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
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 ready in seconds! Seconds always count, especially when you talk of business.
Same 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 all day figuring that out. With a vending machine, you get the exact same taste every single cup.
Science has established that coffee increases productivity. And employees love that. But it’s not even just about feeling energetic.
Everyday, employees leave their desks for at least 7 – 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee. 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 imagine the amount of time it takes to boil water, sip the coffee and then clean up afterwards.
If you take into account that an average worker drinks about 3 cups of hot beverages a day, that can add up to a considerable amount of time lost for the company. A vending machine will dispense coffee in less than 20 seconds!
This point is usually overlooked, but one that business owners or managers should not ignore. 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 those coffee deliveries day after 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 employees, who are no less than your most valuable assets.
For the Client
Statistics tell us that half of Americans have a coffee every single day. That means not just your employees but your clients too should get their coffee. Imagine them frowning on tasteless, lifeless coffee during your 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.
