Firstly, the coffee is heated for a short duration and thus healthier. The taste of the coffee produced by this machine also beats that of others. Vacuum coffee makers are also gaining a lot of popularity these days. This machine is made with two glass compartments present, one above the other. An important precaution to take while buying this type of machine is to check the glass type. The glass used in this machine should be durable so that it can be used for years without any problem. Both vacuum coffee makers and French press are manual machines. If you are looking for an option which requires no manual work, drip coffee machines are the best choice. Drip machines require the user to add coffee grounds and thereafter it performs brewing on its own. Different variations of the machine are available in the market and these days the drip coffee makers with integrated grinders are more popular. It is obvious that the coffee produced by fresh grounded beans is more appealing and refreshing.
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.
High volume would be 200 - 500 cups per day. Bean to Cup machines will protest if asked to do more than they were built to do and will appear slow at busy times. There are no major training requirements to use a Bean to Cup machine. No Barista skills are really needed. Some of the more powerful high volume Bean to Cup machines have traditional Steam Wands so some "foaming" skills may be needed. Training is more to do with how to use and look after the machine. Cleaning is especially important when using a Bean to Cup machine. Its a good idea to have some knowledge of coffee beans so you can choose a blend that will to suit your customers tastes.
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.
