The benefits of a coffee machine in the office or workspace are well known, but how much extra work does it create for facilities management or catering staff? In an age where companies want to encourage staff to remain on the premises at lunchtime, offering great-tasting coffee is a must. The secret to making life easier for facilities management teams with bean-to-cup coffee machines is to make the right choice. Leasing an office coffee machine – rather than buying your coffee machine – is a no-brainer for most FM and catering teams. You gain more than just tax benefits from leasing a coffee machine.
Why lease your coffee machine?
- No large capital outlay required – so you can preserve your cash reserves
- More expensive machines are usually more affordable – so you get better value for your investment
- Cost certainty – so it’s easier to plan your monthly budget
- Coffee machine training for staff – so you’re up and running quickly
And at the moment, we provide all new customers with a huge starter pack, including either a range of crockery or takeaway cups and lids; Fairtrade-certified tea, brown and white sugar, and caramelise biscuits; and even a chocolate sprinkle shaker thrown in.
Choosing the right bean-to-cup machine
The key to choosing the best bean-to-cup coffee machine for your business is to look at your staff numbers and the capacity and capabilities of the coffee machine. Our best bean-to-cup machine, the HV9C, is designed for continuous coffee catering and up to 180 cups of coffee a day. It’ll serve two barista-quality lattes in just over one minute. And you can programme up to 34 speciality coffees for automatic production. For a larger company with a lot of footfall in the dining room or throughout the day, it’s a sensible investment.
Not least because it’s low-maintenance. Integrated rinsing, cleaning and descaling programme, a built-in water filtering system and programmable water, coffee strength, temperatures, switch-on and -off times, plus energy saving mode; all these features make coffee machine maintenance minimal for FM or catering teams.
At Nationwide we lease 8 different bean-to-cup coffee machine options, which means it’s easy to choose a coffee machine which will match the needs of your business, whatever size it may be.
