IT'S ALL ABOUT THE COFFEE - AUSTRALIA'S COFFEE CULTURE
SAPPS AND CO - LEADING SUNSHINE COAST COFFEE ROASTERS
The Australian coffee industry has seen a rapid growth in the past 5 years as Australians become more and more obsessed with seeking premium coffee. Cafes and Coffee shops have seen higher turnover and revenue in coffee as consumers prefer a decent coffee and are willing to pay the price to get it. In fact, us Aussies are actually one of the highest consumers of coffee across the globe. Unfortunately though, to date the highest level of coffee consumption is attributed to the instant coffee!
Thankfully though, this trend is shifting. The cafe culture in Australia continues year on year, witnessing a rapid growth in demand as we become more passionate about the quality of our coffee. We are becoming more interested in where our coffee comes from, how it is farmed, where it is roasted and how fresh it is. This quirky interest drives coffee lovers to independent cafes and coffee shops, while coffee chains such as Starbucks and Gloria Jeans only hold around 5% of our coffee consumption. As the interest and demand for coffee grows and as Australia’s coffee culture grows, we see the number of small specialty cafes increase, resulting in a high level of competition, low barriers to entry and low industry concentration. It is for these reasons we will continue to see the rise of café’s across our great country.
The coffee industry itself is highly fragmented and dominated by small, individual businesses. At Sapps and Co, we work passionately to support the smaller café and coffee shop and provide services that go beyond just supplying quality coffee beans. Our services actually include consultation services that can change the profit margins, reduce loss and improve staff structure. Contact us to find out how we can help your business!
