One situation you might find yourself in when buying a office coffee machine is working from home. Working remotely from home or running a home business is becoming more common. The fact is that even in this type of environment a caffeine pick-me-up might still be an absolute necessity. If this is the case you can choose an office coffee machine that only makes a single cup of coffee at a time. By brewing one cup at a time there is an advantage over traditional machines that feature a large carafe. A one cup coffee maker often only takes a minute or two to brew a cup. This lets you get your coffee quicker and you dont have to deal with a large amount of coffee sitting around and growing stale. The freshness of coffee is directly related to its taste so one cup machines have an advantage in this situation. The coffee will always be hot and fresh when you brew it one cup at a time.
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.
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 drip coffee machines are usually electric ones that heat the water and then pump it over the grounds. However a stove top type is still used. The water is boiled in a tea kettle and poured into a top reservoir with holes in it. A smaller container below holds the coffee grounds usually with a filter. When the water finishes dripping through to the bottom the coffee is ready to drink. Both the electric and stove top makers come in many brands and in a wide range of prices. The less expensive ones require a filter while others may come with a permanent gold-coated coffee filter or other permanent filter.
