There is a separate Grinder, which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days, the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more. Training is required to ensure quality and consistency.
If you are considering purchasing a new coffee maker for yourself, the single serve coffee makers like the Keurig would be an excellent choice. You will give yourself and others the freedom to pick and choose different kinds of coffee from cup to cup, and you are able to make it fresh every time. Save yourself some time and money and consider a single serve coffee machine for your next coffee maker.
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.
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.
