Java, joe, bean juice, brew. Coffee has a lot of names. But you rarely hear it called a tool. Something that actually helps you get your job done.

Providing employees with coffee is relatively inexpensive. And compared to other cheap perks, coffee offers a bevy of benefits. We’ll detail the top five benefits of coffee in the workplace below. And, for the sake of impartiality, we’ll talk about possible disadvantages too.


Coffee and Productivity?

A 2010 study from MIT, also demonstrated the positive effects coffee, and more specifically, coffee breaks can have. This study showed that employees who take coffee breaks together, demonstrate an overall improvement in their productivity.

These coffee breaks are an opportunity for employees to meet and share stories and information. And this information includes both personal and work-related experiences. So, worry not when you see a group of employees huddled around the coffee pot. Chances are it’s helping your organization.
