It’s a well known fact that the UK is a nation of tea drinkers.
According to Wikipedia “The British are one of the largest tea consumers in the world, with each person consuming on average 1.9 kg per year…..[and] tea breaks are an essential part of the working day."
Here at Office Barista we know that 40% of hot drinks consumed in the office are tea, so when you call us to say you are thinking about getting a new coffee machine for your office, we understand that what you really want is to offer staff and visitors better hot drinks - not just coffee.
We alway gently suggest that you consider a hot drinks machine - a tea AND coffee machine that will also serve hot chocolate for when your team feel like a real treat!
A tea machine solves many problems for the tea drinkers in your office - from being too busy to make a round of tea for everyone, to arguments over which tea bags taste best, to being served tea that is stale or just too weak. With a tea machine, there will be a range of teas on offer, in single-serve pods or sachets that keep the tea leaves fresh, and the machine will make sure that every cuppa is perfectly brewed.
Luckily for you, we stock the two best-selling ranges of tea machines for the Irish workplace - and they both offer a fantastic range of coffees too, so everyone gets a high quality hot drink to suit.
Flavia machines are the clear market leader for office tea machines. All of Flavia’s machines offer a range of 9 different Bright Tea Company teas. There are 3 different breakfast teas - including a strong and a decaf - as well as Earl Grey, Lemon, Raspberry, Peppermint and Green Teas. With Yorkshire Tea now on offer alongside the Bright Tea Company range there really is a tea to suit all tastes. Flavia hasn’t forgotten the coffee drinkers either, offering a similarly broad range of coffees with a range of origins and roasts, and latte, cappuccino, decaf and flavoured options. Read more about how the Flavia drinks machines brew a perfect cuppa, or check out the Flavia C500.
The Keurig coffee pod machines are compact and budget-friendly, and serve Twinings Teas, including Keurig K Cups such as English Breakfast Tea, Green Tea and Earl Grey. They also serve a full range of Starbucks and Green Mountain Coffees.
