For many people, a cup of coffee is a great way to start another day at work. Most offices already have a coffee vending machine, but if you haven’t even thought of getting one for yours, maybe you can start considering why you should..
Employees like coffee in the morning, and it should be fast. With a vending machine, there’s no need for grinding beans, preparing the machine, brewing and washing the machine. Everything is instant! Seconds always count, especially when you talk of business.
Consistently Good Taste
Making coffee with an old-style machine requires that you have serious knowledge about the coffee maker, the coffee beans, the right amount of time for brewing, etc. And then one day, it turns out right, the next day, it’s just all wrong. Did you add too much coffee or maybe too much water? No one has time for that. With a vending machine, you get the exact same taste every single cup.
There is scientific evidence that coffee enhances productivity. And employees love that. But it’s not even just about feeling energetic.
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 imagine the amount of time it takes to boil water, sip the coffee and then clean up afterwards.
Considering that most workers drink around 3 cups of hot beverages daily, that can sum up to a significant amount of time lost for your business. With a vending machine, coffee can be dispensed in under 20 seconds!
Return on Investment
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 daily coffee deliveries.
Take note that lost time translates to lost revenue, but this doesn’t even stop with direct losses. 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.
Statistics show that 50% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis. That means you shouldn’t only provide the beverage to your employees, but to your clients too. Imagine dull, tasteless coffee served at those business meetings. That sure won’t reflect well on you, don’t you think? You can always improve your company’s image with a simple but satisfying cup of coffee.
