How to Choose a Good Coffee Maker for Your Office

As a business owner, knowing the importance of offering the right types of coffee and having the right coffee machine is a big deal. Let’s face it – employees thrive off that great cup of steaming coffee whether it’s first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon to help them get through the rest of the day.

Figuring out how to choose a good coffee maker is somewhat of a science. It takes careful evaluation to make sure the needs of the office are being met. Here are a few things to consider:

  • How many people drink coffee?
  • What types of coffee do employees drink?
  • Does the office need filtered water?
  • Is ground coffee a factor?

While some businesses may think providing coffee for employees is a perk – it’s definitely a must-have. If coffee makes your employees happy, that happiness turns into greater productivity. At the end of the day, it all affects the bottom line.

Depending on the answers to the questions, you may have to invest in a pod solution where the employees brew their own coffee. This could be beneficial for those employees that don’t drink coffee and prefer tea or hot chocolate. A coffee pod system usually accommodates all tastes. In most cases, having a pot of decaf and caffeinated coffee is just fine. The key is having quality coffee and coffeemakers.

Getting the employees involved in making the decision on the office coffeemaker solution is not only smart, it saves time and money. If the employees are brewing and drinking the coffee, shouldn’t they have a say? In this instance, transparency is the name of the game.
