We’re all dreaming of the return to the office, whatever that may look like. While working from home has its perks, there’s nothing like the community you experience in an office.

The key to an amazing office community? Worker satisfaction. When your employees feel cared for and appreciated, they are happier and more productive.

One of the best ways to show your employees that you appreciate them is by providing premium coffee in the office at all times. Corporate Essentials can help by providing the coffee for you.

Let’s break down why you need an office coffee service for a safe and comfortable space. We’ll also go over how to choose the right coffee distributor for your office.

Why You Need an Office Coffee Service

Coffee is proven to make people more productive. Not only that, but most people rely on their daily cups of caffeine. If you don’t have an office coffee service, your employees will waste time going for coffee runs throughout the workday.

It may seem like a small gesture, but adding a coffee machine to your break room will go a long way with your employees. They’ll feel appreciated by you, and they will also bond with each other over their coffee on breaks, which will boost company morale.

How to Choose an Office Coffee Supplier

When it comes to office coffee suppliers, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to the perks you should offer. The first thing you should do is assess your employees’ needs. Are most of them coffee drinkers? How many cups do they drink a day? Do they have a preferred type of coffee?

Next, what kind of equipment should you get? You want a coffee machine that will work for your office size so the coffee can flow all day. At Corporate Essentials, we can outfit breakrooms in New York City and New Jersey with the right style of coffee machine for your needs.

Four Types of Coffee Machines

We offer four different types of machines to choose from based on your office size and employees’ preferences.

  • Totally touchless brewing made for today’s office environment. TopBrewer is a sleek, European-designed, app-driven coffee brewer that makes a range of premium, barista-style coffee drinks and traditional brewed coffee.
  • Single-cup machine. If you want to offer your employees variety and the freedom to choose what brand and type of roast they drink, this is the best option.
  • Traditional coffee brewer. We offer leading brands of coffee machines, and our technicians can teach your employees how to use them. Traditional coffee brewers make a high-quality cup, so if your employees are coffee connoisseurs, this is the route for you.
  • Espresso machines that bring luxury into the office. Our offerings make a smooth and delicious espresso drink, so your employees will never need to leave the office for their afternoon pick-me-up again.

Choosing Your Coffee

Now that you’ve chosen your coffee machine, you can pick what type of coffee you want to serve. Do you need whole bean coffee? Do you want to use a local brand? If you go with a single-cup brewer, what brands and flavors do you want to offer?

When you’re looking into a coffee provider, make sure they have plenty of options when it comes to the actual coffee. Your employees will appreciate a variety of choices instead of drinking the same coffee every day.

At Corporate Essentials, we offer both big national brands and locally roasted coffee. Whether it’s whole bean coffee, single-cup pods, or even cold brew, we can provide everything you need to make it simple for you.

Coffee Accessories and Supplies

After you choose the right type of coffee maker and coffee for your office, be sure you choose a provider that also offers all the coffee accessories and supplies you need.

Look for a coffee service provider that also delivers extras like flavored syrups, sugar, creamer, stirrers, filters, cups, and other breakroom supplies you need. At Corporate Essentials, we provide a full pantry service, including delicious grab-and-go snacks and paper goods.

When it comes to clean-up, we offer multiple ways to recycle coffee pods. We also have everything you need to keep your coffee station organized.

Sanitization Services

In the age of COVID-19, keeping your office sanitary is important if you want your employees to feel safe working together again. Ask your office coffee provider how they can help you stay safe.

For example, in addition to our touchless technology to reduce to spread of germs around the coffee maker, we also offer innovative sanitization products to create a safer breakroom and office environment. From plug-in air purification systems to PPE and disinfectants, we’ve got you covered.

Coffee Service Contracts

The final thing you need to check before choosing an office coffee provider is the contract options. Make sure you like the length and terms of the contract. If this is your first time using a coffee provider, ask for a shorter contract so you can make sure it’s a good fit.

You should also feel comfortable enough with the customer service reps to ask any questions or raise concerns.

At Corporate Essentials, we offer comprehensive break room assessments and free coffee tastings at your office before you make any decisions. We’re dedicated to top-tier customer service. It’s our passion to make your job easier and keep your employees happy by making all their coffee dreams come true.

Caffeinated Employees are Happy Employees

Surprising your employees with a brand-new, high-quality coffee system will be the perfect way to welcome them back to the office and create a destination where they are excited to come back to. Show them that you missed the office community with this gesture of appreciation.

Using an office coffee service like Corporate Essentials will keep your employees caffeinated and happy without adding more work for you. Let us do everything so you can focus on your work.
