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.
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.
There is a separate Grinder, which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days, the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more. Training is required to ensure quality and consistency.
If you are considering purchasing a new coffee maker for yourself, the single serve coffee makers like the Keurig would be an excellent choice. You will give yourself and others the freedom to pick and choose different kinds of coffee from cup to cup, and you are able to make it fresh every time. Save yourself some time and money and consider a single serve coffee machine for your next coffee maker.
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.
