Nespresso vs Foundation Coffee Office Coffee Machines

Date: 24-04-2020

When it comes to choosing an office coffee machine, you need a machine that offers reliable performance, great value for money, but above all else, fantastic coffee.


If you are currently looking at investing in a new coffee machine for your office or any other communal area, you may be feeling a little bamboozled by the sheer amount of choice on the market today. From capsules to beans and now even bags, coffee can be delivered in a number of innovative, fast and convenient ways.


In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the difference between Nespresso coffee machines and Foundation coffee machines and help you to make an informed choice for your office.


Nespresso Coffee Machines - Are Capsules the Way Forward?


Nespresso burst onto the coffee machine scene in 1996, would you believe? Well, we say burst but it was more of a slow burn. The first capsule system was released to the Swiss market with little success and it would be a few years later that we started to see the Nespresso becoming more and more mainstream.


Nespresso coffee machines are available as office coffee machines and come in a variety of models. Their capsules are available in a wide selection of different flavours and can be preloaded into the machine. The number of capsules you can preload will depend on the model you choose. However, Nespresso’s single-serve aluminium capsules are notorious for creating unnecessary waste. Once used, the capsules must be tossed into the bin and unfortunately, will end up as landfill. For the environmentally-aware office looking for a sustainable coffee machine, that’s not a good thing.


Foundation Coffee Office Coffee Machines - Fresh Beans, Great Taste, Less Waste


Foundation Coffee office coffee machines offer a wide selection of models to choose from. Whether you are looking for an office coffee machine for a small office or you need a high capacity machine that can cope with the demands of a busy hospitality area, we have a machine to suit your needs.


Our coffee machines do not use capsules and instead use fresh beans that are ground on demand. That means no plastic waste in landfill and you can also use the used grounds for composting and other sustainable uses. That’s perfect if you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint and raise your eco-friendly status. Oh, and our beans are Fairtrade so you are helping to boost community trade around the world by choosing our products.


Foundation Coffee machines also use fresh milk, allowing you to create a wide range of coffee specialities, either pre-programmed or your own recipe. From lattes to cappuccinos to macchiatos to flat whites, the choice is yours.


Nespresso Coffee Machines - How Do They Stack Up on Cost?


Nespresso capsule machines generally cost less than buying a fully automated coffee machine outright but this is where the savings end. Capsules are much more expensive than fresh beans or pre-ground coffee as you are paying for the convenience. In fact, in some cases, you could end up spending almost double on Nespresso capsules that you would on the equivalent amount of fresh beans. While Nespresso machine capsules may look good, do you really want to be spending over the odds for your coffee?


If you need your machine to be repaired or serviced, you will also have to pay these costs. Nespresso machines will also require regular cleaning to ensure they perform well and are kept hygienic.


Foundation Coffee Office Coffee Machines - Free to Lease, No Maintenance Costs


Wouldn’t it be great if you could rent or lease a new office coffee machine without worrying about substantial upfront costs?
