This is the season for parties.
From formal affairs on a Friday or Saturday night for the whole party to informal breaks in the conference room, the winter holidays provide many opportunities to celebrate with coworkers and friends. And while individual offices are good about planning their holiday celebrations, the hotel and conference center industry are also very focused on helping their clients and guests celebrate as well. From the hotel coffee supplies that take on a festive appearance by switching cup sleeves to festive red and green designs to specialty coffee and tea that is only available in the winter, many hospitality offerings want to help celebrate.
Even if you are not in charge of an office holiday gathering, or even if you are not part of the hotel, convention, and catering industry, you likely understand the smiles and good will that accompany a great cup of coffee. In fact, 54% of Americans over age 18 drink coffee every day, and the average U.S. coffee drinker consumes 3.1 cups every day. Some would even argue that there is not a better way to say thank you or happy holidays with a friend, a coworker, or a relative than with the gift of a cup of coffee.
Hotel Coffee Supplies Often Change with the Season or the Holiday
Coffee is such an integral part of our country that hospitality experts know that if you present a great tasting cup of coffee you can make a great first impression. This is why when guests check into a hotel, or when home owners welcome a friend or family member into their house a cup of coffee is often the first thing offered.
Consider some of these other facts and figures about the coffee industry in America and the impact that it has on the nation’s economy:
- 62% of respondents said they drank coffee the previous day, according to the 2017 National Coffee Drinking Trends report.
- 46% of U.S. workers say coffee helps them stay productive at work.
- Research indicates that moderate coffee consumption can reduce the risk of developing colorectal cancer by 26%.
- Women who drink four or more cups of coffee per day were 20% less likely to suffer from depression, according to a study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health.
- If you think that you function better after a cup of coffee you may be right. In fact, studies show that 200 mg of caffeine can help people identify words and phrases faster than they could do without coffee.
- In addition to caffeine, one cup of coffee represents a contribution of 1.8 grams, of the recommended intake of 20 to 38 grams of fiber.
Are you hosting a party this weekend? Do you have the coffee ready? You may not be a large conference or hospitality center preparing your hotel coffee supplies for a large group of people, but even a small home party can benefit from attention to detail when it comes to any coffee serving.Share This : by
