The coffee experience is consistently ranked as one of the most important aspects of the office, so it’s vital to get it right. As well as being an expected perk for the modern employee, ensuring your team have access to top-quality coffee on site can help enhance the workplace experience, show your team you value them and can have a myriad of health benefits. But with a world of options to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start.
Collaboration - A strategically-placed coffee machine can lead to increased collaboration and interaction as colleagues catch up over a coffee.
Productivity - As well as caffeine increasing productivity and focus, it has been proven that when people feel their efforts are recognised and acknowledged, such as through the provision of a top-quality coffee offering in the office, they are more likely to work harder.
Wellbeing - Three quarters of office workers believe that a premium, high-quality coffee experience at work shows that their company cares about their wellbeing.
Employee Engagement - With coffee and beverage facilities consistently ranked amongst the most important aspects of the workplace, ensuring your team have access to a top-quality coffee at work is a surefire way of enhancing the office experience and improving engagement.
Health - Coffee is full of antioxidants, and can lessen the effects of Parkinson’s Disease and reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes. If that’s not enough, coffee can lower your risk of heart disease and reduce stress. Perfect for keeping your team happy and healthy!
Creativity - It’s well researched that inspiration and creativity often come most easily when your brain has some downtime, for example when driving, sleeping, or, of course, taking a break to grab a cup of coffee. Those few minutes away from your desk can be vital in helping with creativity, problem solving and productivity.
A strategically placed coffee machine is a fantastic tool for promoting creativity and collaboration
The first thing to consider when choosing your next office coffee machine is the type of coffee machine you need. In the past, coffee pod machines and traditional, tabletop coffee machines have been popular, but as the modern consumer becomes more interested in the coffee they drink, and more aware of their environmental footprint, a new era in coffee service is beginning.
When deciding on the best office coffee machine for you, there are several things to consider.
Be your own barista and use the app to customise your drink
Take your coffee offering to the next level with TopBrewer
Capable of serving up to 400 barista-quality drinks per day, with no-down time needed between drinks, TopBrewer is the perfect choice for busy areas, and was designed for the consumer to be able to take their coffee experience into their own hands. The simple app allows the end user to customise their drink to meet their exact taste, with the ability to choose from two types of coffee, including decaf, and also the ability to opt for a milk alternative, depending on the machine specification chosen. What’s more, it can also dispense luxurious hot chocolate, steaming water for tea, and even chilled still and sparkling water - all from the same sleek swan neck.
The unique under-counter design means that only the sleek swan neck is visible, with the brew unit hidden discretely below in a standard sized cupboard unit. This not only clears clutter from the countertop, but also allows for it to be seamlessly integrated into almost any design to deliver barista-quality coffee “on tap” without compromising the aesthetics of the space. In fact, some TopBrewer customers have chosen to make it the focal point of their design.
TopBrewer was designed to be durable and long-lasting, and its digitally-driven platform allows for remote, over-the-air updates that mean your coffee machine can grow with your business, avoiding the need to replace it every time a new model is released. The market-leading cloud management system, CoffeeCloud, also forms part of the TopBrewer experience. It gives real-time data and insights about your whole TopBrewer fleet, from drink trends to when the machine was last cleaned, and can be set up to send notifications and alerts to the relevant team for issues such as the coffee beans running low. CoffeeCloud also allows our technical team to make remote adjustments to prevent unnecessary visits and keep the coffee flowing.
Streamlined to fit around your space and brand, your TopBrewer can be customised to match your style whilst delivering reliable, barista-quality coffee for your team.
