How to Select the Best Commercial Coffee Machines for Your Office
Office coffee services are growing in popularity as more employers are offering the free “perk” of coffee in office break rooms. If your office is adding this service or upgrading to commercial equipment, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before you start shopping for commercial coffee machines.
To make sure you’re on the right track, keep these questions in mind to choose the best coffee equipment to meet the needs of your office.
What Is the Purpose of the Commercial Coffee Machines?
This may seem like a simple question – to serve coffee to employees of course! But allow yourself to dive a little deeper. How many employees are you serving on a daily basis? Are you interested in serving black coffee, single serve coffee options, or espresso and lattes with full-service espresso machines? By answering this first important question, you’ll know which type and style of machine you need.
Where Will They Be Located in Your Break Room?
Just as the purpose is important, so is the location of your coffee machines. The design and size of the location will determine if they will fit or not. If you’re designing a new office break room, it’s important to consult with your architect to plan for proper counter space, cabinet height, floor drainage, and plumbing for filtered water service.
If your break room is already established, counter height and amenities should be considered before taking the plunge and purchasing equipment. Equipment may be available to fit under existing counters so you don’t have to go through the expense of modifying your space. It’s best to consult with your office coffee service team to measure the location and help you decide which equipment will fit in your space.
Are the Commercial Coffee Machines Made with Quality Parts?
You’ve probably heard, “You get what you pay for.” This statement rings true with commercial coffee machines. Coffee equipment for your office is an investment that you want to last a long time. These machines should be made with quality parts to handle consistent daily use so you can get the most out of your money.
