More offices are making their hot drinks with a filter machine, coffee pod machine or fresh bean-to-cup coffee machine.

The Office Coffee Company's 2015 survey highlighted a strong shift towards coffee being the favourite hot drink of office workers. “The choice of drinks on the high street is now being replicated in the home, and the office,” comments Richard Doherty, managing director at the Office Coffee Company. He adds “there’s no escaping the need for choice as coffee drinkers are split in their preference for a Cappuccino, Latte, Americano, Flat White or Espresso. We even found a desire amongst 10% of office workers for hot chocolate.”

The survey also revealed that 47% of office workers are leaving the office during the working day to purchase coffee from the high street. “Wouldn’t it be better to have coffee shop choice and quality-tasting hot drinks on site,” comments Richard.

The Office Coffee Company, a provider of ethical, beverages and coffee machines for businesses, is on a mission to ensure nobody has a bad coffee at work ever again. They are also passionate about sustainability issues and uniquely offer Coffee from Cool Earth, a unique charity that protects the rainforests.

In this years’ survey office workers were asked about the importance of their employer’s green credentials. 63% answered ‘very important’ or ‘quite important’. Despite this, only 25% of office workers surveyed could be confident that their employers provide ethically sourced tea and coffee.
