to produce steam and foamed milk for producing Lattes Cappuccinos and other milk based drinks simultaneously. The process of producing coffee from a Bean to Cup machine differs from a traditional espresso machine. The brewer in a Bean to Cup coffee machine works similarly to a Cafétiere. The coffee beans are ground into a brewing chamber and then a ram forces the hot water through the coffee extracting the espresso coffee. A traditional espresso machine creates pressure that forces water through "group head" to produce the espresso coffee.
