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.
Apart from all these structural and quality considerations it is also worthwhile to consider the kind of coffee that you might want to serve. There are more than thousand varieties of coffee available right from the Café Mocha to the South Indian Filter Coffee; coffee with milk and without milk; coffee with sugar and without sugar; coffee with chocolate toppings or with a vanilla sundae on it. The possibilities are endless and so are the machines. There are different machines that are used to create various types of coffee and thus as the methods of creating the coffee vary the internal design and the make of the system also varies.
In this situation Bulk Brew coffee machines are highly recommended. These machines can produce between 30 and 140 Litres of fresh filter coffee per hour. There are a number of popular brands for Pour and Serve and Bulk Brew coffee machines. Pour and Serve coffee machines range from a simple two Jug filter coffee machine with two hot plates or multiple hot plate Pour and Serve for up to four Jugs. The ultimate is a Bulk Brew coffee machine. These have one or two brewing columns. They have detachable brewing containers capable of holding up to 40 Litres of coffee. The convenient control panels with LCD display makes it easy to adjust brewing times and volume requirements. The detachable brewing containers mean that high volumes of coffee can be served in different locations simultaneously. The other type of "filter" coffee machine is the RLX type from Bravilor. They are modular fresh filter machines with added hot water and steam facilities ideal for producing hot water for teas as well as a steam for foaming and steaming milk.
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.
