SUBJECT: Coffee in a Box
The average length of time coffee stays hot in a box is about 16 minutes. Assuming an average transit/set-up time from your store to our meeting room is 14 minutes, that leaves 2 minutes on the ticking clock of hot coffee. The average duration of a meeting for which outside food and coffee is procured is 2 hours.
