    Comments Please: Questions About Trends in Your Shop

    I didn't know how to title this so here are my questions for you today.

    1. Are there people who come into your shop who just want to buy a standard auto brewed cup of coffee like they would make at home?

    2. Do you see people coming in and ordering non-conventional coffee drinks? Do people want pour over, cold brew, coffee drinks using single origin beans?

    3. Are there any non coffee drinks that seem to be a hit in your shop?

    4. This may be similar to question one. Do you see a lot of people order an espresso rather than an espresso type drink?

    5. Do you serve nitro brew coffee?

    # 1 - The majority of people ask for brewed coffee.

    #2 - In recent weeks, several people have asked for a strong Americano, instead of an espresso or espresso based drink. A new trend starting perhaps?

    #3 - Non-coffee drinks such as iced tea and lemonade are popular during the summer. Hot chocolate during the winter.

    #4 - Espresso based beverages seem to be more popular than a plain straight-up shot of espresso.

    #5 - No nitro brew coffee

    I don't understand why someone would want an Americano as it's coffee mixed with water.

    Actually, it's espresso mixed with water, ideally to the same strength as drip coffee. The difference is, since it's made with espresso, there is a greater % of non-dissolved solids and oils in the brew giving it a richer mouthfeel than filtered coffee.

    Also, a 10oz Americano is made with about a 15g espresso dose. To get a filtered brew to the same perceived strength, you need 19g of coffee. So an Americano gives you more coffee flavor with less caffeine.
