As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, hygiene in the workplace has never been more important, especially with the Omicron featuring in the latest update from Downing Street.

Where will everyone sit? How will we keep everyone motivated? How often should we be cleaning? What about our break rooms?

Hold it there! When it comes to minimising contact at your coffee stations, it’s time to take the stress away. Our hot drinks systems were designed with workplace hygiene in mind, so your team can feel comfortable enjoying your favourite drinks. So just how does a coffee vending machine help your risk reduction goals?


The ‘water cooler’ is the epicentre of socialising in the office. It’s where people go to get a break from their screen, meet with colleagues and of course, enjoy a delicious hot drink. With everything that’s happened over the past two years, this social space is more important than ever. However, a kettle isn’t very hygienic.

This is why more offices are opting for a high-quality, low contact and easy to disinfect hot drink machine. Not only does this help reduce the number of points of contact that will have with the facilities, but it also guarantees delicious ‘pick-me-up’ drinks that will help increase your staff’s morale.

So, let’s start with the drinks themselves. When it comes to manufacturing, our UK-based drinks factory team take a hands-off approach, and no, I don’t mean they’re sitting around drinking coffee all day! With our efficient and hygienic factory systems, none of our ingredients are ever touched by our manufacturing team, keeping contact to a minimum.

Not to mention, our specialised production process means that none of our coffee grounds are exposed to oxygen or the open-air, keeping those airborne germs at bay.


So, we know the drinks are safe, what about vending them? You may have noticed that with other coffee station favourites, like the kettle, the number of items you touch can really add up! When it comes to our hot drinks machines, a low-contact brewing experience is on the agenda, with minimal touch points and contactless payment options. In the current climate, sharing is not always caring. With only water running through our machines, cross-contamination between drinks is avoided and our speedy vend times make crowded break room queues a thing of the past!


Workplace hygiene is an essential part of the return to work and keeping staff feeling safe in the office. No piece of equipment is dodging a good clean! The sleek exterior of our hot drinks machines makes your cleaning routine easy – simply wipe thoroughly with a food contact safe disinfectant to protect your staff. And when it comes to fixing, fewer parts definitely equals fewer problems. Our efficient machine technology cuts down on unnecessary visits from external technicians.
