Competition time! Men, women and the coffee debate…

Competition time!  Men, women and the coffee debate…


The office has been pretty hectic this morning with comings and goings and in the midst of the morning banter, there is an ongoing debate as to whether men and women drink coffee for different reasons. Answers have varied from men drink coffee to get fired up, and women drink coffee to calm things down.

We are curious to know if you think men and women obtain a different experience from their coffee indulgence and if so, what do you believe is the number one reason why men drink coffee and the number one reason why women drink coffee.  Perhaps you see an obvious change from your partner, colleague or friend after their cup of coffee or maybe none at all!

To help you along in pondering this question…. we are giving away a pack of Fixx Coffee 250g to 3 lucky winners!

Winners will be chosen randomly on 23rd September 2011.

Good luck!
