It is a good idea to start a coffee shop business or have a coffee machine as an extra add on in the store that you own or are planning to set up. Having coffee machines allow your customers to quench their thirst and cravings right at your store while searching or browsing for their much needed accessories. Thus, having a coffee machine in your business set up can never be a bad idea. But, for the idea to materialize, it is extremely essential for you to figure out a good coffee machine for yourself. The specifications of the machine must compliment the requirement that you have with respect to the machine. With different varieties of coffee machines available both in large scale and small scale versions, it is very essential to make your choice with all the due planning as a calculated choice is definitely much better than an unheralded guess on any given day.
Staff want the same standard of coffee that they get from their favourite coffee shop. Also these days, many people have domestic Bean to Cup machines in their kitchen. A Bean to Cup machine grinds the coffee beans to make espresso coffee on demand. These systems also have built in automatic milk foamers that are able to produce steam and foamed milk for producing Lattes, Cappuccinos and other milk based drinks simultaneously. The process of producing coffee from a Bean to Cup machine differs from a traditional espresso machine. The brewer in a Bean to Cup coffee machine works similarly to a Cafétiere. The coffee beans are ground into a brewing chamber and then a ram forces the hot water through the coffee, extracting the espresso coffee. A traditional espresso machine creates pressure that forces water through "group head" to produce the espresso coffee.
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.
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.
The first requirement that you must take into account when you decide to go in for a coffee machine is whether the machine must be large scale or small scale. Now, this choice depends on the kind of set up that you have in mind. Suppose you decide to go in for a book stall or a gaming plaza, then a small scale machine with a capacity for one cup of coffee at a time would be enough. But, in case, you have an idea of running a coffee shop with exclusive coffee options then it would be wise to invest in a large scale coffee machine that would have the capacity of about four to five cups at a time.
