Many people think of a cup of coffee as the best way to jumpstart their day at the office. Most offices are already equipped with their own coffee vending machines, but if yours still doesn’t have one, maybe it’s time you consider the reasons you should..
Employees like coffee in the morning, and it should be fast. A vending machine eliminates the need to grind beans, prep the machine, brew the coffee or clean the machine. It’s all instant! Seconds count, especially if you’re in business.
Consistently Good Taste
If you make coffee using a traditional machine, you need some knowledge about the beans, the machine, the right brewing time, etc. And then sometimes it turns out perfect, and sometimes, it’s just disaster. Was there too much coffee or too much water in the mixture? No one has time for that. With a vending machine, you get the exact same taste every single cup.
Science has proven that coffee boosts productivity. And workers enjoy that. But it’s not even just about the added energy.
Everyday, employees leave their desks for at least 7 – 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee. If there’s a vending machine on site, they can return to work much faster. Just think of all that time waiting for the water to boil and then cleaning up after.
Considering that most workers drink around 3 cups of hot beverages daily, that can sum up to a significant amount of time lost for your business. Under 20 seconds is all it takes for a vending machine to dispense coffee!
Return on Investment
This point is usually overlooked, but one that business owners or managers should not ignore. Imagine the time you’ll save with a worker who no longer has to walk to Starbucks all the way across the street. Or the cost of having coffee delivered to your office every single day.
Take note that lost time translates to lost revenue, but this doesn’t even stop with direct losses. Having a coffee vending machine in your office is an investment, not a cost. You’re investing in your most valuable assets – your employees.
Statistics show that 50% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis. That means not only your employees should get their coffee, but your clients as well. Imagine serving dull, lifeless coffee during those business meetings. That sure won’t reflect well on you, don’t you think? You can always improve your company’s image with a simple but satisfying cup of coffee.
