The drip coffee machines are usually electric ones that heat the water and then pump it over the grounds. However, a stove top type is still used. The water is boiled in a tea kettle and poured into a top reservoir with holes in it. A smaller container below holds the coffee grounds, usually with a filter. When the water finishes dripping through to the bottom, the coffee is ready to drink. Both the electric and stove top makers come in many brands and in a wide range of prices. The less expensive ones require a filter, while others may come with a permanent gold-coated coffee filter or other permanent filter.
The software in a Bean to Cup machine allows for various types of drinks to be produced. These vary depending on the type of machine chosen. Generally commercial Bean to Cup machines have between 8 and 12 drink selections. Basic and domestic bean to cup machines have a separate steam arm or foamer which means that milk for Cappuccinos and Lattes have to be foamed separately. These machines are ideal for domestic use or small offices were less than twenty drinks are required in any one day. Please be aware that if using a machine in a business environment it should have a commercial warranty.
One that is not as popular as all the others is the vacuum machine. They come in many shapes and sizes, yet they are more alike than they are different. This system heats the water in the lower chamber creating a water vapor. This increases the pressure in the lower chamber and forces the water upward into the upper chamber that you add just before the water begins to rise. Brew for about 1.5 minutes then remove from heat, the gases in the lower chamber cool and draws the brewed coffee downward via suction caused by a partial vacuum that ensures accurate extraction of oils and caffeine for a cleaner unit without the bitter taste.
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.
