Be productive in 2017! Buy your team a coffee machine!

Wandering into the city recently we walked past a large number of takeaway coffee outlets. Each one had people lined up waiting for coffee. Almost without exception they were wearing some kind of corporate wear and it begged the question, “who is doing your work while you are here?”

I know the first thing you are going to think here is “of course Lucaffe are telling us to buy a coffee machine for the office because that’s what they do!”

And yes, there is some self interest here, however, there are a number of factors that bear out our statement above:

  1. Takeaway coffee is the new cigarette (as we have all been told). That is true, except, it takes much longer to grab a takeaway coffee than smoke a cigarette.
  1. Most of the time the reason people go out for takeaway coffee is that there is no “real” coffee machine in the office or there is, at best, a dodgy one that breaks down all the time.
  1. At the other end of the spectrum, it may be because the complexity of making a coffee with a grinder and fully manual coffee machine is too difficult for some or they just couldn’t be bothered.
  1. A new coffee machine is a reward. Especially if it makes great coffee simply, easily and quickly.

So what’s it to be? Two or Three minutes in the lunchroom making a coffee or 20 minutes ducking out for a takeaway?
