Choosing a coffee machine for your business can be a daunting prospect, if you have little to no experience of the coffee industry. Coffee machines for businesses now come in all different shapes and sizes, thanks to miniaturisation and the introduction of card payments. In this blog post we are going to discuss the types of coffee machines that are available and the pros and cons of each machine, to help you decide what is best for your business.
Coffee Vending Machines
Coffee vending machines fall into the following four categories, from smallest to largest:
Coffee Pod Machines
Coffee pod machines have quickly become a favourite of many households. They have now started to make their way into many smaller offices, usually brought in by a member of staff. They are great as they have a small footprint and offer a high quality single serving of coffee. The price per cup is the highest out of the four coffee machines due to the cost of the pod refills. The majority of coffee companies do not hire these out for this reason.
Table Top Coffee Machines
Also called counter top machines, these coffee vending machines can be placed on top of a table or counter in the workplace. They are a great option for small-medium sized businesses. They have the smallest capacity and are only able to dispense coffee, hot chocolate and hot water.
Floor Standing Coffee Machines
Floor standing coffee machines are bulky, heavy duty units that you have most likely come across in leisure centres, hospitals and train stations up and down the country. They are able to dispense a number of different products such as tea, coffee, hot water, squash and even soup! These units usually have a capacity of around 800 drinks a day. Some of these machines can even be plumbed in. These machines are economical in the long term and have the lowest cost per cup.
In-Cup Coffee Machines
In cup vending machines are one of the simplest, most reliable and low maintenance forms of vending machine on the market. These machines use a vending cup pre-loaded with the precise amount of ingredient, to vend a consistent & high quality drink every time. These machines are commonly found in train stations, hospitals and university’s up and down the country.
