Kenco Local Business Service have recently had a spate of Astro coffee vending machines placed with it’s customers. It’s variations are ideal for use in a large office environment.
The most popular version that we are placing at the moment is the bean to cup version with fresh brew tea using either 7oz or 9oz cups. You can use your own mug to vend the drink into or use the paper cups that are internal to the machine. A full range of speciality coffees made from fresh beans is available including cappuccino, latte and mocha. The freshbrew tea brewer allows the machine to produce a very acceptable cup of tea indeed. Add to this the ability to vend a range of decaffeinated coffee drinks and luxury hot chocolate drinks then you have a complete office coffee vending machine.
The other versionthat is becoming more popular is again bean to cup coffee with fresh brew tea, but in this instance with a 12oz coffee shop style cup. This piece of equipment really does allow you to bring the coffee shop experience to your office. As with the standard bean to cup machine you can dispense into your own mug.
The Astro also comes in a soluble ingredient format. This means that the coffees and teas are produced with instant granules. The upshot of this is that the drinks are easier produce and the machine itself is less expensive as it is a simpler system. The general consensus is that the drinks quality is lower with this system. The drinks quality can be perfectly acceptable (if set up correctly) but will fall short of the standards set by the bean to cup systems. The soluble ingredient system will also dispense more quickly than the bean to cup machine. If you have a large number of staff who will be queuing up needing to use the machine in a short space of time then you may find that a system using granulated coffee and tea is more suitable.
