Making Hot Drinks Wastes Working Time

How long do your workers take making tea and coffee?

According to Lauren Davidson from The Telegraph: A survey in 2014 indicated that British workers spend numerous days a year not working at all.

British workers waste 4 days of paid working time a year on tea and coffee breaks.

Although making hot drinks takes time, chatting with work colleagues is the bigger time waster.

A number of non-work related activities were highlighted in the survey, although many workers probably do several of these non-productive things at the same time.

Another thing highlighted is that younger workers wasted more time than older workers.

Hot drink timewasting

On the face of it, aside from extreme surveillance, there seems to be little you can do about all this time-wasting.

However, as already mentioned, some of these activities happen at the same time, it’s probably safe to assume that a fair amount of “chat” probably goes hand in hand with tea and coffee making.

There’s obviously no problem at all during “official” breaks, but can become a problem if refreshment breaks are taken ad hoc.
Someone turns up and puts on the kettle, a few minutes later another thirsty individual appears, starts chatting, then someone else… And so it goes on.

One possible answer to this problem would be to shorten the time taken to make hot drinks.

A hot drinks vending machine would have an immediate impact on this aspect of time-wasting.

Traditional method of making a hot drink:

  • Wash cup/spoon from previous use 30 secs
  • Fill kettle 10 secs
  • Add ingredients to cup 10 -20 secs
  • Wait for kettle to boil 2 -3 mins
  • Add hot water to cup 5 secs
  • Add milk if required 10 secs
  • Stir 5 secs

Total: 3 mins plus

Remember that the chatting starts at the drink making location.
A 3 minute wait for drinks can easily turn into a 15 – 20 minute chat!

Typical hot drinks vending machine:

  • Press button 1 sec
  • Wait for 15 secs
  • Collect cup from machine 2 secs

Total: less than 20 secs
We can see that the window of opportunity to start conversations is negligible if a hot drink vending machine is in use.

If a worker spends less than 20 seconds obtaining their drink, there is far less opportunity to be waylaid by someone else.

Of course, the best place to get your hot drinks vending machine is right here at Red Hot Vending.

When to replace a Hot Drinks Vending Machine.

In today’s fast paced world, Hot Drinks Vending Machines can be a real blessing.

Relaxing with a hot drink, there’s nothing like it.
Especially when it’s been made for you by a modern vending machine.Hot Drinks Vending Machine

But, if you imagine your Hot Drinks Vending Machine looks anything like this inside, don’t you think it’s about time to upgrade to a new vending machine?

Although this is a lighthearted picture, there are a couple of more serious messages.

First there’s the obvious overworked, worn out internal “mechanics”.

As a hot drinks vending machine ages, it starts becoming less reliable.
After all, a vending machine consists of moving mechanical parts, just like a car.
And as the vending machine gets older, just like a car that’s done 100,000 miles, things will start to wear out.

Less obviously, we can also see that there’s mess and clutter around the inside of the machine.
Again, just like an old car, an old vending machine will be more difficult to keep clean.

A clean vending machine is a healthy vending machine!

How to know when your Hot Drinks Vending Machine needs replacing.

  • Are you constantly being called to the machine because it’s “robbed” someone of their money without vending a drink?.. Then it’s probably getting unreliable and needs replacing. (It may just need minor repair or adjustment, give us a call first!)
  • Are you always having to call out the engineer for small niggly repairs?.. Again, just like an old car there comes a time to let it go and upgrade to a new (or newer) machine, give us a call.
  • Are you constantly having to refill your vending machine?.. Your business may well have outgrown the machine. Call us for advice on a new machine which can handle more capacity.
  • Are you getting complaints that the hot drinks from the machine are “stale” or the ingredients are “stuck together” and won’t mix?.. This could mean that your machine is underused. Or there could be a problem with the boiler. Give us a call.

Hot Drinks Vending machines come in many different versions, depending on your requirements. They are capable of vending a mixture of coffees, teas, hot chocolates or just hot water.

3 easy steps to replacing your old Hot Drinks Vending machine.

  1. Choose a machine. (We know the choice can be daunting, so we can help you.)
  2. Choose your drinks. (Probably the easiest part.)
  3. Contact us! (Even easier than No 2!)
