Bean to cup machines explained

With so many coffee machine options on the market from traditional espresso, pods, bean to cup and so on, it’s hard to know which one to choose. We take a look at the many pros of bean to cup coffee machines and why they’re a great option for your busy office.

Bean to cup simply describes the coffee-making process from how the coffee is ground, pressed and brewed fresh – all at the touch of a button. Bean to cup machines have internal grinders so they grind the beans and then hot water is forced through the ground coffee at high pressure resulting in a perfect cup of coffee. We like to think of a bean to cup machine as a bit like a coffee machine and barista all in one.

Easy to use and maintain

They’re a good choice for offices because they’re so easy to use and maintain. Once installed and connected to a mains water supply, all you need to do is feed it coffee beans and milk to keep it going! Simply fill up your machine with premium quality coffee beans and either fresh or granulated milk and you’re good to go. They don’t need much maintenance. They do need to be regularly cleaned but most of the cleaning process is automated so it doesn’t take long out of your busy day.


Another great thing about bean to cup machines is that they make deliciously fresh-tasting coffee. When coffee beans are ground, they actually start to lose their rich flavour almost immediately. Bean to cup machines grind exactly the right amount in seconds so it’s always fresh. They also give you flexibility allowing you to choose your bean type, strength, coarseness of your grind, water temperature and so on, for complete control over the taste of coffee.
