The first requirement that you must take into account when you decide to go in for a coffee machine is whether the machine must be large scale or small scale. Now, this choice depends on the kind of set up that you have in mind. Suppose you decide to go in for a book stall or a gaming plaza, then a small scale machine with a capacity for one cup of coffee at a time would be enough. But, in case, you have an idea of running a coffee shop with exclusive coffee options then it would be wise to invest in a large scale coffee machine that would have the capacity of about four to five cups at a time.
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.
This generally will not be available for low volume domestic machines. If you are considering a Bean to Cup machine for your business it should be noted that they are manufactured to different volume categories. Machines have to be matched to daily cups/day requirements/estimates, drink size and how quickly they will be needed. All Manufacturers cups/day specifications are based upon an 8oz serving with numbers spread evenly throughout the day. Typically low volume bean to cup can produce up to 50 coffees per day. Medium volume machines range between 100 and 150 a day. Medium to High volume would be 150 - 200 a day.
Thankfully, all that has changed. With the evolution of the High Street big brands of Coffee Bars. The growth in Café Culture in the UK and the influence of the well known "American" food outlets. The publics perception of Coffee has changed and become more refined. In fact, the UK is now officially a nation of coffee drinkers. To respond to this many independent businesses have moved towards more sophisticated methods of producing coffee to compete in the coffee market. From the traditional Italian style Espresso machine to the more complex Bean to Cup automatic coffee machines, it is possible to produce a wide range of high quality espresso based coffees very simply.
