Coffee is the go-to beverage for many Singaporeans in the morning, and having an espresso machine can be a convenient way to get your caffeine fix for the day.
While most coffee lovers would enjoy a cup of good coffee in the morning, few would be interested in maintaining and cleaning an espresso machine. Did you know that there are fully automatic espresso machines that can brew a good cup of coffee, almost on par with those you’d get a cafe, without requiring any skills or maintenance from you?
I’m not sure if it’s due to the rising trend of flexible work arrangements, but we have been getting enquiries for espresso machine rentals in Singapore from offices and even home users.
So, we have compiled the common enquiries and share some reasons why you should consider renting an espresso machine in Singapore here:
Renting an Espresso Machine in Singapore
People are now more conscious about their spending habits and the way they spend. This is why renting an espresso machine has become a popular trend.
When renting an espresso machine, make sure that it comes with all the necessary tools you need to make great espresso at home or in the office. Most packages would include:
- installation (with delivery and piping works)
- scheduled maintenance by the supplier
- coffee beans subscription
What are the different types of espresso machines available for rent in Singapore?
If you looking to rent an espresso machine, do note that your options tend to be limited to super-automatic machines as these are often fuss-free, more durable for rental and don’t require maintenance to be done by the user.
However, you’ll still need to choose between different models, depending on your needs.
Some questions to ask yourself are:
- What type of beverages do I want the coffee machine to offer?
Are all of your expected users coffee lovers? Or would some of them prefer to have non-coffee options like plain hot milk or hot chocolate?
- What is my estimated monthly consumption?
If you expect a higher conception rate of more than 2000 cups per month (which is roughly suitable for an office with 50 pax employees at any given working day), you may want a bigger machine that tends to come with more features).
The opposite is true too.
If you are looking to cater to a small team of fewer than 10 people, you may want to look for a smaller machine and rental package.
- Is aesthetics important?
If you are expecting to welcome and meet clients, this might be important for you. In that case, you may want to opt for brands that are more prominent such as Jura, DeLonghi or even Nescafe (for the non-coffee snobs).
How Much Does It Cost To Rent An Espresso Machine?
Not everyone can afford to buy an espresso machine for their business. Fortunately, there are companies that rent out coffee machines and other related equipment to coffee lovers in Singapore.
You’d be glad to know that renting an espresso machine will not burn a hole in your pocket. Many espresso machine rental packages include free-on-loan machines and regular maintenance. You’ll only need to pay for the coffee beans subscription.
P.S. if you prefer to get the whole works operated by a trained barista, consider our mobile coffee carts instead.
