For many people, a cup of coffee is a great way to start another day at work. Most offices already have their own coffee vending machines, but if you still don’t have one, there are mighty good reasons to actually consider it.
Plain and Simple Convenience
Workers love coffee in the morning, and fast. No need to grind beans, prepare the machine, wait for the coffee to brew or wash the machine. Everything is instant! Seconds matter, specially in terms of 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, you nail it perfect, other times, it’s pure disaster. Did you put too much water or too much coffee? Who really has time for that? With a vending machine, you get the exact same taste every single cup.
Science has established that coffee increases productivity. And workers enjoy that. But the extra energy is not even all there is to it.
Everyday, employees walk away from their desks to get a cup of coffee, and take at least 7-10 minutes before going back. If you have a vending machine right where they are, it will take them a lot less time to do that and return to work. Just think of all that time waiting for the water to boil and then cleaning up after.
Considering that an average person consumes around 3 cups of hot drinks a day, this can build up to a substantial amount of time lost for your company. With a vending machine, coffee can be dispensed in under 20 seconds!
This is an often overlooked point, but one that must not be ignored by business owners or managers. Imagine the time you save with an employee who no longer has to cross the street to get their Starbucks fix. Or the cost of having coffee delivered to your office every single day.
Remember, lost time means lost revenue, and this isn’t just about 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 workers.
According to statistics, one out of two Americans drinks coffee day to day. 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? A nice cup of coffee would be a simple but pleasant way to improve the image of your company.
