What is a Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine?

Most bean-to-cup coffee machines are automatic; grinding the beans seconds before your java is brewed.  Once you have added beans to the machine, all you have to do is push a button and the machine will grind, dispense and tamp the correct amount.  After the beans have been ground, water is pumped from a water reservoir through a thermoblock, where it is quickly heated and then forced through the grounds.  The coffee oils are emulsified by the pressurized brew water into a golden foam otherwise known as crema.  The crema crowns the espresso with the perfect flavor and aroma.

 

These machines guarantee you the freshest, fullest flavor because the beans are freshly ground.  Besides being able to grind your beans right before you brew your beverage, there is very little mess to clean up.  Most of these units come with a milk frother, giving you the choice of making an extra special cup of java.

On the downside, these units are noisier than the traditional machines and they are usually more expensive.  Another drawback is that it takes awhile to make the beverage.  This is due to the amount of time it takes to grind and extract the beans.  To get the most flavor out of the bean, the process takes about 25 seconds.  Thirty five to fifty seconds is the average serving time for a cup of joe.  Another disadvantage is that the bean hopper and grinder must be kept clean; so therefore, they require a little bit more cleaning than traditional coffee makers require.

Why Buy A Bean-to-Cup Coffee Maker?

Coffee grounds start to lose their flavor immediately after they are ground, so the sooner you use the ground beans the better your drink will taste.  Since the beans are ground seconds before they are used, your cup of brew will be fresh and will taste great!  A magnificent tasting connoisseur beverage can be prepared with many of these machines!

Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine

These units let you make beverages like the coffee houses make and you can make your beverage in minutes, at the press of a button.  It’s easy and the built in grinder means you don’t have to grind the coffee beans yourself.  The machine does it all for you.

The initial cost of one of these units will usually be more than a traditional coffee maker but if you are one of those that goes to Starbucks down the street on a regular basis, the initial cost will be well worth it in the long run.  A hot beverage from Starbucks will probably cost you anywhere from $3.00 up and a cup of java from your bean-to-cup coffee machine will cost you around $.40 per cup.  When you think of how much you will be spending at the coffee house compared to how much you will spend using your machine, the number of dollars you will save will more than compensate for the initial cost of the machine.

These machines are perfect for both home and office use.  Who doesn’t want to wake up to the awesome smell of fresh brewed java every morning?  All it takes is the push of a button and you have a great tasting cup of brew.  It’s a guarantee that your cup of joe will be delicious every time with one of these machines.
