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."
The first requirement that you must take into account when you decide to go in for a coffee machine is whether the machine must be large scale or small scale. Now this choice depends on the kind of set up that you have in mind. Suppose you decide to go in for a book stall or a gaming plaza then a small scale machine with a capacity for one cup of coffee at a time would be enough. But in case you have an idea of running a coffee shop with exclusive coffee options then it would be wise to invest in a large scale coffee machine that would have the capacity of about four to five cups at a time.
Also with the pod technology there is no guessing or measuring of coffee for this type of maker. The pods of coffee are premeasured and all you have to do is place the pod in the machine and select the size cup you would like to have. The clean up is very easy as well. You just open the arm on the machine and discard the pod when the machine has finished its cycle. Another advantage of a single serve maker is the fact that the coffee is fresh every time. How many times have you gone back to the coffee pot to refill your cup and the coffee tastes stale or burnt? This happened all the time at my home. There were many days that I would feel guilty if I just had one cup then threw the rest down the drain because it tasted bad. Since you only brew coffee one cup at a time with this type of machine there is no more wasting coffee.
The systems can be customized on our own to produce various kinds of coffee through detailed programs or the simpler way is to opt for a larger scale coffee machine that would ensure pre set types of coffee issuing forth from various taps that can be switched on and off. If the measurements are also standardized then similar proportions of coffee can be handed out to customers on turning the machine on. Sometimes there are icings toppings ice creams and jellies that are used to create a fusion combination to give the coffee an extra edge. All this can also be pre set into the machine and can be obtained in standard specified amounts when switched on.
