Why Espresso is the Best Pick-Me-Up Gift for Coworkers

If anyone understands the struggles of your life, it is your coworkers. You all come in to the same place, every day, have similar workloads and have to deal with the same (annoying) problems. The life of a nine-to-five can quickly wear anyone down, which is why the need for a pick-me-up every so often is an absolute necessity. To spread the cheer at your office this holiday season, here are a few reasons why you should give your coworkers the best pick-me-up gift around: espresso.


Is there a need to say anything more? Typically, one ounce of espresso has 64 milligrams of caffeine. There is no need to drink an inordinate amount of this beverage to get that ‘zing’ you need from caffeine. Productivity in the office will skyrocket after everyone has enjoyed their espresso. Even if one of your coworkers cannot have caffeine, there are decaffeinated versions of espresso that they can enjoy, so they do not have to miss out on the pick-me-up fun.

Espresso’s Expressive Flavor

Many shy away from espresso because they are afraid they would not like it, thinking that it is too strong or bitter. While espresso can have a bitter taste to it, not all espressos are made the same. In fact, the way that espresso is “pulled” can have a great effect on its flavor. These flavors can range from bitter to rich, full, sweet and so much more. This is why espresso is the best pick-me-up gift you can buy for your coworkers, because there is a little bit of something there for everyone.

Lattes and Cappuccinos and Americanos, Oh My!

Of course, you don’t have to drink the espresso shots straight, though some may prefer to do so. There are so many drinks you can make with espresso, it’s insane. Brush up on your barista skills and learn how to make these drinks so that your office break room can be turned into an in-house café. What could possibly pick coworkers up more than having a delicious array of hot beverages adjacent to their desk?

Lattes and cappuccinos are similar, except lattes are made with more steamed milk, as opposed to frothed milk. Café lattes have a great coffee-flavor to them, but by incorporating different syrups, you can create your own flavored drinks. Americanos are simply shots of espresso and hot water. However, the key ingredient to all of these fun and flavorful drinks is the best espresso beans, which is what makes them such a great gift. It’s really like giving a lot of gifts in one.

Skip the Coffee House and Sleep In

If your coworkers are like mostly everyone else, they value the little time they get to sleep at night. By giving your coworkers espresso to enjoy at home, they can skip their daily trip to the local coffee house, allowing for them to sleep-in leave for work later. The best pick-me-up gift can be enjoyed from the comfort of their home, in their pajamas, before they have to brave the world of work for another day.
