Filipinos love coffee specially in the morning or after having a drinking session. It is a part of everyday life. We commonly see various coffee vending machines located in either a convenience store, a sari-sari store or even just beside a house or gasoline station. What’s the difference between various coffee vending machines in the Philippines? Let us find out.
The usual coffee vending machine
Just drop 5 pesos at the coin slot and you will have your coffee in less than a minute. These are the usual coffee vending machines which we can see in locations where there are a lot of people. Vending machines like these dispenses the usual 3-in-1 coffee that we can buy from stores and in some way also produce various blends like chocolate or machiato. It is very affordable to the common Filipino but it is not really pure coffee.
Bean-to-cup means that the coffee that will be produced comes from authentic coffee beans mixed with either milk or chocolate to arrive at the coffee drink you want. Coffee produced from these machines are a bit more expensive since they are pure coffee and in some way produces the same aroma and quality of coffee you enjoy in coffee shops.
What’s the difference between the usual coffee vending machine and bean-to-cup coffee machines?
Basically the main difference is the amount of coffee that you enjoy per cup. If you get your coffee from a bean-to-cup coffee machine you will enjoy more coffee and also pure coffee. It is also fresher since it is extracted directly from coffee beans found in the machine and not pre-processed in a factory.
Honestly speaking bean-to-cup coffee machines generally produce the type of coffee which gives us the health benefits we needed. Why? If coffee undergoes a chemical process, there is the tendency to lose some of its inherent minerals and content which also happens to other products.
Despite all these, there is no harm in getting coffee from both since coffee is a beverage we all love. However, it would be beneficial for coffee lovers like you, to differentiate the types of coffee produced by the two kids of machines.
Have a great coffee time!
