A coffee or café bar can prove to be a wonderful addition to any office. Not only do these areas provide a designated location for workers to fuel up throughout the day, they also encourage workers to take a break to mingle with other employees who they may not see very often. These chance encounters, referred to as “collisions”, have been shown to drastically improve the performance of knowledge workers.
Coffee bars in the workplace are a continuously growing trend. They can easily be incorporated into a break room using extra counter space or an additional table, in an office corridor or even in a reception area. A coffee bar doesn’t have to be fancy; instead, it just needs to be an area that is functional, easy to use and large enough to accommodate more than one person. The essentials include:
Ample Surface Space
Fixings for a Great Cup of Coffee
Tables and Chairs to Support Employees
Both the Square Breakroom Table and Chair Set and the Cafe au Lait Oversized Chairs and Round Standard Table Set are sure to support employees looking to take a break.
Some Type of Coffee Maker
Coffee makers, like this Two Station Commercial Coffee Brewer, can help keep employees happy in the mornings.
