Guide to Choosing a Commercial Coffee Machine
The most popular requirement of commercial coffee machines for the office space, big or small, is that it is an Automatic Bean-to-Cup Machine. Automatic Bean-to-Cup Machines deliver a quality cup of coffee, are versatile, fast-working and can cater for up to sixty employees per day, offering up to 300 beverages over six options of coffee, depending on the model of machine.
The goal of a Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine is to make barista style fresh espresso beverages in a quick and convenient way. Bean-to-Cup Machines offer self-service coffee, without the need to be a professionally trained barista.
Every Commercial Coffee Machine features a control panel that allows you to adjust the settings and start/stop the coffee making process with an easy-to-navigate menu and touchscreen functionality. You can have one-touch espresso in the office and adjust the temperature, coffee strength and timing within seconds. Beyond this, many touchscreen coffee machines can be utilised for the purpose of advertising (in B2C environments) or company updates (in office or working environments).
What Different Types of Commercial Coffee Machine are There?
Bean to Cup Coffee Machines
Bean to Cup Coffee Machines can be automatic or semi-automatic and will grind fresh beans for each cup of coffee. As with any coffee machine, a range of drinks options can be found, depending on the needs of your business.
Traditional Espresso Machines
Traditional Espresso Machines are most commonly used in cafés or restaurants and are otherwise known as a Barista or Professional Coffee Machines. These machines require freshly ground coffee beans, used to craft authentic espresso, which is then combined with other ingredients to create lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos and more. We can also supply Commercial Coffee Grinders to assist in the grinding process.

These machines are ideal for care homes, hospital waiting rooms, offices and garden centres looking to supply quick, delicious coffee to customers.

What Key Features Should I Consider When Choosing A Commercial Coffee Machine?
The core elements to consider when choosing a Commercial Coffee Machine for your business are:
- Milk Frothing System – Many Bean-to-Cup Machines come with their own built-in milk frothing systems, ideal for those who are a fan of milky drinks such as cappuccinos and lattes. Perfect for those wanting to have their drink ready made, rather than having to be professionally trained to use a steam wand on a Traditional Espresso Machine.
- Milk Pods – These are found with capsule or pod machines, which are dispensed directly into your cup.
- LED Screen – Many Bean-to-Cup machines come with their own integrated LED touchscreen for self-service use. They are easy to navigate your way around, choose what type of coffee you prefer and what size you would like.
- Touch free operation - In light of the covid-19 pandemic, many workplaces are looking to reduce common touch points by introducing coffee machines with touch free ordering via smartphone apps and infrared sensors. View Touch Free Machines.
What Functionality to Consider in Your Commercial Coffee Machine?
There are many elements to consider when selecting the perfect Commercial Coffee Machine for your business. Liquidline will work closely with you to establish your requirements and provide a machine that not only meets, but exceeds expectations. Below are just a few of the functions we will consider:
- Capacity – If you require an Office Coffee Machine that can serve a high volume of employees, then it’s important you look for a model with a large water tank capacity of around 1.5 litres or more, so you don't have to refill constantly throughout the day.
- Maintenance – Regular cleaning and descaling your Industrial Coffee Machine will help keep it working well for longer. Look for automatic cleaning programs to make it easier to maintain in the long-term. If your machine needs to be cleaned manually, be sure to check whether the parts are easy to remove for cleaning and are dishwasher safe.
- Smart Controls – Some Coffee Machines can be connected to your smartphone where you can monitor water levels, adjust temperature levels, create your own coffee recipes and access troubleshooting advice or maintenance alerts.
- Automatic Grinding – Before coffee beans can be used to make espresso, they need to be finely ground. The benefits of a Bean-to-Cup Machine are that it can grind coffee beans on demand, whenever you want to make a coffee. You can also adjust the coarseness settings and grind new coffee for every cup.

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 Commercial Coffee Machine is 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. Cleaning, boiler inspections and water filter changes can dramatically increase the longevity.
When you lease a Commercial Coffee Machine and buy consumables directly from Liquidline, we’ll provide ongoing maintenance and servicing totally free of charge.
How Often do I Need to Clean my Commercial Coffee Machine?
Low capacity Office Coffee Machines that cost between £500 - £2,000 will require daily cleaning and weekly deep cleaning cycles, whereas more advanced Bean-to-Cup Commercial Coffee Machines that cost from £2,500 up to £12,000 will have automatic daily cleaning built-in, therefore cleaning would not be required.
