Coffee used to be a minor consideration for Facilities Managers, but as coffee culture has boomed, so too has the importance of serving premium, quality coffee in the workplace.  

Coffee is a hugely emotive subject, and is now considered a much valued office perk. Research suggests that serving premium office coffee keeps staff happy and has a positive impact on attracting and retaining the best talent.  Not only that, there have been many reports in the media recently about the potential health benefits of drinking coffee to improve staff wellbeing.

As a result, the coffee experience has become an integral feature of modern workspace design and a central focal point for breakout spaces and informal work environments.

With all of this in mind, Facilities Manager’s have a very influential role to play when it comes to choosing the right coffee solution for the office.
