There is a separate Grinder which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino Latte Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more.

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.

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.
