Types of Commercial Coffee Machines and Who Uses Them
The most popular choice of commercial coffee machine for workplaces is an automatic bean to cup coffee machine. A bean to cup commercial coffee machine delivers quality coffee that’s brewed using beans that are freshly ground on demand.
The machines are exceptionally easy to use, versatile, fast-working and easily maintained. They come in a variety of models and sizes, catering for between 30 and 300 beverages per day. They also deliver a wide range of coffee shop favourites, including flat whites, cappuccinos and lattes, with some even offering fresh brew tea and hot chocolate.
Traditional espresso machines are mostly used in cafés or restaurants and are also known as barista coffee machines. They are the machines you see in your local high street coffee shop; and whilst a traditional espresso machine manned by a trained barista will produce the very best cup of coffee, their operation requires a lot of time, technical knowledge, training and often additional equipment.
A traditional espresso machine works by forcing hot water through freshly ground coffee beans using pressure. This creates espresso which is then combined with other ingredients to create lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos and more.
Filter coffee machines are used to bulk brew coffee and are a popular choice for a quick turnaround of black coffee or simple coffee with milk. These machines are often used in cafés, canteens, hotel breakfast buffets and conference venues.
Compact, reliable and easy to operate, a filter coffee machine works by dispersing hot water through coffee grounds using just gravity. Thanks to their simple setup they are often available in manual fill models, where water is added to a tank by hand, meaning they can be operated from almost anywhere.
Instant coffee machines provide coffee quickly and easily and can be filled with a range of different drinks for optimum choice and flexibility. They use soluble ingredients which are combined with boiling water to create delicious hot drinks. They are fantastic value for money, whilst being easy to clean and maintain.
Instant machines are ideal for care homes, hospital waiting rooms, offices and retailers looking to supply quick, delicious coffee.
Commercial Coffee Machine FAQs
How Much Does a Commercial Coffee Machine Cost?
Filter coffee machines are the least expensive, starting from between £100 and £300. Low-capacity office coffee machines generally cost between £1,000 and £2,000 to purchase outright, whilst advanced bean-to-cup machines start from £2,500, ranging up to £15,000 for a top-of-the-range product.
Why Lease a Commercial Coffee Machine?
When it comes to investing in new equipment for your business, you need to make smart, well-informed financial decisions. Rather than committing to the large expense of buying a commercial machine outright, many of our customers choose to lease their machine.
By leasing a commercial coffee machine, you will have access to the equipment you require when you need it, rather than having to wait until you have the budget available. Leasing can also provide a tax break that you wouldn't have otherwise benefitted from if you had purchased a machine. Furthermore, you can upgrade your machine to the latest model when your contract comes to an end!

When you lease a coffee machine from Liquidline, you’ll sign up to a sales agreement, which will set out the terms of the lease. Coffee machine leasing typically lasts for a fixed duration, either 3 or 5 years. At the end of the lease, you can choose to extend it, give the machine back or upgrade to a new state-of-the-art machine.
What Drinks Can You Make with a Commercial Coffee Machine?
Our office coffee machines, and commercial coffee machines offer a wide range of your favourite drink options; including latte, cappuccino, espresso, hot chocolate and more. In addition to this, we have our very own coffee bean brand, Café Bonté, which includes a range of sustainable blends that are Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified.
How Long Does a Commercial Coffee Machine Last?
Depending on the make and model, a professional coffee machine can last for up to 25 years. The lifespan of a coffee machine is also determined by the level of maintenance and care. Much like a car, the more attention you give a commercial coffee machine, the longer it will last. Regular cleaning, boiler inspections and water filter changes all dramatically increase the lifespan of your machine.
How Often Should I Clean My Coffee Machine?
All coffee machines require a quick daily clean, followed by a deep clean once a week. This is especially important in machines that use fresh milk, as this can build up on the components.
Low-capacity coffee machines and filter coffee machines generally require manual cleaning, whilst more advanced instant or bean-to-cup coffee machines will have automatic cleaning programmes built-in.
Traditional espresso machines generally come with an automated cleaning system to clean the inner components of the machine, but the steam wand and portafilter will require cleaning by hand.
