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.
Let us start with single cup coffee makers that are ideal for college students or single people. As evident by the name, these coffee makers deliver single cup of coffee. Again, there are thermal coffee makers as well that provide delicious fresh and hot coffee. These coffee makers are also available in a number of colors and sizes. Another popular type is the French press that produces quite strong coffee. This device is also known by other names like press pot and coffee press. The coffee produced by this machine is superior in a number of aspects.
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.
While selecting the best machine, adequate importance must be given to the durability and life time of the machine. The lifetime of any coffee brewing machine depends upon the life of the heating filament that forms an integral part of any coffee machine. The heating filament is prone to wear and tear, manufacturing defects and other malfunctions that may, at times result in grave problems like shocks and short circuits causing destruction of the apparatus. Thus, it is very essential to undergo a prior check up and detailed analysis of the heating filament and proper examination of its warranty before zeroing in on the product.
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.
