The 'Who Made Coffee' Platform Helps Keep Office Kitchens Clean

A new web-based app called 'Who Made Coffee' has been created to combat the issue of scummy coffee pots and sticky microwave spills in the office kitchen. Instead of relying on passive-aggressive notes exchanged by coworkers, the app helps turn kitchen cleanup into a friendly competition.

Who Made Coffee was developed by Gordon Bockus and Patty Cifra as a solution to the issue of maintaining a small office kitchen. The app works by asking each employee to make an online profile. When each employee completes a task such as making coffee, restocking paper towels or doing the dishes, the system will award points based on the value of the chore. Employees can then compete against one another to see who can earn the most points, with prizes for those who complete the greatest number of chores. The gamified approach is meant to incentivize employees to keep the office kitchen clean and foster friendlier communication about daily chores.

Ideal for companies without a designated cleaning staff, Who Made Coffee gives employees a new reason to stay on top of kitchen cleanup.
