Helping workplaces encourage small talk.

We are a group of Melbourne coffee makers committed to using the ritual of brewing coffee together to encourage workplace small talk. We believe a little small talk makes a big impact on workplace relationships and coming together over coffee is a fun way to connect, support and relax with colleagues. Our workplace blend is a smooth, ethically sourced blend from sustainable producers and perfect for coffee machines, or plungers

58% of people say they trust strangers more than their own boss.
42% of us don't have a single friend at work.
1 in 5 adults are lonely. At work, loneliness reduces task performance, limits creativity, and impairs executive function.
87% of employees worldwide are not engaged in work.

A little small talk can make a big impact.

In the modern workplace we often send emails, instant messages or communicate in virtual team workspaces rather than chat to our colleagues in person. We are on a mission to encourage people to pause their day and share a coffee with a colleague because we believe you don't have to make everyone at work best mates but a little small talk makes a big impact on workplace relationships.

Take the 30-day plunge.

Future Coffee is seeking 'Team Plungers' to disrupt their workplace with some old technology. No plunging experience is preferred and people who use phrases such as ‘let’s touch base offline’ or ‘you’re on my strategic radar’ need not apply. You will be required to ‘plunge it forward’ and track your plunges so we can find out your 30-day Key Plunging Indicator (KPI’s).
