My experience with coffee to date has been centred around the corporate world of Finance professionals. Long hours, tight deadlines, loads of pressure and lots of coffee. We buy a lot of take-away coffee, some good and some bad, but there isn’t a day that goes buy in the work place where coffee is not consumed en masse.
- Team Meetings = Coffee!
- Board Meetings = Coffee!
- Weekly Catch-up = Coffee!
- Client meetings = Coffee!
Then there is the matter of who has what coffee? I mean you need a list by team of who has what so if you even dare to be polite and offer to do the coffee run, you can read the order to the poor Barista and hope they get it right. "one Flat white, two cappuccino's, one with 2 sugars, the other with none. A piccolo, long black with an extra shot, oh and another flat white, skinny milk please!" phew!
Translating the coffees that come back into what people ordered is another challenge. Based on the scribble on the cup lids; "Sorry Steve, that's my Hot Chocolate".
I'm going to suggest we get a coffee machine at the office, use our own coffee beans and save ourselves from the insanity of the endless coffee run!
Time is up for assignment one. Off for a coffee!
