A couple of months ago we got a coffeemaker for the office (accounting, IT/Software, HR, Sales) And for me and my partner was "the best thing ever" since we drink coffee on a daily basis.
We agreed as departments to pitch in for the supplies(ground coffee, sugar, milk substitute) and to rotate the appliance's maintenance(cleaning) among the departments. But after the buying of the first "supply batch" no one seemed to really care for it, they stopped pitching in for coffee, they stopped cleaning it(IT/Software was the only department who would clean it daily) we got tired of asking them to clean it. And then they suddenly just stopped drinking coffee all-together.
My partner and I paid for the supplies most of the times under the "promise" that we would be paid back by our coworkers, which didn't happen. We even buy a big box with lots of different tea packets for those who don't feel like drinking coffee out of our pockets without asking for anything in return. Now, would it be wrong if we ask our superiors to move the coffeemaker to our department office? We've basically been maintaining and paying for everything related to the coffee in the office, and we can lose some time by walking all the way over to the cafeteria just to get coffee, and the only ones benefiting from it and using it are my coworker and I. (We don't need our money back, we just feel like having it in the office will reduce the amount of times we have to step out of the office during work hours and overtime hours)
