Coffee machine for a shul
« on: December 26, 2019, 01:26:21 PM »
What's a good coffee system for a shul, assuming nobody wants to brew a pot every day or clean anything, and assuming say 15-20 cups usage per day?

Is K-cup machine the best bet?

BUT those keurigs get pretty gross if you don't clean them. Also bear in mind that if people are doing different flavors and caffeinated/decaf, they may end up wanting to run a clean cycle through the machine every time. This reduces the convenience factor by a lot.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

We're not buying decaf, and def not buying flavors. This is an orthodox congregation.

The Bialystoker Shul on the Lower East Side has a fancy commercial Keurig machine. It's hooked up to the water supply and it also gets rid of the used k-cups.

At least that's how I remember it. I haven't been there in a while.

A shul I was in recently had a nice touch screen machine with like 7 different options. Supposedly they go thru 1500 cups weekly or maybe it said monthly... either way too fancy for henche
