The Great Office Coffee Election

The Great Office Coffee Election

“The time has come for us to change the coffee brand that we offer and we want your input!” The email came from Myiesha Gordon in the HR Department at WNYC. Like many others, Myiesha hated the office coffee. This week on The Sporkful, we follow her as she sets up a taste test, and an office-wide coffee election. We'll find out why office coffee is so important to people, plus we'll talk to a caffeine researcher about whether it makes us better at our jobs. Then a behavioral economist weighs in about whether coffee is something companies should be spending money on.

Since that episode first aired, Myiesha traveled the world, got married (and is now Myiesha Gordon-Beales) and is working on the Greenwood Art Project in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
