Needs and expectations in terms of coffee preparation tend to change according to many aspects. The number of employees undergoes changes; office space increases or decreases when companies relocate, and room arrangement varies with new people joining the crew. In order to handle dynamic conditions, offices need flexible solutions that can be modified upon changing demand; for instance, by adding or removing subsequent modules.
