Selling coffee: what you should know before starting your business

All you need to know before starting a coffee business

Selling coffee: a business that knows no crisis, because coffee is one of the world’s most popular drink, with an average consumption of more than 4 kilos per person.

But we have to consider too that the habits with regards to this dark beverage extracted from the Arabica and Robusta grains are changing drastically.

While in the past people used to drink coffee at the bar, now they drink it at home or in the workplace, thanks to the pods, capsules and espresso machines which replaced the old mocha.

With the money spent on one coffee at the bar it’s possible to buy from 6 to 10 coffee in a unit dose pack, or more if we’re talking about coffee grains or ground coffee.

The retail prices are constantly decreasing, and this is another reason of pods and capsules success between the consumers: people spend less buying excellent coffees for business or home; we are talking about a creamy and tasty coffee, easy to prepare, ready in a few minutes and at a very good price.

At a time when it’s getting harder to find a job, more and more people choose to start a business in the coffee sector.

If you want to be a wholesaler coffee retailer or if you want to open a coffee store, or a coffee corner, this is the place to come.

In any case, the chances of creating a successfull business without spending great capitals are very high.

Even if coffee is an essential whim, improvisation never pays in this type of business.
