It’s not surprising when you think about it. Coffee is a great way to start the day, re-energise you as you start to flag in the afternoon, and is a perfect way to focus your mind on those important tasks. But the best way to improve the focus and energy gained from a cup of joe is by having great quality coffee, and the best quality coffee can only be turned into amazing drinks from a high-quality coffee machine. Our experts at the Office Coffee Company know the value of having a top quality coffee machine in the office and have produced a short guide helping you to understand why your workplace needs one.

1. Everyone wants something different

Whether it is a latte, cappuccino or even a mocha, every employee has a different favourite coffee. While kettles and instant coffee can only produce the same thin brown liquid that most people turn their noses up at, a quality coffee machine can give employees the variety that they deserve. Not only does this boost office morale by allowing everyone to have their favourite type of coffee at all times, it also impresses guests and visiting clients, who will appreciate having a range of excellent coffees offered to them.

2. Caffeine improves productivity at work

Everyone knows that caffeine is a stimulating drink that helps your employees to fight off mental sluggishness and keep themselves focused on the task at hand. Throughout the day, most employees will experience a decline in cognitive abilities, which has a direct impact on their efficiency and productiveness. However, by drinking coffee, caffeine naturally allows the body to bypass this slow down in mental function, keeping everyone efficient and productive.

3. Coffee breaks help with networking

‘Water cooler’ moments have been and gone, but ‘coffee break’ moments are now an ingrained habit within office culture. Taking a coffee break is a great chance for employees to get away from their desks for a little bit and re-energise their bodies, but it also provides an excellent opportunity for networking. Not only will team members be able to catch up on the latest developments within their project during coffee breaks, but it gives the opportunity for different employees to interact, allowing the whole staff to become more integrated. Remember though, people will only really enjoy their coffee breaks if they have access to good coffee!

At the Office Coffee Company, we understand that coffee is central to a productive workplace environment with good moral. Coffee breaks have huge benefits within the workplace, and coffee itself has a number of health benefits.
