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.
In 1938, Milan coffee bartender, Achille Gaggia filed a Patent for a steam-free coffee machine. Unlike its predecessors, Gaggias design used a revolutionary piston mechanism which forced water through the coffee grounds at high pressure. It was his quest for the perfect espresso in 1930s Milan that gave birth to one of Italys most iconic brands, and heralded the production of the Espresso as we know it. Traditional Espresso Coffee Machines are the type you see in Café Nero, Costa Coffee etc.
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.
Costs are important too. Often the more sophisticated machines are large and costly. So, finally, it is based on your budgetary constraints and space availability considerations that you will be choosing an espresso coffee machine from the variety on offer. Esteemed automatic espresso coffee machines of the day include Delonghi espresso machines and La Pavoni espresso machines. The Delonghi espresso machines are acclaimed for their quality construction and attractive styling. These produce delicious authentic espresso, cappuccino and latte beverages. A wide range of Delonghi coffee makers are on offer including affordable yet functional models and super automatic models going from bean to cup at the touch of a button.
