Top 5 Coffee Machines to Enhance any Breakroom

Top 5 Coffee Machines to Enhance any Breakroom

Written by Katie Waxman on January 9, 2024

Every Coolbreakroom must have delicious coffee.  So,  we are breaking down the best coffee machines to choose from.  We had so much fun putting this list together and selected one for every size breakroom. It is no surprise all are either a bean-to-cup machine or a super-automatic. What’s the difference? Both grind, press, and brew fresh beans into an excellent cup of coffee. They are both also convenient to use and offer consistent quality. The super automatic, however,  makes an authentic espresso, adds a steam wand, and has more sophisticated drink recipes.

Each of our selected coffee machines have easy-to-use touchscreens, a multitude of drink options, and no filter paper. Most have superb telemetry and options for fresh milk. Let’s get after it…we are pumped to share with you!
