The Best Alternative to Kenco Singles

However, if you are looking for a new office coffee machine, it’s worth considering other options. With the Kenco Singles machines no longer being manufactured, it’s probably only a matter of time before the drinks cartridges are phased out.

If you are looking for alternatives to Kenco singles or have a Kenco Singles Brewer, please read on!

We’ll give you the lowdown on your best options if you find Kenco Singles are no longer available in your area.

What happened to Kenco Singles?

Designed as a direct competitor to the Flavia range,  the Kenco singles brewer uses a cartridge drinks system.

Whilst simple and effective the Kenco singles brewer struggled to compete with other office coffee machines on the market - such as the Flavia Creation 500 (the latest version of the Flavia Creation 400). Kenco singles offers a single drinks system - making it less sophisticated than other drinks systems which use 2 drinks (coffee and a froth/milk option) to create barista style lattes, cappuccinos, hot chocolates and more.

If you weren’t aware, the Kenco singles brewer was de-listed in 2013. This coffee machine remains available via certain outlets, and the Kenco singles cartridges are widely available.

However, if you are looking for a new office coffee machine, it’s worth considering other options. With the Kenco Singles machines no longer being manufactured, it’s probably only a matter of time before the drinks cartridges are phased out.

As an alternative to Kenco Singles, we highly recommend the Flavia C500 (formerly Flavia C400).

Best alternative to the Kenco Singles Brewer:
Why we rate the Flavia C500

Larger variety of drinks

Flavia drinksKenco singles offers approximately 9-10 drinks in total, whereas Flavia C500 offers 10 different coffees alone.


Highly sophisticated pouring system


Whilst the Kenco singles brewer uses cartridges that serve all drinks in the same way and at the same temperature, the Flavia C500 infuses teas and coffee at separate temperatures.

And the sophistication doesn’t end there. You only have to watch your drinks being served in a glass mug to see how each drink type is poured differently for optimum taste by the Flavia Creation 500. Selecting the Cappuccino option, you’ll notice the drink being poured in two layers (froth on top) just as you would see a barista do. Hot Chocolate is poured using the Fabulous Froth and has a delay on the chocolate which means your drink comes with a chocolate topping - almost like sprinkles!


It’s the 2 pack drink system (coffee and milk separates) used by Flavia machines that allows this level of sophisticated pouring - resulting in a superior quality barista style drink.


Better quality Coffees and Teas

Whereas Kenco Singles serves freeze dried Nescafe coffee and PG Tips tea, Flavia machines offer you ground Alterra Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee and Yorkshire tea. The great taste and quality of Yorkshire Tea and Alterra Coffee makes them firm favourites here at Ratio Vending and with our customers too.
