Bean to Cup coffee machines: 20 reasons to choose one for your office.
Bean to Cup coffee machines, anyone who is a regular coffee drinker is likely to have come across these Café-Esque machines at some point. The value of Bean to Cup machines is in the name of taking whole beans and making your desired cup of coffee, and the coffee is produced by following the basics of a café-made coffee.
Besides the fact that you can have great café-style coffees at the push of a button, there are many benefits to Bean to Cup machines in the office.
Reasons to have one of Cuco Coffees Bean to Cup coffee machines in your office.
1. Easy access to great coffee
Bean to cup machines in the office makes a great cup of coffee available on-demand at any time of the day. No need to make a coffee run to the local café.
2. Fresh roasted whole beans
Cuco Coffee machines only use fresh whole beans. This means the Bean is ground only when needed to make a cup of coffee. It ensures the freshness of the Bean with no drying out of the oils required to produce that lovely crème on top of espressos or americanos. The beans may have been ground well ahead of their required use with other office coffee machines.
3. Burr Grinder
All Cuco Coffees Bean to Cup Machines come standard with a burr grinder. Burr grinders are used in cafes to grind the Bean before the coffee is made. The reason a burr grinder is essential is due to the way it grinds the beans. The Burr grinder crushes the Bean to the required size between two cogs. This ensures the purest grinding process allowing the best flavour to be extracted from the coffee bean. However, due to speed, other grinders, such as electric grinders, tend to generate friction and thus heat; this can change the bean flavour.
4. Large Puck – Quantity of coffee in your cup
The amount of coffee in your daily cup is not as straightforward as you think. Pod coffee machines tend to have around 7 grams of ground coffee beans per cup. However, Bean to Cup machines such as Cuco Coffees has an internal puck that can hold 11 grams of freshly ground coffee beans. This brings them the closest to the Barista made coffee, using roughly 17 grams. This tends to result in Bean to Cup machines providing the best value per cup compared to alternative office coffee options.
5. Fresh Milk Fridge and System
Unlike other office coffee systems, Cuco Coffees Bean to Cup machines all come standard with a fresh milk fridge. This makes it possible for the machine to pull fresh milk when needed into the milk system. The milk system on our Bean to Cup coffee machines can texture milk for smooth flat whites or froth milk for a creamy cappuccino.
6. Wide variety of choice
Bean to Cup coffee machines, especially with the milk fridge and system, allow for a much great variety of choices than alternative office coffee options. Cuco’s Bean to Cup machines offer a lot of choices with 21 – 32 different beverages. This ensures there is always something for everyone.

8. Great service to offer clients
When clients arrive, offering them coffee is always a good ice breaker. With a bean to cup machine, you can provide clients with an impressive range of options. From smooth flat whites to rich cappuccinos or golden crème topped espressos, to name but a few.
9. Customisable coffee, be your own Barista
