Working in an office every day can get tiring and routine, so why not mix things up a little and create your own office coffee club? It’s a great way to get together with your workmates and is so much cheaper than heading out to find a good coffee on the street. It’ll keep your bosses happy too because you will be spending more time in the office.
So, how do you do it? Easy. Get a few of your fellow workmates together (15 is an ideal number) and pool your money to buy a coffee machine. Keep it in the office kitchen or another communal space so it is easy to access and you are on your way to coffee heaven.
When it comes to choosing the right coffee machine, you need to consider a couple of things – cost, convenience and coffee. You want something that is good value for money, that is easy to use and look after, but doesn’t compromise on the quality or enjoyment of the coffee.
There are heaps of machines on the market, but Nespresso makes some great ones which are low maintenance and competitively priced. The Nespr Citiz Aeroccino C120 US Nespre is a higher end machine that not only lets you choose your favourite flavour, but because it has an inbuilt milk frother with different attachments, you can also make a variety of coffee styles, such as lattes or cappacinos.
Once you’ve purchased your Nespresso machine, you need to get the correct coffee pods. Everyone can buy their own pods, or you can pool some more money together. Either way, this is where the real benefit of Nespresso comes in: FLAVOURS! There are heaps of flavours to try meaning you’ll never get bored. Here is a list of flavours currently available:
- Decaffeinato Intenso
- Vivalto Lungo
- Finezzo Lungo
- Decaffeinato Lungo
Looking after your new coffee machine is quite simple if you get a Nespresso – all you need to do is fill the water jug and empty the capsule collection when it is full. As the Nespresso doesn’t contain a grinder, there’s no mess and no fuss. That means you can get on with enjoying your coffee with your new found coffee mates.
Once you are set up and frothing away, a single cup of coffee costs less than a quarter of the cost of a store bought coffee. The return on your initial investment can be reached in only a few weeks depending on your current caffeine addiction. What are you waiting for? Gra your new coffee club buddies, pick someone to be the barista and start enjoying a Rsitretto or Capriccio or Finezzo Lungo today. It’s fun and it’s easy and is sure to add something a bit special to an otherwise routine work day.
