Can you imagine making it through your workday without coffee? No? Well, neither can I. Caffeinated beverages including coffee and tea are also essential for many Augusta employees. Without them, everyone would be less alert, energized, and focused, and that would be a bad thing.
Now, what if the break room had a modern micro-market with delicious fresh food but no coffee? Those same employees would have to leave work during the day to buy their favorite caffeinated beverages.
While that might not sound like an issue for one or two employees, over time, it could become a problem. The couple minutes spent now and then away from work will eventually add up. The result is likely to be a lot of time not working and a loss of overall productivity.
Going off-site for breaks also means that coworkers will be less likely to run into each other in the hall or break room. Fewer interactions equal fewer chances for unplanned conversations and brainstorming.
The solution is to offer coffee service as an add-on to your micro-market or vending machine service.
Not Your Average Cup of Joe
While working with one of our professionals to design your micro-market, be sure to add a high-quality bean-to-cup brewer. These brewers grind the perfect amount of gourmet beans at the push of a button. Once the beans are ground, employees choose from a menu of espressos and coffee-based specialty drinks, and the machine takes over. The easily accessible café-style beverages mean your employees don’t have to leave work for their favorite beverages. They only have to visit the break room.
A Single-Cup Coffee Boost
Or maybe your organization already has a bean-to-cup or single-cup brewer they’d like to use instead with their new micro-market or vending machines. No problem. The bean-to-cup brewer is a great addition to any micro-market. Employees buy their coffee by the cup with their snack or fresh food at the self-checkout kiosk, creating a seamless experience. Vending machines and micro-markets can also be set up to sell k-cups for Augusta companies who have Keurig single-cup brewing equipment.
Access to great-tasting coffee and specialty drinks at work does one more thing. It boosts morale. A break room filled with everyone’s favorite snacks, cold beverages, and hot caffeinated beverages is a perk that employees love. Offer everything at a reduced cost or for free, and your Augusta company will come out on top.
