Why is Office Coffee So Bad? - NO HARM DONE
It's been a bitter sweet couple of years, but WFH has been fantastic for many of us. Now we return to post-COVID normality and we’re all wondering what was normal.
Are my suit pants tighter?
Was my chair always this uncomfortable?
Will my cat be lonely?
Why does this coffee taste so bad?!
Don’t worry we’ve got your back, with the coffee at least!
There’s this misconception that office coffee needs to be quick, and that quick coffees taste bad. Well, you’re wrong. Instant coffee’s given all coffee a bad rep; not only is it actually slower to make, it cuts corners which destroy that roasted bean goodness and leave you with a bland cup of brown.
Expertly roasted beans, packed fresh into little pods and brewed to perfection actually takes less than 10 seconds (and has a crema to swoon over). I dare you to boil a kettle that quickly.
Dump the instant, and give one of these a go:

6. The one that’s come from the runway
If Nespresso was a thing back in the 70s, we imagine that is what their machines would have looked like. It’s a good thing retro is back baby - this one’s hot off the press.
