Also, with the pod technology, there is no guessing or measuring of coffee for this type of maker. The pods of coffee are premeasured and all you have to do is place the pod in the machine and select the size cup you would like to have. The clean up is very easy as well. You just open the arm on the machine and discard the pod when the machine has finished its cycle. Another advantage of a single serve maker is the fact that the coffee is fresh every time. How many times have you gone back to the coffee pot to refill your cup and the coffee tastes stale or burnt? This happened all the time at my home. There were many days that I would feel guilty if I just had one cup then threw the rest down the drain because it tasted bad. Since you only brew coffee one cup at a time with this type of machine, there is no more wasting coffee.
Next is what we call the coffee experience. Have enough time and feeling an expert barista? Brewing coffee beans on some machines can actually let you control the strength and taste of your coffee. Some even are so easy they are fully automatic. Pods have already flavors and you just have to pop them on some coffee machines, some actually have crema if your machine has a frother. Its just a matter of how hands on you want to be on brewing your cup.
The traditional scenario for needing to find an office coffee machine is the obvious one of working in an office full of co-workers. In this type of situation, a one cup at a time machine could still work, but might not be optimal. If a high percentage of the people in the office are drinking coffee, it would be smart to invest in a maker with a large carafe. By brewing more coffee at a time, you improve the efficiency of the process. Some machines also feature hot water dispensers for hot water on demand. This is a great feature as it allows people in the office who enjoy hot tea or instant soup to get hot water when they need it without disrupting the production of coffee.
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.
