  • New Manual for the Office

    Hello there

    Our crappy automatic coffee machine just leaked black goop all over the kitchen bench for the last time, may it RIP.

    Now I have to find a new machine and Im really struggling! I call dealers and theyre so useless, its as if they dont need our business. And when I email our budget I get really rude replies. Its not my money though. Im doing the best I can with the orders Ive been given.

    I was wondering if theres anyone who can make some suggestions.

    * There are 10 coffee drinkers in the office
    * I can take care of the coffee machine
    * If we buy, our budget goes up to $700 (This is including the grinder)
    * If we rent, no more than $30 per week (This is including the grinder)
    * Wed like a manual or semi-automatic
    * Were a green company so the companies we buy or rent from cant be wasteful or using child labour etc

    Ive been researching this for a while and Im leaning towards renting a BEZZERA BZ02S for $15.58 per week or buying a Saeco Via Venezia Coffee Machine for around $400.

    Please Please Please give me some direction???

    Your budget is a little low for my recommendation
    A Nemox Dell Opera @ $799

    However the Bezzera BZ02S is a better machine and from what you have described its my pick to rent one
    Its also fully tax deductible

          hmm...10 staff members, 2 coffees each per day in a cafe somewhere at $3 each = $360/week or around $18000/year....

          Deduct a kg of coffee and 20 litres of milk per week...$4000 less say $200 for power- being massively generous....We have $13800 remaining...

          For this, your business wants to outlay $400 on a cheap domestic machine  :-?

          Now thats an unusual set of numbers.

          I recommend a big tin of International Roast....

            Hi Cath

            In the search for the right gear for your office it would also help to mention your locality and the approx. number of coffees that the machine is expected to make per day.

            Renting may sound like an attractive option until you get the fine print, eg. minimum rental period, prescriptive maintenance schedule (read costly), etc.

            And yes, while rental is tax deductible, depreciation can be a more attractive alternative.

            Hope thats of some use!

              With that budget and considering the number of people in the office I would just get a grinder and drip filter machine.  Works for us.  The fact is most people in the office wouldnt know how to use an espresso machine anyway so would be making crap coffee.  The cheaper machines are going to be too finicky so it really isnt worth it in my opinion.  Spend $400 on a grinder and get a $60 drip machine.  Makes excellent black coffees!!!

              Of course another option would be to double or triple the budget and talk to everyone in the office to see if they would agree to pay $2 a week for a machine. Say the machine has a life of 5 years that is $5200 you can spend on machine and servicing over that period.
