5 Life-Changing Reasons Why You Should Drink Coffee at Work

November 18, 2020

At the fire station, we wouldn’t be able to go a day without a pot of coffee (or five). You might already be used to starting your morning with a cup of joe at home, but do you also drink coffee at work? 

If you don’t, you’re seriously missing out. If, worse, there’s no coffee maker in your office or workplace, show this list of benefits to your boss and we promise they’ll want to change that.

1. Drinking coffee at work keeps you alert and focused

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant! Because it results in an increase of norepinephrine and dopamine, drinking coffee makes you feel energized, giving you the strength to face all the challenges that your workday is about to throw at you. 

But its magic goes beyond that. Caffeine boosts your memory, reaction time and vigilance, helping to keep you more productive and concentrated. Not a bad set of enhanced skills to show off at work, huh?

2. Let’s be honest: we all need something to look forward to

Even if you love your job (make sure you nod when you show this list to your boss), on some mornings it’s really hard to force yourself to get out of bed, especially if you have a big project to work on or a huge pile of documents on your desk. 

However, knowing that you also have the best coffee waiting for you when you get there is an office perk that can genuinely cheer you up and put you in a better mood.

3. Coffee brings you several health benefits

If anyone’s criticized your addiction, it’s because they know nothing about the health benefits of coffee

This magic liquid is full of antioxidants, highly beneficial compounds that help against cell decline and damage. Overall, coffee reduces your risk of degenerative mental diseases, type 2 diabetes, certain forms of cancer, cirrhosis and even dental cavities. Plus, it helps burn fat, which can make it easier to stay healthy, especially if your job requires you to sit for long hours.

But that’s just if you drink around four cups a day. 

How are you going to do that if you’re not drinking coffee at work as well?

4. A coffee break is a pleasant social experience

Think of that coffee machine as your workplace watering hole. 

Gathering around that precious fresh pot or taking turns to brew one for everyone else gives you an excuse to catch up with your colleagues. 

This will improve your social circle at work and help you get to know those with whom you haven’t spoken a lot just yet. 


5. With our subscription model, drinking coffee at work is incredibly convenient
