Bevi Cooler in Taunton

A New Beverage Source in Taunton

Bevi Cooler in Taunton

Do you remember learning about the 3 R’s of recycling – reduce, reuse, and recycle? Bevi, the “eco-friendly, many flavored, healthy water cooler that never runs out,” can help you with two of them as well as provide you with a delicious beverage. What’s Bevi you ask? Bevi is a free-standing water cooler where everyone can fill their own water bottle or glass with filtered, flat or carbonated, and flavored or plain water. It’s your choice.

Reduce and Reuse

So, how does Bevi help Taunton consumers with reducing and reusing? Using Bevi can help reduce the carbon footprint by reducing the number of plastic bottles that are manufactured and by dramatically decreasing the amount of energy needed for transporting filled beverage bottles. Out of the 50 million barrels of oil that are used worldwide to make plastic bottles, the United States (U.S.) uses 17 million of them. By asking users to reuse their own bottles, Bevi uses 0 barrels of oil. The Bevi machine also helps to reduce the amount of water that is wasted with manufacturing bottled water as 3 bottles worth of water are wasted in the manufacturing of 1 bottle of water. Lastly, Bevi helps to reduce the number of bottles that end up in the landfill. Each year 41 billion bottles end up in a landfill in the U.S. Using one Bevi machine can eliminate approximately 35,000 of those bottles.

Helping Humans

Bevi is great for the humans that use it too. The activated carbon filtration system provides pure, great-tasting water by removing sediment, chemicals, pesticides, and the byproducts of chlorination. It’s now up to you to determine what type of water you’d like—flat or carbonated. You can enjoy either one plain or with an added flavor. The flavors available include a wide range of choices including unsweetened Peach, unsweetened Lemon, unsweetened Cucumber, naturally sweetened Orange Mango, naturally sweetened Blackberry Lime and more.

But those who consume the water aren’t the only ones that a Bevi can help. The Bevi machine comes with an internet connection and proactive monitoring. You don’t need to monitor flavor usage or filter status. Bevi does that for you and lets us know when we need to make a flavor delivery or change a filter. Of course, you can always contact us if you would like to try a new flavor or change one out.

Other Benefits

In addition to creating a greener workplace and reducing waste in Taunton, the Bevi is a unique office perk to offer your employees. Not only does using Bevi encourage the healthy habit of drinking more water and consuming low-sugar beverages, but employees are more likely to take a stress-reducing break while getting that beverage. Creating an environment that helps employees focus on healthy habits and stress reduction can both positively influence employee health and increase office productivity. While some organizations choose to offer nap rooms, game rooms, or gym memberships, don’t forget to add healthy snacks and beverages to your list of office perks. Top off your micro-market break room with a Bevi, and you’re on your way to creating an inviting and stress-reducing space.

Coffee in Norwood

Benefits for Norwood Coffee Drinkers

Coffee in Norwood

Coffee seems to be transforming its reputation. It’s no longer seen as the harmful beverage it once was. Just this year, the International Journal of Cancer published the results of a study examining “the effect of Italian-style coffee consumption on prostate cancer risk” in almost 7,000 men in the Molise region of Italy (Pounis, et al., 2017, p. 72). The researchers determined that the men who consumed more than three cups of Italian-style coffee per day had a 53 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer than those who drank zero to two cups per day. That is great news!

But, wait a minute—what is Italian-style coffee? Is it the same as American coffee? Turns out, it isn’t. Italian-style coffee is prepared in high-pressure hot water (over 1600 degrees Fahrenheit) without using filters. Most Norwood employees know it as espresso, not coffee.

This isn’t to say that coffee doesn’t have any health benefits. In fact, the results of two studies that were published in 2016 show that coffee does more than offer an energy boost and decrease the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. The International Agency for Research on Cancer determined, after reviewing 1000 previously completed studies, that coffee cannot be classified as a cause of cancer anymore. At the same time, a different group of researchers was performing a comprehensive analysis of the relationship between coffee and different cancer types. They found that coffee intake was associated with reduced risk of oral, pharynx, liver, colon, prostate, endometrial cancer, and melanoma. More good news.

There is one concern, however, that researchers discovered while studying coffee. Drinking hot or very hot beverages, whether coffee, tea, or something else, can contribute to an increased risk of esophageal cancer or cancer of the esophagus when compared to lower temperature beverages. To help avoid that, remember to give your coffee a few minutes to cool before drinking it. Norwood consumers also have a variety of cold beverages such as Bevi, iced tea, or bottled water to choose from if they are looking for something at a lower temperature.

With such a variety of benefits and coffee’s improved reputation, it’s time to consider either updating your current Norwood office coffee service or offering a new benefit to your employees—the gourmet coffeehouse experience in your break room. Uniquely sourced and locally roasted beans are the foundation for a great cup of coffee and a relaxing mid-afternoon break.
