      New survey reveals top office break frustrations

      • 0

      For most office workers, a coffee break promises five minutes of calm in a busy working day. However, a new survey from DeskDemon and Nestlé Professional® has revealed that sometimes small frustrations can get in the way.

      The kitchen’s a mess (61%), there’s no fresh milk (49%), there’s no clean spoons (35%) and lids are missing (13%) are among some of the biggest complaints.

      However, when it comes to the office coffee break, it really is ‘the little things that count’, with half of workers (49%) saying a great cup of coffee can improve their working day. According to those surveyed, a ‘great’ cup of coffee at work boils down to this: it tastes good (62.4%), it’s made just the way you like it (36.1%), it’s quick and easy to prepare (25.5%) and it’s a brand you can trust (23.5%).

      Lynn Little, Standard Ingredients Lead at Nestlé Professional® says: “As the survey shows, it’s often the smallest things that get in the way of having a great cup of coffee at work.

      “Since launching the world’s first instant coffee in 1938, Nescafé® has always remained at the forefront of innovation, and we’re continually listening to customers to develop new ideas and find new ways to make their lives that little bit easier. The new Nescafé® ‘Simply Better’ tin is the latest in a long line of innovation, and one we believe has the power to completely transform the way offices are able to present, store and serve coffee.

      “The curvy newcomer is at the forefront of ease and convenience, with a ground-breaking ‘sqround’ shape that is easy to hold and pour, a hinged lid to seal in flavour, and a new contemporary look and feel, making the office coffee break ‘simply better’.”

      The new Nescafé® ‘Simply Better’ tin is available now across all the most popular ranges, including Nescafé® Original, Nescafé® Gold Blend® and Nescafé® Azera®.
