Q: How much will BrewHub cost us?
If you have the full BrewHub service, which includes coffee, valet and pantry, your cost will be approximately $1 per person per day. When you compare that to the cost of people leaving your building to go down the road to get a cup of coffee, it is extremely competitive. On average, it takes an employee 17 minutes to leave the building to get a coffee and that equates to a large amount of lost productivity and hidden cost.
Q: Do I have to take the full service?
Of course not, however we genuinely find that when our service modules are bundled together our customers get a much better outcome and get much better value for their money. It saves them managing multiple suppliers and provides one point of contact for the whole kitchen hub space.
Q: How do I know if the coffee machine will fit?
Please head to our Architects and Designers section for more information on product specification.
Q: How reliable are your coffee machines?
BrewHub manage a fleet of coffee machines in corporate workplaces all over Australia. Due to the way we manage that fleet, our machine availability is in excess of 97%. This far exceeds any of our competitors in this space.
Q: What coffee beans do you use in your machines?
BrewHub have a vertically integrated coffee business and we roast our own beans on the northern beaches in Manly with our sister company 7 Miles Coffee Roasters. We work closely with 7 Miles and have built a family of 9 blends that suit the corporate office environment. Get in touch if you want to learn more about our beans.
Q: How does your coffee offering compare to capsules?
As a general rule, when you compare the per kilo price of our coffee to the per kilo price of capsules, we are approximately 1/5th of the cost. Not to mention, the environmental impact of capsules. Did you know that capsules take between 300 and 500 years to breakdown in the environment?
Q: How much control do I have over my coffee flavour?
In cup quality depends on a number of different factors such as water, milk, coffee and equipment settings. With increased technology, you have more control over your in-cup quality than ever before. When you choose to use a BrewHub coffee machine we will conduct blind tasting sessions with your employees and fine tune the in-cup experience based on feedback from your staff.
Q: What is my cost per cup, approximately?
The cost per cup always depends on what you include. If we’re talking coffee, and depending on what blend you choose, the cost per cup will be between 20 and 30 cents. But the strength of the BrewHub model is that we can provide you with a machine, coffee, milk and cleaning of the machine every day for as little as 75 cents a cup.
Q: What does the Valet actually do?
The primary function of the valet is to make sure that the coffee machine is hygienic and operational before all your staff arrive for work every day. Once that important task has been done, they will rotate and reorder milk, restock and reorder consumables and display fruit and snacks, ensuring that the staff hub space is presentable for the day.
Q: What kind of support will I get after install?
BrewHub is focused on the workplace experience. What’s most important to us is the experience you have after you’ve received your machine, beans and all your consumables. Our valets will work tirelessly to bring all those components together so that your staff hub experience is improved for all of your people.
Q: How does your invoicing work?
You’ll get one invoice once a month which summarises everything that we do for you in the staff hub space. We also have on offer a clear and concise monthly report to support our invoice. If you would like, our account manager can meet with you each month to talk about how our services are performing on your site.
Q: How long will it take to fix my machine?
BrewHub offer a fixed monthly rental fee on their entire range. This means you will never get another bill to fix a coffee machine again. We have a fully manned support desk which will dispatch a technician to fix your machine on the same day.
