Office workers and hot drinks

Cheltenham, UK, 12th April 2015: The latest hot drinks survey from the Office Coffee Company reveals an even greater shift in office workers demanding a choice of hot drinks from their employer.

Over the past two years, surveys by the Office Coffee Company have revealed more and more offices are making their hot drinks with a filter machine, coffee pod machine or fresh bean-to-cup coffee machine.

However, the 2016 survey highlights that offices are still not providing for 40% of workers who are unable to have their preferred hot drink at work.

In fact, over 53% of office workers are leaving the office during the working day to purchase a hot drink (up from 40% in the 2015 survey).

“Coffee shop culture has created a nation of connoisseurs who know how they like their coffee” comments Richard Doherty, managing director at the Office Coffee Company. “People have greater expectations with regards to coffee quality; they also want variety and to experience new tastes” he adds.

“Coffee shops and roasters are producing better quality coffee all the time,” notes Luke Thorpe, head of coffee at the Office Coffee Company. “We need to ensure that office workers benefit from the same level of quality and taste experiences they see on the high street.”

The Office Coffee Company, a provider of ethical, beverages and coffee machines for businesses, is on a mission to ensure nobody has a bad coffee at work ever again. With a range of coffee that triggers donations that support the rainforest charity Cool Earth and a monthly subscription service for speciality coffees, the Office Coffee Company also provides next day delivery via its online store.


Notes to Editor
The online survey was distributed April 2016 to office workers based in London and the South West (UK). All 500 respondents worked in offices with 50+ employees.
