For many people, a cup of coffee is a great way to start another day at work. 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..
Workers crave coffee in the morning, and it should come fast. A vending machine eliminates the need to grind beans, prep the machine, brew the coffee or clean the machine. Everything is instant! Seconds always count, especially when you talk of business.
Making great coffee with a traditional machine requires some knowledge about the beans, the machine itself, 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 like that. But it’s not even just about the added energy.
Everyday, employees walk away from their desks to get a cup of coffee, and take at least 7-10 minutes before going back. 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 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. Under 20 seconds is all it takes for a vending machine to dispense coffee!
This argument is often less obvious but one that managers or business owners should look into. 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 daily coffee deliveries.
Remember, lost time is no different from lost profit, and but direct losses is not even where it all ends. Putting a coffee vending machine in your office should be viewed as an investment instead of a cost. You’re investing in your most valuable assets – your employees.
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 dull, tasteless coffee served at those business meetings. That may not speak well of you, would it? A nice cup of coffee would be a simple but pleasant way to improve the image of your company.
