Need some help figuring out what seems to be an impossible purchase - a coffee machine for the office.

Ideally we want a machine that makes single cups of coffee but NO K-CUPS OR PODS (must use beans, and real water).

Something like this.

Problem was, that one comes with a minimum commitment to buy $1,000 / month worth of coffee and supplies which is just not possible. (We are 20 ppl.)

So.... we are finding out it's impossible to just buy a commercial coffee machine that makes fresh coffee...no PODS.

Any thoughts? Any recommendations?

Get as Bunn and stop trying to do only a single cup.

Single cup and no pods is going to be impossible.

This.  The coffee snobs will just have to suck it up.

Not cheap but Technivorm is the undisputed leader in home brewers.

I have the 8-cup version but use it almost solely to brew 1 cup at a time.
