Does your office have the worst coffee in the area? I cannot begin to tell you the horror stories about some of the sludge monsters that came out of our coffee maker back when I worked at a Mortgage office O.o! Read on:
Wanted: The Worst Office Coffee in the CSRA!
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Does your office coffee look — and taste — like something that could be used to grease engine parts? Or is it so weak that you can read staff memos through it? Whether it’s burned, bitter, lukewarm or just plain nasty, your horrible morning brew could win your office a Coffee Intervention and free freshly roasted coffee for a year from Buona Caffe Artisan Roasted Coffee!
In honor of National Coffee Day on Sept. 29, Buona Caffe, Augusta’s local roaster of specialty coffee, is looking for the worst office coffee in the CSRA. The contest is open to businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, government agencies — anyone with an office and a coffee pot — in the Central Savannah River Area. The rules are simple: Visit the Facebook page of Buona Caffe between now and Sept. 21, “like” the page and tell us why the coffee at your office deserves the title of Worst Office Coffee in the CSRA.
“We know from talking to people at the Augusta Market every Saturday that there’s an awful lot of disgusting coffee being brewed in offices around the CSRA,” says John Curry, co-owner and roast master of Buona Caffe (the name means ‘good coffee’ in Italian). “That just doesn’t make good business sense. Happily caffeinated employees look forward to coming to work and are much more productive.”
The winning entry will receive a Coffee Intervention, a fun event in which the company’s employees will enjoy freshly roasted coffee brewed by hand at their office by Buona Caffe’s trained coffee professionals. Plus, the winner will receive a free bag of Buona Caffe coffee each month for 12 months!
“Education is a big part of what we do,” Curry says. “We love sharing with people how they can make a great cup of coffee at home or at the office.”
The winner will be announced at 10 a.m. on National Coffee Day, Saturday, Sept. 29, at Buona Caffe’s booth at The Augusta Market at the River. Everyone who nominates their office will receive a buy one/get one free coupon for coffee
drinks at the Saturday market.
Buona Caffe Artisan Roasted Coffee roasts specialty coffees from Central and South America, Africa and Indonesia at 1837 Central Ave., Augusta. (The entrance is in the rear of the building.) The roaster is open from 9-2 Tuesday through Friday to buy coffee by the bag.
