There are so many different occasions where a cup of coffee is a person's drink of choice.
For many, it’s a way to slow down and relax while others need their shot of caffeine to get them going. Some use coffee as the reason to get together with friends to share a brew – whilst others prefer to savour theirs in peace and quiet…alone. Some like it at the end of the day, others like it first thing in the morning….and for many, the addictive properties of the caffeine means they need their ‘fix’ regularly.
At home alone, in a busy café with friends or in the office, coffee is the business. And when it comes to the business of debating which coffee beans are the best – that’s when the fun really starts !.
For some, it’s the robust and full bodied richness of Costa Rican coffee that can’t be beaten, whilst for others, it’s the creamy mocha of North African coffee that’s the winner. Some aficionados say that the smoky richness of Guatemalan coffee beans is superior, whilst others rate the sweet and mellow richness of Indonesian coffee. With so many different blends and tastes to try, what better way of travelling the coffee world from the comfort of your own home or office than with a coffee machine?.
With a coffee machine, you get the opportunity to sample as many different types of coffee that you want – all at the touch of a button. You’ll also find that many office coffee machine rental businesses also stock a wide variety of different coffee beans and ground coffee – so you can do the ‘world tour’ without needing a passport!. Many of the suppliers also do their own pre-selected variety packs, giving customers an opportunity to sample lots of different kinds of coffee without having to buy larger individual packs.
If you are in the market for a coffee machine and you want the flexibility of trying different brands of coffee, then it’s best to make sure that your rental contract isn’t restrictive . That’s where the business model of Italian espresso producer and equipment supplier, Segafredo Zanetti has proved to be so popular – because people can rent coffee machines from them on easy, flexible and affordable terms, plus they have the freedom to use the coffee of their choice.
It’s also worth noting that not all coffees are the same. As in all industries, there is a certain degree of ‘creativity’ when it comes to packaging and marketing of the products, and it’s important for consumers to know what they should be looking for. Just because a pack is branded as containing ‘100% Arabica beans’ – those beans may have come from a number of different plantations and processing facilities. This may lead to inconsistencies in the characteristics of the coffee – and can affect the creaminess, taste, body and finish of the coffee.
Segafredo is in fact, the only company in the world that controls the entire production process of coffee – all the way from the plant to the cup. They control all steps of the production cycle from the cultivation and selection of the raw material from their plantations in Brazil and Costa Rica to the art of the blending and roasting in modern premises, to the supply of coffee machines which make the perfect cup.
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to the taste of coffee – it’s about personal choice. From the strongest espresso in Italy to smooth lattes in London, from creamy cappuccinos in California to macchiatos in Melbourne, coffee speaks a universal language. Whether you’re relaxing with your favourite blend and the newspaper at home or grabbing your shot from the office coffee machine to give you an energy boost for that all-important meeting – your coffee choice is as individual as you are
