Many great things have happened in the coffee industry over the last several decades. Thank goodness that most of those great things have made their way to the office environment. Truth be told, office coffee is no longer the one-dimensional offering it once was. Today’s office coffee service offers a ton of great options by way of both coffee products and the equipment used to provide workers with that morning cup of Joe.
If your current coffee service offers only one or two blends and an outdated pour-over machine, it might be time for you to consider switching services. The modern office coffee service offers all of the latest equipment along with dozens of varieties of coffee products; most also carry other hot and cold beverages as well.
Coffee Flavors and Blends
Coffee is a very personal thing. Moreover, because people are different, their tastes and preferences are different as well. The coffee industry has responded by producing dozens of different flavors and blends to satisfy any palate. Gone are the days when your choices were limited to only the regular, Colombian, and dark roast. Today’s flavors include things such as:
We haven’t even scratched the surface with these five flavors; there are many, many more. Needless to say, there is something for everyone. As far as blends go, creative roasters are coming up with some very unique products. For example, you can choose a premium French roast or a popular donut shop blend.
The biggest change in the coffee service industry since the turn of the 21st century is the introduction of the single cup machine. The single cup machine makes it possible for workers to have a fresh, hot cup of coffee at any point during the day – without having to worry about “stale” coffee that’s been sitting on a burner for four hours. Single cup machines also make it easy for people to enjoy different flavors as they see fit.
The convenience of the single cup machine is probably its biggest selling point. With an older, pour-over machine, someone in the office has to be responsible for cleaning the pots and burners, cleaning the filter basket, and making sure burners are turned off at the end of the day. The single cup machine is virtually carefree. Every worker is responsible for his or her own cup. There are no pots, burners, or filter baskets to worry about.
Of course, the single cup machine would not be the best choice for board meetings and other gatherings where individuals do not have easy access to coffee. Now though, we have thermal brewers that can brew the equivalent of a 12-cup pot and keep it hot for hours on end, with no burners involved. It is yet another way to keep coffee hot and fresh throughout the day.
