A Look Inside The World Of Independent Coffee Shops

Everyone loves coffee – or at least, most everyone. In fact, the average person in the United States drinks more than one cup of coffee every single day and coffee market in the United States has a retail value of nearly fifty million dollars. In 2014 alone, the United States needed to import as many as twenty seven million bags of coffee in order to keep up with the demand. More and more Americans are pursuing specialty coffees as well, such as espresso, cappuccino, and latte.

Because of the convenience and the quality, many people get their preferred coffee beverage from a local coffee shop and this is seem in the growth of independent coffee shops around the country. Currently, independent coffee shops make more than ten billion dollars every single year in sales. With at least thirty percent of the population in the United States drinking coffee on at least a regular basis, independent coffee shops have found themselves with no shortage of customers.

But from plain white paper cups to wooden coffee stirrers, there are many things that go into the smooth function of any independent coffee shop. Some items, like wooden coffee stirrers, are not things that the average person gives much thought. But wooden coffee stirrers would be missed if they were suddenly not available, as only around thirty five percent of coffee drinkers take their coffee black, and so they too are an important consideration for any independent coffee shop owner or employee. Aside from wooden coffee stirrers, having the appropriate ingredients for coffee is also hugely essential to any coffee shop, independent or otherwise. Over sixty percent of coffee drinkers take their coffee with cream, and so cream is necessary in any coffee shop. Different types of cream as well as non dairy options are becoming more popular as well, as people continue to express a variety of dietary needs. In the same vein, different types of sugar are also necessary, from raw sugar to sugar substitutes.

White disposable coffee cups are key to the success of an independent coffee shop as well, as the majority of people will want to take their coffee beverage to go. White paper coffee cups allow this to become a reality, and having disposable supplies makes buying coffee all the more convenient for your typical coffee consumer.

No matter where you are in the United States, coffee is a fact of life for many people. The majority of people drink coffee regularly or at least occasionally and many people prefer to buy their coffee from independent coffee shops in order to support local business and try new flavors that may not be available at coffee shop chains. Independent coffee shop owners have a lot to consider, like what supplies to buy (from wooden coffee stirrers to disposable white paper cups) to what types of milk to offer in order to accommodate the dietary needs of their customers.
