If you work in a small office, a machine with a small carafe is sufficient. However, you work in a very large office, a machine that can fill a large coffee urn might be what is needed. Another feature that would be useful in this type of environment is a machine with a "time to clean" indicator coupled with a self clean feature. Often, calcium buildup can occur in these machines and an indicator of when the machine needs to be cleaned is important. In a shared environment, it is very likely that responsibilities like cleaning the coffee machine can be ignored due to the phenomenon known as the tragedy of the commons. By having a machine with simplified cleaning measures like an auto-clean, you can avoid the pitfall of nobody taking responsibility to clean.
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.
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.
Another advantage of this type of brewer is that everyone can brew the kind of coffee that they like. If someone in the house is a bold coffee drinker and another likes a milder type, they are not stuck drinking something that wasnt their choice. I have family gatherings at my home regularly, and coffee after dinner is commonplace. Everyone is very pleased with the fact that they can choose whatever they would like for their coffee.
