High volume would be 200 - 500 cups per day. Bean to Cup machines will protest if asked to do more than they were built to do and will appear slow at busy times. There are no major training requirements to use a Bean to Cup machine. No Barista skills are really needed. Some of the more powerful high volume Bean to Cup machines have traditional Steam Wands so some "foaming" skills may be needed. Training is more to do with how to use and look after the machine. Cleaning is especially important when using a Bean to Cup machine. Its a good idea to have some knowledge of coffee beans so you can choose a blend that will to suit your customers tastes.
The following information is intended to give general information on the range of commercial coffee machines that are used in the Coffee Industry today. I apologise in advance if Im Teaching you how to suck eggs. Having been a consultant involved in the Coffee World for some years, advising clients and helping them choose the right equipment to suit their needs. Believe me when I say that there have been many people who have asked the question, "Whats an egg?" Facts are facts so the following is my interpretation and how I advise clients.
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.
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.
Costs are important too. Often the more sophisticated machines are large and costly. So, finally, it is based on your budgetary constraints and space availability considerations that you will be choosing an espresso coffee machine from the variety on offer. Esteemed automatic espresso coffee machines of the day include Delonghi espresso machines and La Pavoni espresso machines. The Delonghi espresso machines are acclaimed for their quality construction and attractive styling. These produce delicious authentic espresso, cappuccino and latte beverages. A wide range of Delonghi coffee makers are on offer including affordable yet functional models and super automatic models going from bean to cup at the touch of a button.
