What You Should Know About Machines This Year
For lots of people, a nice cup of coffee is the best way to kickstart a brand new working day. 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..
Workers love coffee in the morning, and fast. A vending machine eliminates the need to grind beans, prep the machine, brew the coffee or clean the machine. It’s all instant! Seconds always count, especially when you talk of business.
Consistently Good Taste
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. Was there too much coffee or too much water in the mixture? No one has all day figuring that out. With a vending machine, you get the exact same taste every single cup.
Science has proven that coffee boosts productivity. And employees love that. But it’s not even just about the added energy.
Everyday, employees leave their desks for at least 7 – 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee. With a vending machine on site, it will take them much less time to get back to work. Just imagine the time spent to boil water, make the coffee, drink it and then wash up.
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!
Return on Investment (ROI)
This point is usually overlooked, but one that business owners or managers should not ignore. Imagine how much time is saved if an employee didn’t have to cross the street to get coffee at Starbucks. 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. A coffee vending machine in your office is actually not a cost but an investment. 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 help the deal, don’t you think? A nice cup of coffee would be a simple but pleasant way to improve the image of your company.
