A cup of coffee, a stack of files and a desk makes one comfortable to work.
The provision of cafés has allowed individuals; small teams and the self employed a space to build their makeshift workspaces.

Book for 60 minutes, a 10-hour day, a six-day week or the full month, flexibility is what they scream and the fluid environment is what gets the users engaged.

Mind and the Approach:
While coffee is the focal point while visiting cafes, work is the supplement. At co-working spaces, work is the focal center, where coffee or any other beverage is the complement. The bustle, the laughter and the jokes in cafes preclude an environment conducive to work but that is where the mindset of work at a co-working allows users to be engaged without much distraction.
