As anyone who has been to a chain or gourmet coffee house would likely point out, there is something special about a great cup of coffee. This is evidenced by the fact Americans are prepared to pay 5 or 6 dollars for a Cappuccino or a Latte. In fact, specialty coffee demand has skyrocketed an estimated 20 percent of late according to a recent report from the National Coffee Association.
In spite of the surging demand and growing expectations in this regard, a number of people who have spent time in an office, hotel or workplace point out typical refreshments fall short of the public's anticipation. Specialty coffee enthusiasts across the nation appear to be ready for an overhaul in this realm.
As a general rule, coffee drinkers view coffee as the fuel responsible for keeping them going; at the same time, many consider it the foundation of a productive workforce. Certain studies link coffee to increased productivity in the workplace as long as those on the receiving end are satisfied with the available options. Conversely, most companies offer only instant, drip or pod coffee. This often leaves employees and guests less than content and searching elsewhere for their daily caffeine fixes. For employers, the cost of related missed time can potentially add up; not to mention, those in the hospitality industry could face poor reviews as a result.
One company has taken a stance to change the industry. Florida-based Busy Bean Coffee is bringing the Coffee House taste directly to the public. Since 2014, Busy Bean Coffee has been partnering with businesses to change the way they look at their workplace and hospitality services.
“We wanted to bring more than just coffee to offices; we wanted to bring them an experience,” said Travis Estes, Busy Bean’s Co-Founder and Managing Director.
Busy Bean Coffee has been receiving positive reviews from businesses. Those partnering with Busy Bean Coffee are also generating a buzz among employees and customers. Employers point to a rise in productivity, and businesses say they are consistently receiving four and five-star Google reviews mentioning the coffee.

Among the selection available through Busy Bean Coffee are Cappuccinos, Cafe Lattes, Cafe Mochas and Espressos.
