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.
A large portion of the productivity of modern society is fueled by caffeine from coffee. If you look at offices and work places around the world you will find coffee readily available. Many people require coffee to get themselves in a productive state of mind. In order to have an effective office it is important to find the right coffee machine. Office coffee machines can come in various configurations, so being educated is important. By looking at the needs of your office and matching it to a type of coffee maker, you can make an informed and effective purchase.
There have been many changes in the UKs interest in coffee in the last 10 - 15 years. The need for real espresso based coffees has increased dramatically. Instant coffee out a tin, or at best "Pour and Serve" filter coffee machines were the main way of providing coffee during the past thirty years. I can speak from past experiences when selling coffee machines that prepare "real bean" espresso based coffees to businesses in the food and drink sector. These days those types of business wouldnt consider anything less than a traditional Espresso machine or Bean to Cup machine. Back then, the British public was really only used to "instant" type coffee and Espresso was something foreign. Businesses didnt see the need to go "foreign."
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.
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.
