In most offices, the coffee station is the first stop for incoming employees. Before they begin socializing, and long before they begin working, employees auto-pilot their way over to the kitchen, where the sweet scents of java warm their insides. As more people filter in, and grab their morning mochas, the office transforms. What was once a still, dreary room of silence is now alive with a booming buzz of celestial energy.

 

Coffee does amazing things to the work place- it triggers employees’ “on” mode, giving them the mental fuel to fly through their days. Office coffee services have become a staple because of this.
