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.
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.
The software in a Bean to Cup machine allows for various types of drinks to be produced. These vary depending on the type of machine chosen. Generally commercial Bean to Cup machines have between 8 and 12 drink selections. Basic and domestic bean to cup machines have a separate steam arm or foamer which means that milk for Cappuccinos and Lattes have to be foamed separately. These machines are ideal for domestic use or small offices were less than twenty drinks are required in any one day. Please be aware that if using a machine in a business environment it should have a commercial warranty.
Bean to cup coffee machines are relatively recent additions to the coffee machine market. The principle is to be able to duplicate more or less the range of espresso based coffees that are normally handmade on an espresso machine. All at the "Touch of a Button". As previously explained when using an espresso machine a Barista would make coffees by hand. Although not a long process it doesnt allow the Barista to prepare other food orders for example. In fast food outlets where staff do not have time to hand make a coffee or where there is limited staff training a bean to cup machine is the ideal solution. Bean to Cup machines are found in many self-serve environments such as Cafeterias Company Canteens. Bean to Cup machines are becoming popular in Offices.
