Coffee machines have been a staple of offices for many years now. A lot of offices will have coffee machines of one type or another, but which is best? Personally I like JURA Machines, and think that the best office coffee machine is the Jura One Touch XS90 which is a fantastic bean to cup machine! It really is top of its class. In this post I will explain why your whole office should be drinking coffee and highlight a few good of the best office coffee machines so you can pick the best option for you! Enjoy!
Why Is Office Coffee Important?
According to studies, 86 percent of full-time employees drink some coffee on a daily basis. With coffee consumption becoming a habit for so many, workplaces can suffer without a proper machine for office use. A lack of quality coffee in the workplace will cause workers to look elsewhere – local food establishments or shops – to fill their need.
As a result, their overall work quality and production can suffer if they’re always leaving the office to grab more coffee. Instead, if a high-quality coffee machine is nearby, workers will remain closer to their desks and even perform better at their daily tasks.
In addition to convenience, office workers will also respond positively with the incentive of good coffee. With so many employers requiring more production from their workers while providing fewer resources, the perks of free, quality office coffee can be a good boost overall morale.
Benefits Of Drinking Coffee
Researchers say that regularly drinking coffee can lead to long-term advantages, as well.
Office coffee can provide a caffeine jolt in the morning or early afternoon, but employers can also boost their workers’ health by providing a quality machine.
Drinking coffee helps:
- Protect against Type 2 diabetes
- Reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease
- Slow down the progress of dementia
- Protect the liver
- Increase heart health
