If you manage an office, you know how important coffee is to many of your employees. Without a steady supply of it, they're probably grouchy and unproductive! If you want to keep them content and at-ease as they go through their workday, then hiring a coffee service to serve the office is a smart choice. But what coffee service should you hire? Here are a few things to consider as you make your choice.
What kind of coffee does the service provide?
Some coffee services provide one or two standard types of coffee, perhaps with standard creamer and some sugar to add. Other coffee services provide fancier options, such as single-origin coffees and specialty roasts. You'll pay more for the second type of coffee service, but if this is the type of coffee your office workers prefer, then it's worth paying more. If you are unsure about what type of coffee your employees will prefer, just ask them. Send out a survey with a few simple questions such as "what kind of coffee do you drink on a daily basis" and "how important is it to you, on a scale from one to ten, that your coffee comes from a single origin?" This can help you determine the right choice for your workers.
Will equipment be left in your office?
Some coffee services deliver the coffee, pre-made, to the office. It may be in cups already, or it might be in some type of dispenser. Other coffee services bring equipment to your office. They might drop off an espresso machine or a pod-style coffee maker, for instance. If you have space for the equipment, this can be a really good choice, since it means that everyone can enjoy fresh coffee throughout the day. If you don't have any extra space, though, you may want a service that drops off the coffee already-made and in cups.
How does the service charge you?
Some coffee services will analyze your needs, get a general idea of how much coffee you will utilize, and then decide how much to charge you monthly. Maybe you'll consume a little more coffee some months and a little less other months, but you'll pay the same amount every month. Other coffee services bill you per cup, or, if you get entire dispensers or carafes delivered, they'll bill you by the dispenser. Either approach is fine; it's all about what you prefer.
If you take the time to think through the questions and options discussed above, you will have a better idea of which coffee service works best for you.
Hi there, my name is Marcy Dillinger. Welcome to my site about using spices in your recipes. When I was in college, I only had salt and pepper on hand to season my meals. The result was a rather bland culinary experience. Since then, I have filled my cupboards with spices from all around the world. I use a blend of spices in each meal I create to give the meat, produce and other ingredients amazing flavor profiles. I will use this site to talk about the different ways you all can use spices to cook your favorite meals. Please come by again soon.
