One of the popular coffee machines used today is a pod machine or pod brewer. These machines use pods or K-Cups, which already have the grounds in a container. The machine creates very hot water or steam. When the pod or K-Cup is inserted into the machine it creates a hole for the pressurized water or steam to go through. Some espresso machines, which were just mentioned above, also have the ability to use pods or K-Cups.
Also, in large scale machines there are options of keeping the water heated for a longer time and the coffee is constantly brewed so that the supply is almost instantaneous when switched on. However, in small scale machines, not much importance is given to the Commercial Coffee Maker heating and efficiency factors. The speed is also not much to talk about and hence, the supply is done a long time after the switch is turned on as the brewing and heating starts again and again for every new cup of coffee. But, all said and done, the lapse in time due to reheating is hardly a minute or two, making the wait a breeze when compared to other machines.
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.
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.
