office coffee taste test

via vs lululemon office coffee

This afternoon we put our lululemon office coffee to the test against the new Starbucks VIA instant coffee. Can you guess which came out on top?

Sheena - very thrilled at the idea of instant coffee!

Ronnh - not convinced the 'Bucks could beat our regular office joe.


Monica, our VIA chef! Time to the tear the package...


The powder goes in the mug! That was easy!

Our office coffee... is it up to the challenge?

the blue mug

Here goes - pouring the office coffee ...

lululemon two mugs

Nat doesn't know which mug is which. She drinks regular Starbucks drip coffee each morning.

Hint: Blue mug = Office Coffee, Purple Mug = VIA

the office coffee .. shhh

Nat was not a fan of the blue mug coffee. Fail. :( This was our office java.

The purple mug ...

Yum! Nat loved what was in the purple mug - and knew it was the Starbucks coffee. She said it tasted exactly like it was fresh from the store!

Starbucks VIA wins

Yep! We have a WINNER! Starbucks VIA clearly beats our office java.

back to work

And now .. back to work!

Wow, I’m surprised the instant coffee beat out the real stuff. I’m going to have to try it!

For such a socially progressive company, you should be investing in the quality of your office coffee program the way you do with your products. Starbucks?? The next time I need some yoga gear, I might as well get me a Hanes undershirt. Same thing.
Respectfully yours.
