To be fair the coffee from these machines is usually horrible.
There is a major distinction between machines making coffee from some concentrate, and those grinding beans on the fly. The whole beans variant delivers coffee that is certainly drinkable. Obviously, they cannot in 20 seconds get the same aroma as properly brewed coffee, but it is a lot better than the concentrate. Our current machine even has containers for two different kinds of coffee beans.

The major disadvantage of these machines is that with twenty people in a row to fill their coffee cups, it takes time. They are great for one or two cups, but if you want coffee for a meeting with a lot of participants, you rather go to the canteen to pick up a couple large thermoses of properly brewed coffee.
