Coffee is a staple for many Australians. On average, Australians consume 1.92 kilos of coffee per person per year. For a quick, convenient offering such as in a workplace or healthcare setting, you might be looking to provide instant coffee.
If you’re brewing the coffee at your shop, café or restaurant, consider buying coffee beans in bulk. As with most products, you’re likely to save on money while still getting a high-quality product. When deciding how big your order should be, think about how long it takes to get through the batch. Coffee doesn’t necessarily go bad, but it loses flavour over time. The average shelf life is three or four weeks after roasting. The benefits of saving money and time ordering bulk batches won’t outweigh a disappointed customer if they get a below average cuppa.
If you want to expand your beverage menu, consider trying different coffee recipes. There are dozens of different ways to make coffee. Offering variations will make sure your customers can find what they’re looking for.
