The office coffee service that makes the most sense for your office really varies by your needs and desires. Let’s take a quick look at the key advantages of each type of brewing system.

  • A Large number of employees are served faster with one brew. This also works great for serving at employee gatherings or scheduled meetings.
  • After brewing into an airpot, coffee is conveniently standing by, ready to go for the individual need.
