Should Your Office Have a Hot Drink Vending Machine

In today’s fast-paced office environment, tea and coffee are undoubtedly the drinks fueling our workforce and the need for convenient and efficient solutions for hot drinks is more prominent than ever. While hot drink vending machines have traditionally been seen as the most efficient tool for this purpose, more and more offices are turning to instant boiling water units.

If you’re looking to build the perfect office kitchen setup, continue reading to learn why an instant boiling water unit from Billi UK is the ultimate choice for your workplace.

Are Hot Drink Vending Machines High-Quality?

Hot drinks machines in commercial settings can be split broadly into two categories: freeze-dried powdered machines or the more modern bean-to-cup. Traditional powdered variants generally use the same freeze-dried instant coffee and/or chocolate powder, tea, powdered milk, etc., to make different preset drink formats.

More modern bean-to-cup options are essentially automated espresso machines that grind coffee beans immediately before brewing, this retains more of the nuanced flavours of coffee but can be even more expensive than commercial espresso machines and takes up more space than other vending machines.

Both of these options are simple from an end-user perspective, but changing ingredients regularly, complicated maintenance requirements, high upfront and ongoing costs, and the time required to make individual drinks each time make them impractical as hot drinks machines for small offices and bigger workplaces alike.

Why Choose an Instant Boiling Water Unit Over a Vending Machine?

– Efficiency and Speed: Unlike vending machines that require time and to prepare each generic drink from poor-quality ingredients, instant boiling water units like the Billi Quadra provide immediate access to boiling water. This reduces queues and wait times, especially during peak hours.

– Cost-Effectiveness: Over time, the cost of supplies and maintenance for vending machines adds up. Instant boiling water units, on the other hand, have a lower operational cost and do not require the same level of ongoing expenditure on specific consumables that work with the vending machine.

– Quality and Taste: The taste of drinks from vending machines can often be inconsistent, and even when they are made correctly the mix of stagnant water, instant coffee, and powdered milk is hardly raising employee morale. Billi’s filtration technology ensures that every cup of tea or coffee is made with clean, great-tasting water, enhancing the overall drinking experience.

– Space-Saving Design: Vending machines can take up significant room and aren’t a good hot drinks machine option for small offices. Billi’s units are compact and installed under the benchtop, freeing up valuable office space.

– Environmental Impact: Vending machines often use single-use plastics and consumables, contributing to waste. Our boiling water systems are a more sustainable option, reducing plastic waste and energy consumption with their eco-friendly design.

– Versatility: The biggest advantage over hot drink vending machines is that an instant boiling water unit doesn’t lock you into specific beverages. With a dispenser from Billi UK, your office will be able to easily make any beverages they choose with the ingredients they choose. And with options with filtered chilled, boiling, ambient, and even sparkling water there’s something for everyone.
