Here at Scanomat, it’s no secret that we are passionate about coffee. We live, breathe and think it. But the way the coffee we know and love is consumed has changed since the first coffee beans were discovered roughly 1000 years ago. Our ancestors certainly didn’t start their days with a cup of Cold Brew or a macchiato.

A co-working space refers to a shared office space. Often used by freelancers, start ups and small companies, they can be a great alternative to a conventional office. According to coworkinglondon.com, the number of members of an average co-working space has increased by around 30% in the last couple of years, as well as the number of co-working spaces doubling. Between 2014 and 2015, there was a global increase of over 200,000 members of co-working spaces. It is thought that this trend is connected to the growing number of freelance workers, as well as people working remotely.

Other than the increase in freelance and flexible workers, what are some other reasons that co-working has become so popular? Why choose a co-working space, as opposed to a “normal” office?

We all know coffee is delicious, and (as you can read in this blog post) it can have some fantastic health benefits. But that’s not the only thing you can do with your coffee. The next time the coffee grounds bin needs emptying, don’t just throw it out. Each year, the UK produces 500,000 tonnes of waste coffee grounds each year. Instead of adding to this pile of waste, read on to find out how to recycle your coffee grounds!

It might be obvious, but here at Scanomat, we LOVE coffee. It’s our passion, and we pride ourselves on not only developing one of the most technologically advanced coffee machines in the world, but also providing the best quality coffee to go with it.

Only the top 1% of coffee beans are selected to make up our Amokka Coffee range. They are shipped from our partner farms across the world to our head office in Denmark, where they are micro-roasted to ensure the best quality, every time.

We could talk all day about our coffee, but is there actually any benefit to drinking it? Over the years, there have been many conflicting ideas about the benefits of coffee.

So, why should you start your day with a coffee?

The Rise of the “Coffice”

With many coffee shops and cafes now providing free wifi as standard we have seen a rise in individuals working from coffee shops, so much so that a new term has been coined to describe the use of coffee shops as offices. The “Coffice” is defined in the urban dictionary as “A coffee shop one makes into an office where non-coffee shop work is performed.” The ‘home from home’ environment, social aspect and good quality coffee makes the “coffice” a very appealing workplace for many and in this blog we explore why.

What is Cold Brew?

Cold Brew is the latest craze to drive innovation in the coffee category. You’ve most likely heard of the ‘third wave’ of coffee, well Cold Brew is definitely part of this movement. Not to be confused with iced-coffee, Cold Brew is brewed completely differently to any other kind of coffee drink which gives it a really distinctive character, texture and flavour.

Cold Brew vs Iced-Coffee?

You may be wondering what the difference is between iced-coffee and Cold Brew. Well, iced coffee is brewed hot, cooled down and then served over ice, whereas Cold Brew coffee is NEVER exposed to heat. Instead it is steeped in cold/room temperature water for up to 24 hours to extract the best flavours from the bean before being served.

Desks are getting smaller but the office footprint isn’t shrinking, instead businesses are moving away from conventional office design in favour of creating more inviting and flexible workspaces that foster collaboration and provide an escape from the traditional desk.

As breakout areas become more popular in the workspace across all sectors (not just tech companies), so too does the demand for premium barista-quality beverages and other enticing refreshments, giving the much sought-after millennial generation little reason to leave the office.
