Firstly the coffee is heated for a short duration and thus healthier. The taste of the coffee produced by this machine also beats that of others. Vacuum coffee makers are also gaining a lot of popularity these days. This machine is made with two glass compartments present one above the other. An important precaution to take while buying this type of machine is to check the glass type. The glass used in this machine should be durable so that it can be used for years without any problem. Both vacuum coffee makers and French press are manual machines. If you are looking for an option which requires no manual work drip coffee machines are the best choice. Drip machines require the user to add coffee grounds and thereafter it performs brewing on its own. Different variations of the machine are available in the market and these days the drip coffee makers with integrated grinders are more popular. It is obvious that the coffee produced by fresh grounded beans is more appealing and refreshing.
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.
After the initial purchase of a single serve coffee machine which ranges in price from $85 to $190 the cost per cup of coffee is much less than that of a cup of coffee from a gourmet coffeehouse. The average cost per cup of coffee is anywhere from $0.65 to $1.25 with a Keurig coffee machine. Compare this to upwards of $5.00 per cup at a coffeehouse. You will save a lot of money with the single serve coffee brewer.
Also with the pod technology there is no guessing or measuring of coffee for this type of maker. The pods of coffee are premeasured and all you have to do is place the pod in the machine and select the size cup you would like to have. The clean up is very easy as well. You just open the arm on the machine and discard the pod when the machine has finished its cycle. Another advantage of a single serve maker is the fact that the coffee is fresh every time. How many times have you gone back to the coffee pot to refill your cup and the coffee tastes stale or burnt? This happened all the time at my home. There were many days that I would feel guilty if I just had one cup then threw the rest down the drain because it tasted bad. Since you only brew coffee one cup at a time with this type of machine there is no more wasting coffee.
