How to Choose the Right Coffee Product for Your Office

How to Choose the Right Coffee Product for Your OfficeTremendous growth in the office coffee industry has created an environment in which there are a lot of great choices in everything from coffee to tea to specialty water drinks. That is good in the sense that more choices make it easier to satisfy most of the office. Yet it can be somewhat overwhelming for the person responsible for ordering.

We want to make choosing the right office coffee products easier for our customers. To that end, we have put together a list of things to consider. We suggest taking some time to evaluate each item before making any decisions. And remember, no decision is set in stone. You can always change what you order as needed.

1. Product Pricing

It would be disingenuous for us to create a list of this nature and ignore pricing. The reality is that offices have to consider how much they will spend on office coffee. If your company is on a very tight budget, you might want to consider traditional drip brew coffee instead of single serve. Drip brew offers great pricing and a wide range of options.

2. Employee Preferences

Anyone who has ever ordered office coffee before can testify that it is impossible to please everyone. Still, it’s good to get an idea of employee preferences prior to ordering. If a fair majority of the office prefers flavored coffee, it might be worth investing in at least one or two flavors for the sake of morale. You could still purchase regular coffee for those not interested in flavors.

3. Coffee Volume

The amount of coffee your office consumes, which is often determined by your headcount, is another crucial factor. Serving coffee to a lot of people at one time will lead you down a different path on the choice of equipment. As with most things, there are trade-offs on price, coffee quality and product selection.

4. Available Equipment

When you order coffee and water from Galaxie Coffee, you also have to think equipment. The equipment you choose is determined by the amount of coffee and water your office normally consumes. We have single serve machines for offices that prefer to brew one cup of coffee or tea at a time alongside traditional drip brewers that can brew up to 12 cups at a time. We even have large commercial machines for your company café. All our machines are meticulously maintained so as to provide our customers with reliable service day in and day out.

Give Us a Call

We have given you four things to think about when choosing the right coffee products for your office. If you still don’t know what to do, don’t worry. Give us a call and speak with one of our office coffee specialists. We can help you figure out what would be best based on pricing, employee preferences, volume, and your equipment needs. Rest assured there is an ideal solution for your office.

3 Reasons Coffee Should Come from a Coffee Service Provider

3 Reasons Coffee Should Come from a Coffee Service ProviderThe tri-state area is large enough to support office supply companies that want to dabble in coffee and breakroom supplies. In fact, a lot of office supply companies do just that. Yet there are also coffee service providers like Galaxie Coffee offering a full line of beverages along with coffee equipment and breakroom supplies. The question for business owners is which way to go.

It is our firm belief that your coffee should come from a coffee service provider rather than an office supply company. We do not sell printer paper or pens. We do not service copy machines or computers. And if we did, you would probably not trust us to provide what you would consider a tertiary service on our part. So why buy your office coffee and breakroom supplies from a company that specializes in copy paper, pens, and printer ink?

We believe there are many reasons that your office coffee and breakroom supplies should come from a specialist provider like Galaxie Coffee. Here are the top three:

1. Larger Product Selection

Did you know Galaxie Coffee’s product list includes hundreds of different items? We carry one of the most complete selections of beverage and breakroom supplies in the tri-state area, covering everything from coffee and tea to ‘green’ breakroom supplies. You will never find such an extensive inventory at an office supply company.

Office supply companies typically don’t offer the same depth of coffee and breakroom products as office coffee service companies do. More importantly, if you have product questions, you can easily speak to a knowledgeable customer service representative with a single phone call. You won’t spend ten minutes on hold and then find out your question will be answered within 48 hours.

2. Superior Service

A dedicated coffee service provider like Galaxie Coffee offers customers superior service in everything from product delivery to machine maintenance. All it takes is one phone call to our offices to get the beverages and breakroom supplies you need as quickly as possible. And if your coffee machine or water cooler ever breaks down, we will be there quickly to fix or replace it. We can do that because we have a staff of trained technicians and an inventory of replacement equipment just waiting to go.

3. It is All We Do

Finally, office beverages and breakroom supplies are all we do. Companies like Galaxie Coffee are not looking to branch out into a dozen different industries in order to do a lot of things adequately. We don’t like adequate. What we want is to be the best in the business. Office coffee service is what we do, and we do it well.

Here at Galaxie Coffee, we do not dabble in office supplies like paper clips and envelopes. We will never try to fix your broken thermal printer while dropping off a case of coffee and a couple of bottles of water. By the same token, don’t rely on your office supply company to handle your office coffee and breakroom supply requirements.
