Commercial Coffee Machines
Business coffee machines are becoming very popular in offices but choosing the right one is not easy. You need to think about whether it is easy to use, the kind of coffee that it will make and of course the price.
The value of the machine will depend on the features that it has. Certain brands of coffee machine will be more expensive than others and the way the machine brews the coffee can also influence the cost.
Type Of Coffee
Coffee machines can brew coffee in a variety of ways from espresso, to filters to the use of capsules and pods. Whichever method you prefer, you should be able to find a machine to suit your budget. Espresso machines seem to the most popular so if you want one of these machines then you will have a great deal of choice.
If you want a machine that will make a cup of coffee quickly and does not require a lot of cleaning, then a filter machine will usually be the best choice. These are also a good choice if you do not have a lot of space because they are usually quite small.
The one disadvantage of a filter machine is that the coffee does not hold the temperature for too long and so you will have to drink the coffee quickly before it goes cold.
When you are looking for an espresso machine then one of the most important aspects to look at is the bar pressure. When machines have a higher bar pressure then they are able to extract the espresso more easily which gives better coffee.
Most espresso machines have a bar pressure of around 15 but some models are available which have a bar pressure of 19. Generally speaking, the higher the bar pressure of the machine the higher the price will be.
Pod And Capsule Machines
These are the easiest types of machine to operate because all you need to do is insert the pod into the machine and it will do everything else. These machines produce espresso drinks and there are models available with a bar pressure of 19.
These types of machines tend to be fairly expensive because of the technology involved and because they are often designed to be very stylish.
A combination machine will have two tanks, one which makes filter coffee and the other that produces an espresso. Both aspects of these machines can be used at the same time. Most models will also have a milk wand and this allows you to make a cup of coffee with frothy milk.
These machines are a good choice if you like to have some variety in terms of the type of coffee that you drink. These machines do not have to be expensive but if you are able to spend a little more money then you can get a machine with better features such as a higher bar pressure and better filter brewing.
Choosing The Right Beans
You will see that there is quite a difference between the price of the cheapest and most expensive machines but in the end, it all comes down to personal preference.
Another important aspect of getting the best coffee from your machine is choosing the right beans. Your machine will keep giving you great coffee if you buy the best beans that you can.
