Chances are, a large percentage of your employees are drinking coffee every day. According to a 2015 study by the National Coffee Association (NCA), over 78% of Americans drink coffee and over 59% drink coffee every single day. You probably know someone who cannot function in the morning until they have had their cup of Joe.
Research shows that providing office coffee can increase productivity. The caffeine in coffee works as a stimulant that heightens brain activity, gets nutrients flowing, increases athleticism and boosts focus. According to Stephen Braun, a medical writer, and author of Buzz: The Science and Lore of Alcohol and Caffeine, caffeine improves alertness and mental performance when consumed in small doses (between 100 mg and 250 mg, or 1 to 2.5 cups of coffee). The key is moderation. Having 1 to 2.5 cups of coffee can jumpstart your morning when you are tired. But an overconsumption of caffeine can make you jittery and cause other negative side effects. Regular coffee drinkers usually know their limits.
Science has shown how a couple cups of coffee can improve the productivity of your employees. But what about how they feel? Studies have shown that providing coffee is a simple way to improve morale in your office.
