5 Questions to Ask Potential Colorado Office Coffee Suppliers

Thursday, 25 March 2021 10:23

There's nothing that compares to the first sip of coffee in the morning. For many people, it's the first thing they look forward to when they wake up. As a business owner or office manager, you want to keep your employees happy (and healthy.) Offering complimentary coffee at work is a great way to do exactly that. And that's not the only benefit your business stands to gain. Coffee at work helps boost productivity, improve focus, and prevent fatigue. But before you go working with the first Colorado office coffee suppliers that pop up on Google, there are a few questions you need to ask first to separate a great coffee supplier from a good supplier.

1. Do you offer free taste testings?

It doesn’t matter how fancy a coffee supplier’s website is or how low their price point is. That's all pointless if they sell crappy coffee. The best office coffee suppliers will always offer free taste testing sessions so you can try the coffee before you buy it.

2. How many different brands of coffee do you carry?

It's always nice to work with a supplier who carries a variety of coffee brands. For instance, here at Redcup Beverage Service, we’re proud to sell a variety of local Colorado coffee brands including:

  • Novo Coffee - Novo Coffee brings distinctive and delicious coffees to Colorado communities by roasting green coffee beans in their vintage Vittoria machines.
  • Pablo’s Coffee - Considered by many to be “the best cup of coffee they’ve ever had.” Schedule a blind taste testing to see if you agree!
  • Corvus Coffee Roasters - A small-batch roaster providing sweet but robust coffee through sustainable farming practices.

3. What kind of coffee and beverage supplies do you sell?

Not everyone enjoys basic black coffee. To really cater to your employees’ coffee habits, it can be helpful to offer things like Nitro cold brew on tap, an espresso machine to make lattes and cappuccinos, or a Keurig for single-serve cups.

4. What does your customer service look like?

This is an important question to ask any supplier you work with. Strong customer service values ensure you're working with a reputable business that you can rely on. At Redcup, we are passionate about supporting local Colorado businesses and staying involved within our community through outreach efforts, fundraising events, and volunteering initiatives. And when you give us a call, you’ll be able to speak with a company rep quickly without having to deal with a complex automated calling system.

5. What other office beverages do you offer?

Many office coffee suppliers will have additional offerings outside of just coffee. For example, here at Redcup Beverage, we can also stock your office with water, tea, and kombucha on tap so that all of your employees have easy access to the beverages they love most.
