What does the boss cost the cup of coffee at the office

Wat kost een koffiemachine voor op kantoor met koffiebonen voor op kantoor?

The Dutch are one of the largest coffee consumers in the world, on average about 4 cups of coffee a day. Where we used to be satisfied with a cup of filter coffee, nowadays we only drink fresh bean coffee and the demand for coffee has only increased. But what does this cup of coffee actually cost the boss?


“A third of coffee drinkers consider themselves connoisseurs”

The Nescafe coffee meter has shown that one in three coffee drinkers consider themselves a coffee connoisseur. Unfortunately, the big boss also has to adapt to this. Fortunately, the boss can already lease, rent or buy many devices these days. Even a 24 hour service is available to prevent the entire office from getting into a morning mood. Take a quick look at our coffee machine which fits perfectly in the office! 

But what do we prefer to drink?

A third of all offices use Espresso beans. Espresso beans are beans that preferably have a dark roast profile. A dark burnt profile is distinguished by its dark brown color and glossy, oily surface.

Because there are so many different types of beans, milk, cups and devices, it is difficult to give a precise answer to the key question of what it costs the boss.


Let's start with the machine

Many companies buy expensive devices that quickly go in the direction of 3600 euros. Fortunately, as Hipresso we have a solution for that: Click here to view the Hipresso DP2002. There are also companies that rent the devices, for which you quickly pay 1500 euros per year. However, the rent does include the annual maintenance costs of approximately 600 euros per year. Most companies depreciate their purchased device in 5 years. 

Depending on your device, which coffee beans or type are drunk to make an estimate for the coffee drunk. For example, offices with old employees often drink slightly weaker coffee. Roughly speaking, 9600 cups of coffee are made per machine. This is about 80 kilos of coffee. A kilo costs about 20 euros, which can be used to make 120 cups, about 16 cents per cup. But then there are any additional costs for the milk, sugar, stirrer or paper cup. We spend about 2 cents per cup of coffee on electricity. 

All in all, we arrive at about 39 to 41 cents per cup of coffee.
