Coffee is so important in the office (see just how important here) that it gets its own category. Coffee is more than just a hot beverage, there are actually many different options (the type of roast, packaging, whole bean vs ground, and flavor choices).
Light roast: An aromatic coffee with citrus notes. Light roasts tend to be more caffeinated.
Medium roast: A balanced coffee with hints of citrus and fruit.
Dark roast: A bold, bittersweet flavor.
Portion packs: These little packs are premeasured with the perfect amount of coffee, making life just a little easier.
Single serve: Pods and cups provide a fresh cup of coffee every time with no measuring and no mess. These are used with single-serve brewers like the Keurig. To view our single serve pods, click here.
• Whole bean vs ground
You can find coffee in pretty much any flavor, even Banana Bread. Make sure to choose something that everyone in the office will enjoy.
The type of brewer you choose for the office is just as important as the type of coffee you choose (listed above). We have everything from commercial to single cup brewers.
These large brewers are essential in large offices. With multiple burners, several pots can be kept ready to serve.
For smaller offices, a single burner brewer is perfect.
These are the type of brewers that the PapaNicholas coffee cups (mentioned in our coffee blog) are used with. These brewers make one cup of coffee at a time, ideal for small or home offices.

Water dispensers provide both hot and cold water for the office. Water filters are also available to purify the office drinking water.
Cups, plates, bowls, and utensils are definitely items to stock the breakroom with.

The breakroom should provide workers with everything they require to help them have a happy and productive work day which often includes coffee, snacks, drinks, dinnerware and the basic cleaning supplies.
