Features to Consider

Our friendly team can help you choose the perfect coffee machine for your workplace. Some of the factors you might want to consider are listed below. Alternatively feel free to get in touch if you’d like our help or a free quote.

Capacity and Size

When choosing a workplace coffee machine, the first thing to consider is the machine’s capacity and size. Think about the number of employees in your office and their coffee consumption habits. A larger coffee machine may be necessary for a bigger office or an office with heavy coffee drinkers. Remember to also consider the available space in your workplace kitchen or break room when deciding on the size of the machine.

Customisable Settings

A good office coffee machine should offer customisable settings to accommodate various preferences. This includes options for different coffee strengths, brew sizes, and temperature controls. By catering to the diverse tastes of your employees, a machine with customisable settings will improve overall satisfaction and productivity.

LED Display and Programmability

An easy-to-use LED display is essential for a user-friendly office coffee machine experience. Combined with programmable features, this allows users to set their desired coffee preferences and create a personalised experience. Media screens also offer a superior user experience and, for larger machines, can be used to display adverts or company media. Programmable coffee makers often have additional features such as a remembering user preferences and having programmable operating times.

Automatic Shut-Off and Energy Efficiency

In a busy office environment, it’s essential to have an energy-efficient coffee machine with an automatic shut-off feature. This ensures that the machine turns off after a specific duration of inactivity, preventing wasted energy and potential safety hazards. Look for machines with energy-saving modes, which consume less power during standby periods.

Water Filtration and Temperature Control

A high-quality coffee machine should have an integrated water filtration system to ensure a better taste and reduce the buildup of minerals within the machine. Additionally, temperature control allows for optimal brewing conditions, providing consistently delicious coffee for your employees. By considering these features, you can select a machine that offers the best coffee experience for your workplace.

Benefits of a Workplace Coffee Machine

Our friendly team can help you choose the perfect coffee machine for your workplace. Below we discuss some of the benefits of a good quality coffee machine in a work environment. If you’d like our help choosing the perfect machine, or would like a free quote, then please get in touch.

Improved Employee Satisfaction

We’ve found that providing a coffee machine in the workplace leads to a significant improvement in employee satisfaction. A fresh cup of coffee or tea can help reduce stress, boost mood and recharge their batteries. Moreover, the availability of a hot drink during break times allows employees to feel valued and better catered for in the workplace. The social aspect of sharing a morning coffee with colleagues is also important, as it fosters a positive working environment and increases team bonding.

Increased Productivity and Break-Time Efficiency

A coffee machine at the office can contribute to increased productivity among our workers. Caffeine acts as a natural stimulant, helping employees stay alert and focused throughout the day. Additionally, taking short breaks for a cup of coffee can lead to better concentration and performance, thanks to the brief mental rest and a replenishing caffeine boost. Plus, having a coffee machine on site saves valuable work time, as employees no longer have to venture out to find a nearby coffee shop for their caffeine fix.

Cost Savings and Convenience

Investing in a workplace coffee machine can lead to cost savings and convenience benefits. Firstly, providing coffee in the office is often more cost-effective than employees purchasing their own from external vendors. Secondly, convenience is significantly improved, as employees can access their desired hot beverage at any moment of the day, without having to queue at a busy coffee shop, or leave the building. Moreover, low-maintenance coffee machines can be easily stocked with K-cups or coffee pods, ensuring a variety of options for staff to choose from. Similarly bean-top-cup machines offer a variety of drink choices. Our fully managed options can keep your machine stocked and ready to go 24/7.


Cost Savings: Reduced expenses for both the business and employees
Convenience: Hassle-free access to hot drinks, without needing to leave the workplace
Variety: A range of options available through multi-option coffee machines, catering to different tastes and preferences

Overall, the presence of a coffee machine in the workplace offers numerous benefits, from increased employee satisfaction and motivation to better productivity, cost savings, and convenience. By investing in a quality coffee machine, we’re creating a positive work atmosphere that supports our employees and contributes to the overall success of our organisation.

Choosing the Best Coffee Machine for Specific Work Environments

Given the incredible range of machines available, along with numerous options, choosing your ideal machine can seem daunting. Below are some of our recommendations based on your type of workplace.

Alternatively, why not get in touch and our expert team can recommend the perfect machine for you.

Small Offices

For smaller offices, space and budget are often primary concerns. Bean-to-cup machines fit the bill, as they are compact, versatile, and efficient, providing high-quality beverages. The Franke A300, Coffetek Vitro X1 and Jura E6 are popular choices, offering a balance between quality and affordability.

Large Corporations

In large corporations, the demand for coffee is often higher, and the machine needs to be able to keep up. Top-end recommendations for this setting are the Franke SB1200, Coffetek Vitro X4 or the Coffetek Zensia (for particularly large offices). All of these machines are durable, fast, and capable of handling the volume required in large corporate environments. While these machines can be more expensive, their performance justifies the investment.

Co-Working Spaces

Co-working spaces need coffee machines that can handle a variety of preferences and work seamlessly throughout the day. A machine with multiple drink options, such as lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos, is essential. To accommodate different tastes and dietary requirements, consider a coffee machine with options for alternative milks and adjustable strength settings. It is highly likely that these machines will require a payment option to recuperate costs or help drive a profit. For larger co-working spaces you may want to consider the Coffetek Neo Plus, Coffetek Zensia or Crane Icon. If you require a smaller machine with payment options, then please get in touch so we can help you choose the perfect coffee machine.

Cafes and Restaurants

In cafes and restaurants, the quality and consistency of coffee served are crucial to customer satisfaction. A high-quality commercial coffee machine featuring two group heads can be an excellent choice. Given the range of available machines, we strongly recommend you get in touch so we can help you find the perfect coffee machine for your business.

Although there are many factors to consider, we hope our recommendations help guide you in finding the best office coffee machine for your specific work environment.

Additional Options for Coffee Machines

Fresh Milk

We believe that quality matters when it comes to coffee, and fresh milk can make all the difference. Adding fresh milk to your coffee offerings elevates the overall taste and provides a smoother texture. Many premium coffee machines now come with built-in milk systems, so employees can enjoy espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos with ease. Additionally, fresh milk not only enhances the flavour of coffee but also adds a personalised touch to the beverage.

Payment Systems

To streamline the coffee drinking experience at work, we suggest integrating payment systems into your office coffee machine. This will allow employees to make contactless payments for their cups of coffee using their smartphones or cards. Payment systems not only add convenience but also help businesses keep track of their coffee consumption and expenses. This are also essential for hospitality and public businesses who want to offer drink options to visitors, without taking on the expense.

Adjustable Milk Frothers

A perfect cup of coffee is subjective – and milk froth preferences can vary greatly. By offering adjustable milk frothers in your workplace, employees can truly personalise their hot drinks. These systems empower coffee lovers to choose the level of frothiness they desire in their cappuccinos, lattes, and more.

Flavour Syrups

There’s always room for a little excitement when it comes to coffee. Adding an assortment of flavour syrups to your office coffee setup allows employees to get creative and customise their drinks. Offer popular flavours such as vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut to cater to various taste buds. This simple addition can make a big difference in employee satisfaction and help encourage the consumption of quality in-house beverages.

Fully Managed Options

For those looking to completely outsource their office coffee solutions, managed services can be a great choice. This means that our team takes care of everything – from maintaining and restocking premium coffee beans, sugar, and milk to ensuring the machines are regularly serviced. Managed services provide a hassle-free experience for both the employers and employees, resulting in a more productive and enjoyable work environment.
