Coffee culture continues to grow at rapid pace. Enjoying fresh bean coffee is as much about the overall experience as it is the beverage itself. An authentic cup of coffee has the power to revitalise, motivate and connect us, and the coffee shop has always been a popular environment to enjoy it in.
Coinadrink Limited the vending machine company has seen coffee culture hit the workplace in recent years. And as your workforce mull over the prospect of returning to their natural working environment, enticing them with coffee shop quality is a valuable option.
How can you do this? It’s firstly a good idea to understand what it is that makes the coffee shop environment so successful.
More than just a coffee shop.
From the moment you walk in, you immediately get a sense of traditional coffee shop culture that is captured within four walls. The smell of fresh bean coffee, the perception of relaxation from friends and family meeting up, and the recognition of productivity from busy workers deliberately choosing this environment in which to operate.
The coffee shop is the place to be for everyone. It’s no surprise that this industry is worth an estimated £10bn to our country.
But it will have its flaws in a post-Covid world. The devastating virus won’t disappear quality and the high street, and coffee shop, look set to be environments that have to make the biggest transformation to welcome customers back safely.
We have no doubts that this environment will be able to do just that, but that doesn’t mean your team will be comfortable heading to the hustle and bustle of the high street anytime soon.
Now could be a great time to look at bringing the coffee shop experience into your workplace.
