Sitting in traffic on the way to work, nailing a big presentation, listening to really long conference call… to some people, these daily tasks feel totally out of reach without a cup of java. If this sounds like you, you’re definitely not alone! In fact, 46% of workers say they aren’t as productive without coffee. But what makes this hot beverage staple a necessity for many?
The comforting feeling you get from holding a warm cup of coffee and the deliciously energizing nutty taste are just a couple reasons coffee has a special place in our hearts. It also creates a great opportunity to socialize and build camaraderie in the workplace. Next time you reach for your coffee mug, why not invite your colleagues to grab some coffee from the breakroom? Sometimes, the best friendships form over a common love of coffee, so kick back with a cup of Joe and spend some quality time with your officemates!
With $40 billion being spent on coffee each year in the U.S. alone, it’s obvious coffee is not just a popular beverage that energizes us and gives us a chance to catch up with friends, it’s something we look forward to each and every day. What can we say? We love our coffee!
