We have another variation of the "coffee club". One of the guys is in charge of running it. They are charging 25 cents a cup, which seems to work.

They are using a coffee service which provides the coffee maker, pots, coffee filters and boxes of coffee packets that make one pot of coffee. There is sugar and creamer, but the big containers are not out, just smaller dispensers.

There's a sheet on the break room wall with the days of the week. Everyone in the group has their name on the list. Each time they take a cup of coffee, they make a tick mark next to their name. If they take the last cup of coffee in the pot, they are supposed to make another pot unless it's too late in the day.

After payday, the guy in charge goes around and collects the money from everyone.

It works pretty well, mostly. There used to be a cup that people put quarters in, but some people worried that the money would get stolen, which led to the current system. For a while, some people were using up the sugar, putting it on cereal. One of the members is flaky about paying up. And sometimes there is wasted coffee, unused coffee in the pot at the end of the day. At another job I had, there was a problem of people leaving the pot on the burner with only a small amount of coffee in it & the coffee would boil down and get sludgy but people in this group tend not to do that.
