This Is How Much Coffee Workers Need To Feel Productive

If there’s one thing that gets most people going in the morning, it’s coffee. The beloved beverage gives us the pep in our step to get our day going and a new survey reveals the coffee habits of the average American worker.

The poll of 2-thousand on-site employees finds more than three-quarters (77%) of coffee drinkers need two or more cups of coffee in order to feel productive at work. And 24% say Mondays are the day they need the most coffee. Beyond productivity, 60% of respondents also use a hot cup of coffee to boost their mood at work.

Some people like to run out and buy coffee at a nearby cafe during the workday, and it takes about 16 minutes to leave their desk, buy a drink and return, according to the survey. But if they do that three times a week, they’ll spend nearly 50 hours a year on coffee runs, which is more than an entire week of work.

The survey also finds:

  • Aside from hot coffee, the drinks people like to sip at work include water (70%), iced coffee (64%), tea (62%), juice (55%) and flavored water (51%).
  • Buying coffee drinks can add up quickly, with the average American buying about 2.5-drinks at the cafe, for $16 a visit. If they do that more than three times a week, they’re looking at over $28-hundred a year.
  • Perks that would encourage on-site employees to work in the office include free beverages (46%), required breaks (45%), free food (45%), on-site gym (43%), an office lounge/social area (42%) and being able to bring pets to work (36%).
