Bean to cup coffee machines are relatively recent additions to the coffee machine market. The principle is to be able to duplicate, more or less, the range of espresso based coffees that are normally handmade on an espresso machine. All at the "Touch of a Button". As previously explained, when using an espresso machine, a Barista would make coffees by hand. Although not a long process, it doesnt allow the Barista to prepare other food orders for example. In fast food outlets, where staff do not have time to hand make a coffee, or where there is limited staff training a bean to cup machine is the ideal solution. Bean to Cup machines are found in many self-serve environments such as Cafeterias, Company Canteens. Bean to Cup machines are becoming popular in Offices.
Millions of people around the world start their day off with a cup of coffee. Some will brew a cup at home while others may get theirs at a coffeehouse. If you are thinking about purchasing a new coffee maker, you should consider the advantages of the new single serve machines that are available on the market. One advantage of single serve coffee machines, is that they use something called a pod to brew the desired coffee. A pod contains enough coffee to brew one cup of coffee. Because of this, there is not a need to make a whole pot any more.
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.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market, but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines, there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So, you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
