Free Coffee for Your Office This Month
This month, Roanoke’s Quality Coffee Company is among the first companies in the United States to introduce a groundbreaking new eco-friendly single cup coffee system for offices and you can have coffee free for your office through October.
The system features Reunion Island coffee in biodegradable pod format. “More and more employers have realized that offering a gourmet office coffee program is an inexpensive perk that goes a long way with employees,” says QCC president David Booth. He says that the typical office coffee set-up has slowly evolved from glass pot systems to innovative single cup coffeemakers that offer variety and convenience.
For October, Quality Coffee Company is offering businesses with 30 or more employees the opportunity to try the Reunion Island program in their offices with no cost or obligation. For more information, call Mike Dowdy at (540) 982-0941 or email here.
The most popular single cup systems are not without drawbacks, though. “Most single cup coffee systems use expensive individual portions that are not biodegradable or recyclable,” Booth explains. “Corporations today are looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint and save money at the same time—pods are the logical solution.”
Booth also notes that Reunion Island also leads the coffee industry with environmental initiatives including using 100 percent clean electricity from wind and other sources to power their plant. While responsible corporations are choosing the pods to reduce waste, employees are reaping the benefits with the menu of over two dozen coffees and teas, including Fair Trade and organic and flavored coffees.
