When you think of independent coffee shops you may think of a traditional coffee shop and what they offer. You may be surprised to know that in recent years more and more shops have become innovative in offering their coffee to their customers and have moved on from the average roast and brewed to offering many different types of gourmet coffee.

In recently published annual survey prices for British gourmet coffees increased by 11% and for privately owned labels they increased by 13% for 2010. 2010 also saw the annual growth of new coffee shops opening in England growing from 11 to 31, according to the British Retail Consortium.

The cost of a cup of coffee on line is now a very modestly priced $2.49 and is likely to continue to fall as technology improves.

Individuals are also becoming more aware of the impact of their every day decisions on the environment around them and companies like Starbucks and so many others are working hard to provide a positive image of green tea, coffee and other drinks to the public.

Thanks to the energy drive and the popularity of green tea, many people are shifting to these drinks to help them achieve their fitness goals and help them reduce cravings for sugar and dairy foods.

The problem with coffee is that it is not a one flavor drink, meaning that many companies offer more than just caffeine and that also includes carbs such as sugar and that can come as a result of a high sugar content. Starbucks has come under some criticism lately for its use of foam and other crunchy ingredients in their coffee. This has lead some people to question whether they are helping to contribute to obesity or whether their coffee cups are really packed with calories.

Some companies have even gone as far as developing fat free versions of their coffee beverages to help combat obesity. Although these have not been without controversy, it is also widely known that fat-free versions of various drinks are largely marketed to the health conscious consumer.

The only way these drinks are comparable with other drinks is the amount of caffeine in them. Other drinks such as Red Bull and others contain twice the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. One of the differences between these two drinks is that they have been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

For those who require a healthy amount of caffeine each day, the best way to enjoy a delicious cup of java is to drink a cup of freshly-squeezed juice. This will contain a healthy dose of vitamin C and other natural ingredients that will assist you to palliate the withdrawal symptoms. In addition, these drinks are not artificially sweetened and so are healthier than many other fruit juices on the market.

However, if you are not likely to make your own juice and would like a more convenient version, you may want to consider the many commercially available coffee makers. These units do not require the need for electricity or batteries which make them more affordable than other types of coffee makers. They also come with built in overtime saving features which include automatic safety shutoffs, so that you will not need to put it on hold while you are sleeping at night or going to work in the day.

If you are only going to have a limited amount of time for drinking one cup of coffee a day, then a small single-cup coffee maker is a good choice. These units do require electricity to refrigerate and heated beds to brew coffee. They are however much easier to install and the finished product is fantastic.

You will find a Coffee Maker slightly confusing at first as you need to type in the required information in the host or browser and then press enter. However, once you find out how easy it is to use these models and get familiar with the types of features available, you will love using one of these wonderful inventions.

A Coffee Maker is fantastic for someone who like very much slinging their drinks for a company, where they unfortunately know they will get a lot of customers. For restaurants, these machines are ideal for boosting the productivity of team of workers. Excellent news for you!

If you currently don’t own a machine, think about getting one. I think you will be very surprised at the difference in your productivity.
