Do you have a commercial coffee machine at home or office? Do you have any idea how much money you can save with a high-quality coffee machine at home/office?
Most people don’t really pay attention to the amount of money they spend on daily coffee. The truth is that a lot of money can be spent on coffee from coffee shops if you sit down and do the maths. The good news is that you could save quite a bit of money in the long run by investing in a high-quality coffee machine.
While high-quality coffee machine costs a lot of money, coffee is something you are going to drink almost every day, especially if you are an avid coffee drinker. If you buy a durable machine that is expected to last anywhere from 8 to 10 years, you will eventually end up saving a ton of money. Keep reading today’s blog article to find out how you can save money with quality coffee machines.
Is It Worth Buying a Home Espresso Coffee Machine?
The short answer? Yes! You will undoubtedly save a ton of money by investing in a home espresso coffee machine. Here’s a quick look at the maths on how investing in your own coffee machine will help you save money.
Takeaway coffee from coffee shops or cafes costs around $4 to more than $5. We will consider the average cost to be $4.50. Let’s assume that you have 2 people in the household who drink coffee daily. The total cost of consuming coffee from coffee shops comes to more than $3,200 per year for 2 people.
Let’s consider the cost of making coffee at home using an espresso coffee machine. A manual espresso coffee machine costs around $1200 though you can spend a lot less or a lot more money. This machine is expected to last around 8 years.
The annual cost of using the machine comes to $150 if you consider the lifespan to be 8 years. Considering the cost of coffee beans at $40 per kilogram and using 16 g of coffee for each double shot, the annual cost of coffee beans comes out to around $470. At a price of $2.50 per litre, the cost of milk comes to around $460. Let’s also add around $100 to the overall cost for parts and maintenance each year.
If you add up all these costs of making coffee at home for 2 people, you should spend less than $1,200 each year on making your own coffee.
If you only consider the maths and investing around $1,200 upfront in a coffee machine isn’t a problem for you, you will save a ton of money each year by making your own good quality coffee in an espresso coffee machine at home.
Saving Money Making Coffee In The Office
While we have established that having a home espresso coffee machine is worth it, let’s also discuss how having a high-quality commercial coffee machine at the office saves a ton of money for a business and also acts as a nice incentive for employees.
If an office does not have a manual or automated coffee machine, they will usually have a kettle as a cheaper option. This might come as a surprise to most people, but operating a kettle is as expensive as compared to operating a top-notch commercial coffee machine.
In terms of sheer energy costs, operating a bean-to-cup coffee machine for making espressos is much cheaper as compared to making those espressos using a kettle.
On top of that, a bean-to-cup commercial coffee machine makes espresso much faster. Additionally, kettle coffee quality cannot even come close to the quality of machine coffee made using a high-quality commercial machine.
Furthermore, having a commercial coffee machine in an office means employees feel valued and are likely to be more productive. In short, having a high-end commercial coffee machine in an office is also a morale booster for employees.
Overall, investing in a high-quality coffee machine for home or office use is a financially savvy decision. It not only saves a lot of money over the years but also provides better quality coffee as compared to alternatives. High-quality machines do cost a lot of money upfront but these machines tend to have a lifespan of 8 to 10 years. This means the per year cost is negligible when you compare it to the cost of buying a coffee daily from a coffee shop.
