Were you recently on holiday and noticed one of those really awesome coffee machines that have a touch screen with lots of functionality and of course hot chocolate! mmhHMMM.
Other places you might find them are of course in the office, or at golf clubs. Even in private hospitals.
You might even have noticed them in the first class lounge at railway stations. Not to suggest that it justifies the rail ticket prices!
(However, the quality of the rail operations in the UK considering the size of the network and all of the ins and outs of it, is of course exceptional and its what makes it historically and currently one of the finest in the world.)
You know, touch screen coffee machines are becoming increasing more common both domestically and commercially.
So perhaps you may even envy a friend with a touch screen coffee machine and you feel now’s the right time to outdo them and glorify your kitchen! \m/
But back to touch screen coffee machines, please!
So what are the pros and cons of Touch Screen coffee machines?
The interface is going to be easier to use and can often be customised in terms of font size for those who are visually impaired.
- Some Touch Screen coffee machines have Bluetooth so that coffee can be made from bed! Or before the commercial break when watching TV. (No more missing some of the second half of Coronation Street or Eastenders, or whatever tickles your fancy).
- You can expect to see a programmable timer at the very least!
- Some coffee machines support alerts to a mobile app when water-tanks and bean hoppers are empty.
- BUT, a touch screen might equal extra power consumption or an extra part that needs to be replaced and it could also be damaged just like any other screen.
