Used to have a Nespresso machine, they took it away along with the free biscuits. Still angry about it.
There’s filter coffee but it’s BOGGING, I don’t know how they do it so poorly. I bought an Aeropress and a Hario dripper with the intention of taking one into work but I cba and now infuriate my gf by regularly switching which one I prefer at home.
Not fussed about the tea situation though, not going to be precious about them not having Assam or whatever.
I buy my own teabags but contribute towards a communal milk fund
If I’m in the office I’m in today (c. once a week) I bring my own teabags and milk. There’s a vending machine but the tea is absolutely bogging and there is only so much creamichoc one can drink in a day.
I’m typically on 4 mugs of tea a day. Anything less and I get withdrawal headaches. Anything much more and I get twitchy. I’m a sensitive flower.
I don’t drink coffee so my hot drink expenditure is pretty minimal
We have Twinings tea bags (Everyday, English breakfast and earl grey) and also some unbranded ones in a bowl. Coffee is Nespresso commercial pods - we have a few different ones. Semi-skimmed and skimmed milk in the fridge. Sugar if needed.
As soon as I arrive at the office I have a coffee (grey Nespresso pod). Teas at ~10.30, 12ish; and then a couple more times in the afternoon. My colleage and I have a stash of herbal and green teas, sometimes we’ll have one of these, and sometimes I’ll add an afternoon coffee into the mix.
I very rarely buy a posh coffee while at work. I used to go to Wild and Wood every day in the morning but I stopped because spending like a tenner a week on other coffees is a bit silly (for me). When we went through that hot spell I’d get an iced coffee a couple of times a week as a treat. Might start doing that for a nice long black soon.
usually drink water at work.
Have a coffee at home before work.
sometimes get a proper coffee from the one of two coffee shops in the office (stuff they sell is like rocket fuel, but espressos taste rubbish… so Americano it is)
The free stuff they provide is all own brand tea bags and coffee granules. I have a box of Yorkshire tea bags in my locker for the 3 days a year I fancy a tea.
there’s low level grumbling when someone uses the office milk provided for hot drinks (either green or red, no blue ) for their cereal
