I don't understand how much the company expects to save by cutting coffee. Instead of wasting time in thinking of cost cutting they can think of better ways of investing in business in these tough times.

Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom
In a company I worked before, company management put cloth napkin (one big one) instead of paper napkins (multiple) to wipe hands after hand wash. You know what happend? In one day the white cloth napkin color changed to dark color and people started getting infections and most of the people tood medical leave for a week
These companies earns profits in billions and when it comes to cost cutting they try to save pea nuts.
