Offering gourmet coffee is one easy and effective way to create a modernized office and breakroom experience. Below are a few approachable ideas for offering a more gourmet coffee experience.
One easy way to build up to a more gourmet coffee program is to offer premium options, like Starbucks® or local craft coffees on Fridays. This weekly luxury is also more scalable as you grow, compared to providing high-end coffees every day of the week.
Expand Your Office Coffee Menu with Premium Creamers
Premium creamers with flavors like French vanilla, hazelnut, and Irish creme are another scalable way to increase the variety and luxuriousness of coffee flavors that you offer without a large investment in different premium coffees.
While you may have visions of a Silicon Valley-like coffee bar for your office, sometimes you have to start small.
Try starting with a bean to cup machine and/or espresso machine. These machines produce very high quality beverages and feature modern digital displays to help create a high-tech coffee bar experience. Even adding a single serve pod or pack-based machine, which is capable of producing deluxe drinks like cappuccinos and lattes, can help create a more upscale coffee bar experience.
Up Your Trendiness with Cold Brew Coffee
Cold brew coffee is a very popular and on-trend beverage both in and out of the office. Offering cold brew coffee alongside standard coffee options can add immediate trendiness and attractiveness to your office amenities. The best news is that cold brew coffee is easy to incorporate into current offerings with options like pre-packaged bottles or in tap-ready ambient containers or nitrogen kegs; just add ice and enjoy.
Open the Door to Trendy Summer Beverages by Installing an Ice Machine
While this may sound overly simple, installing an office ice maker alongside your coffee equipment of choice opens the door to one of summer’s trendiest beverages: iced coffee. In addition to its use in iced coffee and other cold beverages, ice is also perfect for cold brew coffee.
