We don't drink coffee or tea so I'm a bit in the dark when it comes to the coffee and tea world. For those of you that supply coffee and tea is it popular? We're thinking about buying a coffee machine. Do we buy an espresso machine or a coffee capsule machine?
I provide a Keurig with pods, a kettle for tea (and tea) and also a french press with ground coffee. I'm a big coffee drinker so I make sure coffee maker or press is in every unit. It's pretty important to me as a guest. But you don't need a full on machine. A kettle for boiling water is sufficient if you have a french press. I got the french press in my home for $9 US and it provides 2 cups. I also provide sugar but not necessarily cream. I used to provide cream but it went bad so often and the powder kind gets clumpy. So, I just stopped doing the cream.
I followed the link, quote: ''Plastic Taste – Lots of buyers noted that the coffee brewed by the Keurig K50 had a plastic taste in it. That’s a huge issue that undermines just about everything.'' and ''Due to the fact that the K50 isn’t that reliable, breaks quite often, and the coffee might have a plastic taste, it’s better to avoid purchasing this model since the chances of being left disappointed is high.''
Hello all :)
Coffee and tea makes everyday more wonderful!
I supply assorted selection of teas, coffee, sugar and sweetener :)
Nesspresso and French press are my favorite.
Usually when I travel I take some delicious coffee and teas with me but I`m always happy to see that host has been thoughtful :)
Good luck with choosing your favorite coffee maker :)
Happy & Sunny Regards from Riga :)
I don’t have a coffee machine due to the expense of it and the plastic waste of those coffee capsules.
Instead I offer my guests freshly made traditional espresso coffee made from a Bialletti or Mokka coffee pot that Italians typically use on their stove.
I also offer the choice of a cafetière which the Americans and Canadians like, they call it pressed coffee.
For coffee I have quality Italian Lavazza coffee.
For tea I have either loose leaf Taylor’s of Harrogate English breakfast tea, or a selection of Twinings quality herbal teas on offer at breakfast.
I removed tea making facilities from the bedrooms to prevent spills on the carpet and rings on the bedroom furniture as I have very expensive hand made furniture in the Mahogany bedroom.
Also there is no kettle in the bedroom due to the high power useage by Chinese guests who will continually use a device called a Nette Pot for steam inhalation.
I wouldn't provide a Nespresso simply because of the terrible amount of nonrecycled (despite the claims, not to mention plastic isn't actually recyclable in any meaningful way) waste they generate, but that's me (environmental scientist in another life). We have a simple drip coffee pot and a large Bodum. We had a Bialetti but people don't know how to use them. It got put in the dishwasher which destroys the finish and puts a black residue all over it. I scrubbed it clean (took ages) and then another guest did it. No more Bialetti! We provide nice coffee and a variety of nice teas, caffeinated and otherwise.
I also would not provide any kind of capsule coffee machine or have one in my house. They should be green-taxed out of existence as far as I'm concerned! I provide a cafetiere and some ground coffee, and some good quality instant coffee. If I had a high-end listing I would provide a proper espresso machine.
