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.
Other similar coffee machines use a tube in the center to pump the water to the top where it drops back down over the coffee grounds. They are coffee percolators and coffee urns and come in varying sizes. Urns have greater serving sizes that go as high as 60 cups for home use. Another coffee machine makes coffee by putting coffee in the bottom of a cylinder, which is usually glass. A filter the size of the inside of the cylinder is then pressed down to the bottom producing the coffee. These coffee machines have names such as French press, water press, a press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger or cafetière.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market, but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines, there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So, you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
Apart from all these structural and quality considerations, it is also worthwhile to consider the kind of coffee that you might want to serve. There are more than thousand varieties of coffee available right from the Café Mocha to the South Indian Filter Coffee; coffee with milk and without milk; coffee with sugar and without sugar; coffee with chocolate toppings or with a vanilla sundae on it. The possibilities are endless and so are the machines. There are different machines that are used to create various types of coffee and thus, as the methods of creating the coffee vary, the internal design and the make of the system also varies.
