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."
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 systems can be customized on our own to produce various kinds of coffee through detailed programs or the simpler way is to opt for a larger scale coffee machine that would ensure pre set types of coffee issuing forth from various taps that can be switched on and off. If the measurements are also standardized, then similar proportions of coffee can be handed out to customers on turning the machine on. Sometimes, there are icings, toppings, ice creams and jellies that are used to create a fusion combination to give the coffee an extra edge. All this can also be pre set into the machine and can be obtained in standard specified amounts when switched on.
