I’ve always wanted to work in the city, so I was delighted to get the opportunity with Curium.
One aspect of city working that’s always fascinated me is the ‘coffee culture’. The hordes of people you see walking briskly around the streets carrying little paper bags with coffee and something no-doubt-not-particularly-healthy inside.
Not something I’d ever do. Or so I thought.
However after a few weeks of instant coffee inside the office, I soon found myself saying ‘yes please’ when someone was popping out for a ‘posh coffee’. I soon got the taste for it, and became a paper-bag carrier myself. That was until I realised how much these little trips was making a dent on my wallet – and how many pounds were creeping on my hips.
Time for change
So I spoke to our MD – our main office escapee and coffee shopper – and suggested we get a cafetiere and save some money.
To his due, he arrived the next morning with a rather stylish cafetiere and some proper coffee. So we’re all saving some money and enjoying our little work coffee ritual every morning.
Which just goes to prove that a small change can make a big difference.
