Pros & Cons of Filter Coffee Machines
Low Upfront Cost
Due to the simple mechanics within a filter coffee machine, they are generally much cheaper to purchase than other types of coffee machines, such as bean to cup or traditional espresso machines that are much more sophisticated in terms of technology.
Filter coffee machines offer an extremely cost-effective solution to brewing large volumes of fresh black coffee. Some machines even offer portion control, allowing you to control profit margins.
A filter coffee machine not only brews large volumes of coffee quickly, but some models even include insulated urns and hot plates to maintain temperature control.
Black Coffee Only
The biggest disadvantage of filter coffee machines is that they only offer plain black coffee. If you’re looking to serve a range of more exciting speciality coffees to your customers and team then a bean to cup coffee machine would be more suitable.
As filter coffee machines rely on gravity to drip water through the coffee grounds, unlike a traditional espresso machine that uses pressure, it can take a little while to prepare the coffee. Whilst large volumes of black coffee can be prepared and stored, it’s important to start brewing well ahead of time.
