Coffee. When it’s done right, it can really speed things up. But when it’s done wrong, it can really slow you down. And not just you – your entire workplace.
Coffee is a central part of many peoples’ days. And offering it in the workplace can offer some serious benefits. But your workplace coffee set up can be a major headache. Especially when you’re the one that has to deal with it.
This shouldn’t a be a reason to miss out on great coffee though. With a few tweaks to how you organise coffee in your workplace, you can make the entire experience easier for the person organising it, the people drinking it, and the person paying for it.
Coffee is one person’s job, but everyone’s problem
Office coffee is something many workplaces in Melbourne have embraced, indeed many employees have come to expect. Most businesses think of it as an easy and affordable way to put a smile on their staff’s faces. Unfortunately, achieving great coffee isn’t quite so straight forward.
How often have you experienced:
- Untimely machine breakdown or malfunction?
- Beans or tea bags running out, but no one has thought to order more?
- Being unable to offer a client the coffee of their choice?
- Constant complaining about the quality or taste of your workplace coffee?
Melbournians sure can be fussy about their coffee and how often they get it. But it’s more than that. What happens when you run out of the boss’s caramel syrup? When someone takes the last teabag right before an important meeting? When the whole thing breaks down, the entire office is in caffeine withdrawal, and the repairman can’t come until next week?
That last one might be a bit of an exaggeration, but these are real issues that someone at your workplace has to deal with. Usually, it’s an office manager or a facility manger – someone who already has a huge workload.
So, are they going to prioritise coffee? Probably not. What was once one person’s problem soon becomes a problem for the whole office.
Can you really make everyone happy? Yes!
Simply put, everybody wants the luxury of great coffee. But no one wants to deal with organising it. How did something so simple become such a hassle? Is it even worth it?
Of course! It’s coffee!
Workplace coffee can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. The good news is that with a few tweaks of your coffee management, you can enjoy all the coffee highs without the organisational lows.
If you want to simplify and improve the coffee experience in your workplace, there’s a few changes you can make:
- Be picky about your coffee blend – choose one that your workplace likes best
- Ensure your machine can make a wide range of coffees, to keep everyone satisfied
- Organise on-call servicing
- Set up refills on demand so you’re never without the essentials
- Choose an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain machine that’s sure to impress anyone that uses it
Small changes like these can make a huge difference. Complaints decrease, moods improve – coffee suddenly goes from a constant hassle to something you don’t even notice.
Simplify your workplace coffee with tailored options
You might be thinking that these changes are easier said than done – they might even sound a little farfetched. But really, each of these should be standard service from your supplier. (Or should be what you look for, if you’re searching for one).
Each workplace is different, and each employee has difference tastes. It only makes sense that your coffee is tailored to your taste and your needs – now, and as they change.
Your receptionist loves chai? You need more coffee in Winter than in Summer? Multiple client meetings mean you need a machine in working order every single day? When you have a flexible package and a knowledgeable provider, you end up with a hassle-free coffee experience that allows you to:
- Cater to all tastes
- Only pay for what you use
- Keep machine downtime to a minimum
- Take the hard work out of coffee management
At the end of the day, your workplace coffee experience is an investment – so, you might as well make it a good one!
