The way in which people drink coffee has changed. You can see those changes mainly at work, where coffee has become an integral part of workplace culture. Nowadays it’s common that for employees the phrase „let’s have a cup of coffee” has come to mean „let’s have a conversation”. Why is this happening?
Take downtime to improve creativity
Coffee break is a moment of downtime when workmates can meet together and talk about anything they want. This is crucial in the context of coping with stress in the workplace. These informal meetings over a cup of coffee can help to encourage creativity through sharing ideas or exchange the views. Taking part in coffee break regulary let employees create social groups, which have positive influence on productivity.
All changes taking place in the world of coffee drinkers, especially in the workplace, allowed us to create an app that makes it easier to gather all workmates on coffee break. Meet #Coffee!
How it works ”step by step”
