More than just a cup of coffee: Boost morale with a better break room


This post is sponsored by Flavia.

Your team members are returning from almost two years of having whatever kind of beverage they want on-demand while working at home. Welcome them back to the office with a better break room that’s equipped to meet almost any preference.

Whether it’s a rich hot chocolate to ease the chill of the morning commute or an iced matcha latte to power through that late afternoon meeting, offering a better beverage experience is one way to do something nice for employees who are returning to the office.

Improve morale

Multiple options and easy personalization are morale boosters that make the transition away from work-from-home a little easier. Little touches like this can contribute to staffers’ feeling appreciated, which can contribute to loyalty – an important consideration amid the Great Resignation.

While better beverage service isn’t a retention strategy on its own, it is an affordable amenity that matters to many employees. Roughly 80% of US adults consume caffeine every day, according to US government data. That means most of your officemates look to coffee and tea  for a boost of energy during the workday.

Make it personal

The Flavia Creation 600 enables you to offer your co-workers a range of options, including famous brands and traditional flavors such as:

  • Dove Hot Chocolate
  • Bright Tea Co. Earl Grey, green and other teas
  • Starbucks, Alterra & Peet’s roasts and blends
  • Lavazza Classico and Intenso coffees

All drinks can be brewed hot or over ice, and the addition of milk foam – either from a milk froth packet or fresh dairy milk or a non-dairy alternative — can turn any coffee or tea into a creamy latte. Flavia’s patented brewing process ensures no cross-over in flavor from one drink to the next.

Encourage creativity

The brewing system empowers every employee to become their own barista. Each user can select the beverage and options they want and customize the size and strength with just a few taps on the touch screen or via the Tap n Brew app on their own smartphone.

You can even level-up office engagement with contests for the most creative flavor combos, challenging employees to develop their own blends. Hold tastings during lunchtime to select a winner. Or get into the holiday spirit with special recipes for seasonal favorites like pumpkin spice lattes or peppermint hot chocolate. These activities build camaraderie, encourage creativity and infuse a little fun into the workday.
