Example of a coffee machine for office

Most of the bean to cup fully automatic coffee machines would be equipped with a touch screen, milk fridge and powder option. These features are pretty common for modern fully automatic coffee machines. In some cases, the rental cost may be further negotiated if customers can commit to contact agreement or consumption of consumable products such as coffee beans and powder mixes. 

Some of the coffee machine rental suppliers would offer one-stop solution service to their high-end rental customers. The supplier would send freshly roasted beans, milk, sugar and powder mix on a regular basis to entice their customers. Regular preventive maintenance will also be rendered to ensure that customers enjoy good brewed coffee on a daily basis. 

F&B Coffee machine rental model


Depending on the type of food and beverage businesses you are running, renting a coffee machine can greatly lowers the startup cost.  

A typical coffee machine range from $10 000 to $30 000, and if you can rent it for a couple of hundreds per month, it saves you the initial expenses. 

Not all businesses are suited for this rental arrangement. This is because the supplier of the coffee machines usually requires the F&B businesses to buy their coffee beans as well. Check out the cafe setup cost calculator to evaluate how much you can save without buying a coffee machine.
