Real-World Office Coffee Service Pricing from BuyerZone Buyers
We regularly survey BuyerZone users to ask how their purchases went. We've used their responses to provide a sampling of actual prices paid for office coffee services.
These popular services can be priced in several different ways, including a flat monthly fee based on estimated usage, per case of coffee, or by the cup. One common perk is that the coffee service vendors will often provide brewing equipment for free as long as you're ordering coffee and supplies from them.
The specific type of coffee you choose will have a big impact on your pricing. Most suppliers will offer a variety of brands, ranging from their house brands, which are usually the cheapest, to expensive national brands like Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks. The particular tastes of your coffee drinkers will help you decide if the extra cost of premium coffee is worth it or not.
