There are many terminology in the office coffee service world, and free on loan coffee machine is one of them. Rather than writing wall of words about it, let us bring you through it in a questions and answers format.
What is Free On Loan Coffee Machine?
A coffee machine is termed to be “Free On Loan” when the coffee machine is not charging you for the machine. Depending on the office coffee service terms and conditions, usually it will entails a minimum order of coffee from this supplier.
Who are the ones providing it?
In Singapore, it is believe that Nestle Professional (previously known as Nestle Food Services) pioneer this scheme when they were pushing out their Lioness Nescafe machine.
Since then, many coffee suppliers have adopted this model.
For folks that prefers Roast and Ground coffee, there is Kaffa Kaldi, offering Bravilor Sego as a free on loan option (which we thought is a really cool machine)
It is Really Free?
Yes. You do not have to pay for the machine. But, you do have to purchase ingredients from the company. And usually it includes, the coffee beans, the milk, chocolate mixes and even tea (in Singapore context, you can get Teh Tarik)
