After the initial purchase of a single serve coffee machine which ranges in price from $85 to $190, the cost per cup of coffee is much less than that of a cup of coffee from a gourmet coffeehouse. The average cost per cup of coffee is anywhere from $0.65 to $1.25 with a Keurig coffee machine. Compare this to upwards of $5.00 per cup at a coffeehouse. You will save a lot of money with the single serve coffee brewer.
Firstly, the coffee is heated for a short duration and thus healthier. The taste of the coffee produced by this machine also beats that of others. Vacuum coffee makers are also gaining a lot of popularity these days. This machine is made with two glass compartments present, one above the other. An important precaution to take while buying this type of machine is to check the glass type. The glass used in this machine should be durable so that it can be used for years without any problem. Both vacuum coffee makers and French press are manual machines. If you are looking for an option which requires no manual work, drip coffee machines are the best choice. Drip machines require the user to add coffee grounds and thereafter it performs brewing on its own. Different variations of the machine are available in the market and these days the drip coffee makers with integrated grinders are more popular. It is obvious that the coffee produced by fresh grounded beans is more appealing and refreshing.
The last types of machine to consider if offering a "real" coffee are the ones that have been familiar for many years. Filter type coffee made with Pre ground coffee. The type of machines depends upon volumes required. For example, high volumes of coffee may be required for breakfast coffees in Hotels. Conference Centres would require high volumes for seminar coffee breaks. Also, Function facilities, Staff canteens and Theatres where a high demand for fresh coffee is required in a short space of time.
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.
Premium brands like Lavazza and Dualit are also available for your indulgence. Brands such as Bosch, Gaggia, De Longhi, Siemens and Kitchenaid carry coffee makers that are budget friendly. Some of these brands are really well regarded in producing the best coffee machines and you are guaranteed that they will last. You also have to consider how easy the machine is to use for your convenience. Especially if you have a very tight schedule, automatic and programmable machines can really help a lot.
