The Best Kinds of Coffee Mugs for Your Office

Having enough mugs in the office kitchen is always a must. But do you have enough of the right types of mugs? There are more than ten different kinds to choose from, each of which offers a different experience. Some are good for the more mobile members of the team, others are great for a chat in the canteen. Today, we’ll delve into the best kinds of coffee mugs for a standard office setup, in a bid to find the best combination depending on the needs of your business. 

A Steady Supply of Coffee Mugs in the Office Kitchen

We can’t reiterate enough how important it is to have enough mugs to go around, as well as a few extras for when guests visit the office. A couple of spares are great too in case of breakage. If the cleaning team is busy on other duties during the morning, or the office is at full capacity for a staff meeting, you may end up in a situation where you have to rinse a mug just to get your caffeine fix. To avoid the problem altogether, label mugs as best possible and store spares well away from the communal cupboard to avoid these being used on a day-to-day basis. 

Staff Bringing Their Own Cups to Work

Even before COVID-19 made everyone more health conscious, some people preferred to bring their own mugs to work so as not to expose themselves to potential germs or bugs going around at the office during flu season. The same can be encouraged these days, as it is not only a good idea to mitigate the spread of the virus, but also to help team members feel assured that their mug will be free whenever they need it. Make sure everyone is on the same page about using their own mugs, storing them away from the general supply, so as not to cause unnecessary conflict among the team.

The Best Types of Coffee Mugs

Coffee cups come in a variety of different types, some of the most common being ceramic (the most traditional), stainless steel, stoneware, classic, glass and even travel mugs. Any of these will “do the job” so to speak, but some of them may be better suited to specific team members. A travel mug is ideal for if you’re on the road a lot for meetings during the week. Glass mugs may not be practical in a setting where there is a lot of movement, to avoid breakage and having to replace them regularly. Stainless steel cups are practical, but hardly elegant in an office setting. Look at the needs of the team and decide from there exactly what you want to introduce in the office space.
