About Me

choosing food suppliers for a non-profit camp

I have spent endless hours searching for food suppliers to purchase the food for the non-profit campground that I help run through the summer. I have learned that all pricing is different from supplier to supplier and so is the quality of the food that they offer. It has taken a very long time for me to learn what to get from a big food supplier and when to purchase things from a smaller supplier. To learn my methods of ordering food on a very tight budget for hundreds of people, visit my website. There, you will find a breakdown of my supplies and the suppliers that I use to get what I need each summer.

Tips For Getting Better Office Coffee

by Layla Watson

If you have ever worked in an office that has a coffee maker, you're probably going to not remember that coffee very fondly because it probably did not taste very good. In order to make sure that your office coffee is drinkable, you are going to need to try the following tips.

1. Clean Out the Machine Regularly With Vinegar

Fill the reservoir in the coffee maker with a combination of water and vinegar. Try to fill it about two thirds of the way up with water and top it off with vinegar. Run this mixture through the coffee maker multiple times until the only thing that comes out of the coffee makes is clear liquid, rather than a nasty, yellow-brown combination. Doing this makes it easy for you to be sure that you removed any coffee grounds that were left over, as well as any minerals that might have built up on the sides of the coffee maker that could spoil that taste of the coffee.

2. Switch to a Different Coffee

Start an office financial collection to try different, slightly more expensive brands of coffee. Go online and do your research by reading reviews of other people who have tried different bulk coffee suppliers. You will be able to find the best tasting one for the price in this manner. In order to help encourage people to cough up for better coffee, try bringing in a small bag of better coffee and leaving it out for anyone to use and make. Do this for a week or two and see if anyone notices the difference. There's an excellent chance that they will. Once you have the entire office hooked on the better coffee, reveal yourself and say that you will be responsible for helping get better coffee as long as everyone chips in a certain dollar amount. Try to keep the dollar amount under five dollars. 

If anyone needs further enticing, ask those people to consider the cost of purchasing take-out coffee each day as opposed to paying a small fee each week to drink palatable office coffee.

3. Bring Your Own Extras

Even the worst coffee can be made palatable with delicious creamers and sugar. If you can't get the office to pay for better coffee, bring in your own sugar and creamer and keep it at your desk. Use it to make the coffee taste better by creating your own coffee recipes.
