Coin-operated coffee vending machines

The first coin-operated vending machines were introduced in London in the early 1880s, and coffee has always been a much sought-after vending machine item (for obvious reasons if you ask us!).

What are the Benefits?

Having said that, many businesses and offices are opting for free-vend models rather than coin-operated coffee vending machines these days. Nevertheless, we think there are some great advantages to buying or hiring a coin-operated machine, and we’ve gone ahead and listed some of them for you…
  • You make a profit. This may sound obvious, but if people have to pay to use the machine, you won’t have to give away any freebies. In fact, you could make a profit from just three sales a day!
  • People will respect the quality of the coffee. Placing a monetary value on something can suggest to prospective users that you are offering a premium product; something that is really worth paying for.
  • Improved efficiency. If your vending machine is going to be in the office, having to pay may cut down on the number of coffee breaks members of staff take, which can cost the company in time as well as in resources.
Of course, our coin-operated coffee machines also offer the other major benefits of their free-vend counterparts. They provide:
  • Premium-quality, fresh bean to coffee that is good enough to rival the big high street brands. Whether you’re a cappuccino consumer or a latte lover, you’ll look forward to every cup.
  • A selection of other great drinks including tea and hot chocolate in the unlikely event that you decide to have a break from coffee.
  • Great value. You’ll be amazed how reasonable they are to lease, with prices starting from just £23 a month. If you’d rather buy one outright we offer low prices and a full 12-month warranty on all our machines.
  • Excellent after-sales service that will keep you in coffee for as long as you need it. We will service your machine to ensure it remains in tip-top condition and are always at the end of the phone if you need any help or advice.
  • A super-simple process for reordering coffee, chocolate, milk, cups, sugar and all your other vending machine needs. We also provide point-of-sale materials to boost coffee sales if you experience a rare lull.
