Let us start with single cup coffee makers that are ideal for college students or single people. As evident by the name, these coffee makers deliver single cup of coffee. Again, there are thermal coffee makers as well that provide delicious fresh and hot coffee. These coffee makers are also available in a number of colors and sizes. Another popular type is the French press that produces quite strong coffee. This device is also known by other names like press pot and coffee press. The coffee produced by this machine is superior in a number of aspects.
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.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market, but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines, there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So, you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
Bean to cup coffee machines are relatively recent additions to the coffee machine market. The principle is to be able to duplicate, more or less, the range of espresso based coffees that are normally handmade on an espresso machine. All at the "Touch of a Button". As previously explained, when using an espresso machine, a Barista would make coffees by hand. Although not a long process, it doesnt allow the Barista to prepare other food orders for example. In fast food outlets, where staff do not have time to hand make a coffee, or where there is limited staff training a bean to cup machine is the ideal solution. Bean to Cup machines are found in many self-serve environments such as Cafeterias, Company Canteens. Bean to Cup machines are becoming popular in Offices.
