Add it to someone's job responsibilities and sack the idiot who bought a machine that needs so much maintenance (I assume it has a built in milk dispenser)

Why? Are coffee machines like this too heavy to steal? I'd have thought they'd have some scrap value at least.

We have someone in admin that generally does it but they also look after ordering all the milk, coffee etc and liaising with the technicians that need to fix it
Things quickly go to shit when they're not there though

No way should you clean it.

Bloody coffee drinkers and office politics are so wank. Mind you, if one of these tossers have any input on your pay rewards, yeah clean it, in fact offer to take over their turn as well.

Then do something horrible into the machine – I bet rabbit/mouse shit is easily obtainable and readily deployed into the machine with a minimum of fuss.

Ask AWJ to clean it out for you. Then when he flops into it, dents it slightly, then falls over the other side you can claim it's sparklingly clean while all your colleagues complain it's actually complete shit

Just to close out the story, I went in today to potentially have another barney over the coffee machine, and the fella who'd started the argument just came over and apologised for the way he acted. :shock:

Not sure how you can confuse an Americano with a Flat White, did you mean a Long Black (patent pending)?

I was talking about the All Black FFS, seems to be a rather obscure name for a coffee.

Isn't "Long Blacks" the name of the Kiwi netball team anyway?

If you don't drink coffee why should you be responsible for cleaning the machine???

Forget about the fact that it is causing a split in the office - if you brought in a slushie machine and expected people to clean it even though they didn't drink/eat slushies - they'd kick off.

I'd perhaps be raising the issue that a wedge of cash has been spent on a office implement that doesn't benefit every person in the office.

I assume an All Black us what happens when a bit of clear eye is dropped in the water reservoir

Does every bit of office equipment need to benefit every person in the office? Absurd argument.

Hope you're prepared for the microwave and fridge to be removed because Kerry the fat accounts receivable drone eats maccas for lunch everyday.

No - but a massively expensive coffee machine with digital readout and all the bells and whistles certainly seems a little bit above your average £80.00 microwave or £120.00 fridge.

If you want a coffee machine go get a £200.00 one.....don't go spending a couple of grand on something that doesn't benefit every one.

Sorry I'm so absurd having that opinion??

So who sets the bar on what's too expensive? This is NZ remember, where people take coffee much more seriously than the UK.

TBH if I was the MD and I'd shelled out some cash on a nice coffee machine for my sta only to have some Welsh prick winge that he'd never use it so shouldn't clean it, I'd be f**king fuming.

The right answer is to tell the bosses to add it to the list of asks for the office cleaner. It may cost a couple of bucks more but if they can afford a flash new coffee machine, they can afford to pay the cleaner a bit more.

And if you haven't got a cleaner, create some employment.
