Real Benefits

Why your staff will appreciate the Espresso Fresco Office coffee service

As the saying goes “Hard work and long hours are motivated by dedication and fueled by coffee”, but most people who like good coffee at work are beginning to realise just how much it costs them both in terms of money and time.

The average coffee drinker picks up their favourite cappuccino or latte on their way into work and then pops down to the local café twice more during the day for another caffeine fix. At an average price of $4, those three cups per day amount to a massive $3,000 per year! And the cost will only continue to rise.

More and more employers are providing an in-house coffee machine for the staff, but in the past this came with problems. Coffee Machines require regular maintenance, but it was always difficult to rely on staff members to do this and consequently the coffee machines inevitably broke down, becoming more of a nuisance for management.

The advent of services such as the "Espresso fresco coffee service" has solved these problems. The Service supplies the machine, all consumables except fresh milk and full maintenance. Staff can have fresh, high quality coffee available at all times with no management concerns about supplies, maintenance or breakdowns.

You supply the motivation and we’ll supply the fuel.

For nine years, both Staff and Management have been enjoying the benefits of Espresso Fresco Corporate Coffee Solutions. Contact us today.

Why Employers love the Espresso Fresco Office Coffee Service

The high cost of coffee is not limited to those who buy it

In offices today the "smoko break", which used to cost employers substantially in terms of time lost and productivity is rapidly being replaced by the "coffee break" . Many employees who are coffee lovers shun the instant coffee usually provided by the employer and now nip down several times a day to the local café for a quick brew. But the "quick brew" is often not so quick.

If each coffee drinker "grabs a quick brew" three times per day and it takes an average of 20 minutes (by the time they wait in line, chat to co-workers etc) the cost to the employer is one hour per day per employee. At an average salary plus on-costs of, say, $50 per hour*, this is a direct cost to the employer of around $12,000 per year per employee.

This is a cost which rarely appears on the books but many employers have now realised just how real it is.

The obvious answer is to provide an "in office" facility for café style coffees to replace the old instant coffee and so many businesses bought automatic coffee machines. However, in the past this has had its problems for the simple reason that all automatic coffee machines require regular and thorough servicing and it is difficult if not impossible to find staff members prepared to do it and consequently the machines either break down or the quality of the coffee deteriorates.

In addition to this, many businesses do not want to commit to either a capital cost nor an extensive lease period in the current climate.

The advent of services such as the "Espresso fresco coffee service" has solved all of these problems and made it very simple and cost effective for employers to provide such an "in office" facility for providing premium quality coffee to their staff at a total cost of around $1 per cup!

Consequently, with no capital expenditure nor long term commitment, employers are reducing the cost of "coffee breaks" from around $12,000 to around $720 per annum per employee ……….and their staff thank them for it!

over 5 years. The machine is heavily used by our large staff. The coffee
blend supplied is very popular and all staff like the flavour. Staff no longer
need to leave the office for a good cup of coffee. John is always pleasant,
friendly and professional. He really looks after us and nothing is too much
trouble for him."

"Our staff work all hours and really appreciate having good coffee available
at any time. It saves them a great deal of time and money. We have four of
their machines and for the eight years we have had the service the team
at Espresso Fresco have always done whatever was needed to make sure
that we have no hassles with the machine or supplies."

"About nine years ago we decided to provide good coffee to the patrons of our gaming room. We elected to give Espresso Fresco a try and, five years later, we are glad we did. Apart from the fact that they take care of supplies, the maintenance service they provide is really important to us. Our customers operate the machine themselves and it could cause real problems but John and Rob make sure that we have no such problems."
