According to recent research approximately 86% of the UK’s full-time workers drink tea and coffee every day, for many people a regular caffeine boost helps increase endurance and performance throughout the working day, which can be a big plus for employers, and due to the recent rise of café culture and big brand high street coffee outlets many employees are more aware and will take time out to indulge and spend time in coffee shops. However, some employers are yet to recognise the benefits to a business of providing basic catering essentials to their workforce within their own premises.
According to more research, 75% of staff buy their coffee and tea out of office, resulting in an estimated 40 hours of lost office time per employee each year. Recent studies have shown that employees consider access to high quality coffee is an important workplace perk, proving that the company cares about its workers.

Another year over and now it’s time to clean up after Christmas and New Year. With discarded toys and an excess of wrapping paper and food scraps this task can be daunting, but with the right products and a planned routine you can get your home tidy efficiently and quickly.
If you have help available then it’s an opportunity to initially clear the floor and surfaces, teamwork will get the job done much quicker, the kids are still off school remember so you can assign tasks to everyone. Identify homes for new toys and put the discarded wrapping paper in the recycling then see what needs a good scrub. If you investigate the whole house you can prepare in advance. Make a list, put a date in the diary and identify which products you need. Next it’s the deep clean. Instead of working on one room at a time perhaps focus on certain areas, start with surfaces first then the walls and floors, that way you are using one product at a time so the job will be finished a lot quicker. We suggest working on the most time consuming tasks first so that the chores you hate the most are out of the way. Working towards the easier and quickest tasks last will make the process much less of a burden.

And also when do you drink it? Are you interested in flavour over speed of use? To help you in your search we have provided a breakdown of the different types and a list of some of the best coffee machines.

If you want your caffeine fix in a hurry, just select your coffee while the machine is heating up (which takes around 30 seconds) and it will start dispensing your brew as soon as it’s up to temperature.

The story of Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa starts in Parma, the gastronomic capital of Italy, with the Costa family. When they migrated to England in the 1960’s, the family brought their miscela (blend) with them, going on to found a coffee empire now known throughout the world. Marco Costa, (the son of co-founder Sergio), is a successful entrepreneur and restauranteur in his own right. Understandably, coffee is in his blood, and Marco is dedicated to conserving the original family miscela, (Perla Bianca), which he uses in his own restaurants and has sold to a select group of foodservice customers. As demand for Perla Bianca increased, Marco searched for a roastery which could deliver the quality, quantity and consistency he required to meet demand whilst staying true to the heritage of the original blend. Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa is now produced in a state of the art, carbon-neutral UK facility.
Marco told us: ‘I am delighted that Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa will now be more widely available. It is very exciting to be able to offer a true Italian Heritage Blend, whilst minimising environmental impact by reducing Food Miles and Carbon Emissions’.
Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa is available in three different blends:
Perla Bianca: The original Costa family blend, with its classic Italian flavour profile, which kickstarted a coffee story now known throughout the whole world.
Perla Antica: Certified Organic and Fair Trade, this gorgeous chocolatey blend was developed to reflect Marco Costa’s commitment to the environment.
Decaffeinated: A high quality Italian roast blend, gently decaffeinated using the Swiss Water method.
Perla Beans are available packed in high quality, sturdy cases of 6x1kg.
A selection of beans and ground products are available in beautifully crafted resealable tins, packed in cases of 6x250g.
Whichever blend of Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa you choose, we’re confident you’ll appreciate the taste that was the foundation of a global coffee phenomenon.
