Every company knows that happy staff equals productive staff, and for many workers these days happiness can be reinforced in the form of a great cup of coffee.
Research has found that the average person in the UK drinks 2.5 cups of coffee per day; in the office environment that goes up to 5.5 cups. This can be costly, for both the member of staff and for their employer.
Take the price of a cup of coffee. In most High Street outlets this can be anywhere between £2.40 and £3. That’s a potential bill of £16.50 per worker.
