Does Anyone Want Coffee?
No gathering is complete without offering coffee to the guests. Whether it’s a casual social and you’ve invited close family and friends, or if you’re hosting a meeting for your team or clients, coffee is one of the best beverages for social interactions.
Of course, unfortunately not everyone wants coffee. But there are a few things to consider before simply offering it to everyone:
Does your company serve it?
If your company regularly serves coffee to visitors in the office, then you should do the same.
What type of coffee is it?
If you plan on serving coffee to your guests, make sure you serve a variety of coffee types. Here are some of the most popular:
- Espresso – strong, dark, and creamy
- Cappuccino – made with espresso, steamed milk, and foam
- Latte – an espresso-based beverage made with steamed milk
- Filter coffee – made by filtering hot water through coffee grounds
- Decaf coffee – for those who don’t want caffeine
Do any guests have special requests?
Have guests that require special requirements? Consider stocking milk alternatives such as almond milk or oat milk and make sure to ask guests if they would like it decaf.
Do you serve any snacks?
Serving snacks with coffee is also a great way to make sure everyone is well-fed and comfortable. Here are some popular snacks to consider:
Whether you serve coffee or not, offering refreshments for guests is a great way to make anyone feel welcome. It’s also a great way to make sure everyone is taken care of, no matter their preferences.
So if you’ve got a gathering coming up, don’t forget to think about offering coffee (and snacks) to your guests!
