Whether you’re a Rhode Islander sipping on coffee or coffee milk on your break, it’s nice not to spend the extra time leaving the building to go grab the cup of joe somewhere else. With the return of workers to the office, many businesses are encouraging employees to take breaks on-site through creating spaces workers can relax and enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee with a snack or meal. In addition to being relaxing, office coffee breaks have many benefits for workers!
Benefits of Coffee Breaks
Increased Productivity: Coffee contains caffeine, which is known for its ability to fight fatigue and increase energy levels by altering levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Additionally, taking a break from work increases focus when employees return to work, thus increasing their productivity.
Health Benefits: Some research suggests that drinking coffee could help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cognitive decline.
Time to De-Stress: Work can always be stressful and coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t easy on most workers. An office coffee break offers staff a step away from the workspace and allows them time to relax in a breakroom they can enjoy.
Types of Office Coffee Service
There are many routes to take when thinking about bringing in a coffee service for the office. We’re here to lay them out for you.
Some businesses might be looking to provide all the bells and whistles for coffee service. Others might want to just provide a machine their workers can purchase a cup of coffee from. Read below to find out the difference between the various coffee service options.
Coffee Pot Service:
If you’re a traditionalist, this might be the best choice for you. With a coffee pot service, a company would install a drip coffee pot in the space with cups, creme, sugar and any other coffee amenities placed around. Most commonly with this option the business owner will pay for all the supplies, making coffee complimentary for all the workers.
If brewing a pot of coffee for the whole office doesn’t sound good to you, K-Cups might be the solution you’re looking for. Once Keurig coffee maker is in the space, owners can choose one of two solutions. The business may either choose to buy and provide the K-cups for the workers to take as they please, or K-Cups can be installed in a snack vending machine for individual sale near the Keurig unit.
Coffee Vending Machines:
One of the best options for individual sales, a coffee vending machines allow the purchaser to choose their drink whether it be espresso, cappuccino, or a plain black cup of coffee and brews it upon payment. These machines are most diverse when it comes to forms of payment, as they accept cash, credit, debit, and Apple Pay.
Brio Up is an automatic dispenser that perfectly meets the needs of medium-sized communities, thanks to a wide range of coffees and hot beverages. If a coffee vending machine is too big to physically fit into your breakroom, a Brio machine would be a more size-accommodating option.
If none of these choices sound like a great fit, don’t fret – options for coffee service are endless!
