Demand Analysis

Coffee specialty shops continue to increase and these shops cater to a wider and younger clientele. Being seen in coffee shops has almost become a status symbol nowadays which makes coffee a highly in demand commodity (Carillo, 2016). The third wave movement of the specialty coffee started at 2012 when specialty coffee shops started opening in the country (M.Joseph, 2015).

According to a study of Olsen (2013), Forty percent of 18 to 24 year olds, the ages in which students typically attend college, drink coffee every day ("National coffee drinking," 2012).
