Office Coffee Services
Find a business coffee service tailored to your office personnel and locationEver since its discovery as a drink in Ethiopia during the 9th century, coffee has continued to rank high in beverage choice. The number of companies offering coffee services attests to that. Choosing the right coffee service for the office depends on considering several important factors before making your selection.
Begin with location and size. Some companies serve regional locations, while others operate nationally. Certain office coffee vendors restrict service to offices with 20 or more employees. Consider service level, too. Some coffee service companies provide the coffee and equipment, but you must do the managing of orders, cleaning and stocking. Full service companies, on the other hand, provide sales representatives that take care of these needs. Don't forget the brew itself. Coffee brewers come in single cup, pot, metal and glass type models. The coffee ranges from cans, bags, pods and other assorted packages. Likewise, coffee selection ranges from premium brands and specialty coffees to supermarket varieties.
When choosing a company’s coffee service for the office consider the following:
1. The number of employees using the office coffee service.
2. Your allocated budget for coffee services.
3. Whether you want full service or one where your business takes care of everything.
4. The type of coffee and brewer needed.
