Best Alternative to Kenco Singles Coffee Machine

If you have a Kenco Singles machine and are looking for a UK alternative, please read on! We’ll give you the lowdown on your best options now that Kenco Singles drinks have been discontinued.

What happened to Kenco Singles?

Designed as a direct competitor to the Flavia coffee machine rangethe Kenco Singles business coffee machine used a cartridge drinks system.

Whilst simple and effective, the Kenco Singles machine struggled to compete with other office coffee machines on the market - such as the Flavia Creation 600. Kenco Singles offered a single drinks system - making it less sophisticated than other coffee machines which use 2 drinks (coffee and a froth/milk option) or have the ability to froth fresh milk to create barista style lattes, cappuccinos, hot chocolates and more.

The Kenco singles business coffee machine was de-listed in 2013 and production of Kenco Singles drinks cartridges was discontinued in December 2017. As an alternative to Kenco Singles, we highly recommend the Flavia C600.

Why we rate the Flavia C600

Larger Variety of Higher Quality Drinks

Kenco singles offered approximately 9-10 drinks in total, whereas the Flavia

C600 offers 10 different options for your coffee cup alone. Whereas Kenco Singles served freeze dried Nescafe coffee and PG Tips tea, the Flavia creation 600 offers you real, freshly ground coffees and fresh leaf teas such as Lavazza coffee. There is also the option of indulgent Cadbury Hot Chocolate. The Kenco Singles machine cant offer cappuccinos, lattes or flat whites with sachets or fresh milk.

Highly Sophisticated Pouring System

The Flavia Creation 600 Coffee Pod Machine

With the Flavia C600 business coffee machine you have three different brewing options when it comes to having your barista favourites.

This machine's most exciting feature is its ability to froth any fresh milk including dairy alternatives. The milk is frothed in cup so you don't have to keep a tank full of milk or deal with the tube cleaning that comes with most fresh milk systems. 

The second option is to use the new Flavia Indulgence sachets with have the milk and coffee in a single sachet and are available for lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and flat whites. No second sachet required.

Option number three is for the Flavia traditionalist who have known and loved the two pack system with the Real Milk Froth. Fear not you can still use this feature.

The C600 business coffee machine still brews your filter coffees and teas to perfection with a single sachet including the new Lavazza Coffees which elevate the Flavia choices to a whole new level.  

Just as Clean and Easy

One of the things many Kenco Singles users loved about their old machine was how clean and easy the cartridge drinks were to use. Empty the cartridges and keep the machine wiped down. The Flavia Creation 600 and Flavia Freshpack drinks system offers that same ease of use, and a unrivalled record for reliable performance, year on year.
