What Makes the Ideal Coffee Shop for Working In

     More and more people are now able to work from home thanks to developments in business as well as the popularity of smaller, more portable and more connected devices. While work once meant being glued to a desk in a soul-destroying cubicle, for many it now means sitting in a coffee shop and enjoying a hot drink while chatting to strangers and sitting in a comfortable arm chair.

Any coffee shop will be preferable to a very bland corporate environment, and particularly thanks to the addition of coffee which, let's face it, makes any situation better. But what is it that makes the ideal coffee shop for knuckling down to work? And what should you be on the lookout for when you decide where to go with your laptop? Here we will look at the most important requirements.


Complete silence in a coffee shop is just eerie, but if you're hoping to get real work done then you don't want it to be too noisy either.

Tables and Seating

The tables and seats you choose are their whole own thing, and this can make a huge difference to your productivity. Basically you want seats that will be comfortable for an extended period of time, but at the same time be upright enough to make you feel productive. You need a table to be within easy reaching distance from the best seats, but you also need this table to be the right height, big enough to spread out on, and free from rocking.

The Coffee

This is still a coffee shop though, and as such it's important not to forget the whole point of its existence - to provide coffee. While you may have come here to work, buying a coffee is only polite and is also a great way to relax and to increase your productivity.
