Coffee versus Tea: The Big Office Debate

Nov 28 2017

As we approach the festive season, it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas shopping and the seemingly never-ending list of things needing to be done and presents to be bought. But in the office, this can lead to further questions.

Many of us are treated to our favourite hot drinks at work – something which is never more welcome than on those wintery early mornings commonly experienced at this time of year. But from generous coffee gifts to comforting cups of tea, it always sparks the age-old debate – tea or coffee?

Depending on the size of your office, you’re almost always bound to get some people who sit firmly in one camp or the other, then some who switch between the two from their positions sitting pretty on the fence. Of course, being British, most of us love nothing more than to talk about our favourite topics – queueing, the weather, and tea – so with this in mind, it’s no surprise that the debate can often get quite spirited.

It’s pretty clear which side of the coin we are on here at Coffeegram, and the majority of you will probably feel the same way. However, there’s always going to be those stubborn few co-workers who insist that tea is the way forward – you know the ones we’re talking about.

This Christmas, we’ve put together a quick guide to some of our favourite blends, beans and coffee gifts; the perfect way to spoil your fellow coffee lovers and maybe, finally, manage to win over some of the tea drinkers, too.

The One for the Coffee Purists

Dark in colour and strong in taste, our exclusive Södermalm blend is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Deliciously rich, indulgent and best served black, this is a drink that the coffee purists are sure to love.

The One to Win Them Over

For those colleagues who still prefer tea, introduce them to our Shoreditch blend. Light and sweet, this is a delicious, fresh blend featuring notes of lime, biscuit and milk chocolate. Featuring a unique tea-like feel and subtle notes of Earl Grey, this is the perfect introduction to the world of coffee.

The One for Trying Something New

Instead of trying a new blend, why not treat the office to some brand new coffee making equipment? From cafetieres and grinders to the Aeropress and the Hario V60, we have a wide range of equipment ideally suited to the office environment. We can almost smell the freshly roasted beans already!
