One of the popular coffee machines used today is a pod machine or pod brewer. These machines use pods or K-Cups which already have the grounds in a container. The machine creates very hot water or steam. When the pod or K-Cup is inserted into the machine it creates a hole for the pressurized water or steam to go through. Some espresso machines which were just mentioned above also have the ability to use pods or K-Cups.
A common coffee machine is the espresso machine. These machines make coffee by using steam that is pumped through tightly packed finely ground coffee beans. The result of this process varies according to how the operator chooses to make it which depends on the options available for their machine. These machines vary from one that simply pumps steam at Bar 15 pressure through a porta filter that holds ground coffee to programmable ones. Programmable machines will grind your coffee make your espresso your way and even dispose the spent grounds and then sends a clean rinse through the machine. Some machines may have other attachments to make cappuccinos and lattes. Some machines similar to espressos use a higher pressure of 19 bars.
Now that you are aware about the different types of machines you need to choose a brand as well. There are different reputed brands in the market and you should go with one having maximum number of reviews. Depending on your budget and requirement you should choose the coffee machine wisely. If you are looking for cheaper deals the coffee machine sale offers can be a good option. Finally used coffee machines can also be purchased in case you have limited budget. However check the product quality and performance before making the purchase.
If you work in a small office a machine with a small carafe is sufficient. However you work in a very large office a machine that can fill a large coffee urn might be what is needed. Another feature that would be useful in this type of environment is a machine with a "time to clean" indicator coupled with a self clean feature. Often calcium buildup can occur in these machines and an indicator of when the machine needs to be cleaned is important. In a shared environment it is very likely that responsibilities like cleaning the coffee machine can be ignored due to the phenomenon known as the tragedy of the commons. By having a machine with simplified cleaning measures like an auto-clean you can avoid the pitfall of nobody taking responsibility to clean.
