Impact of Covid-19 on the Coffee Industry
Where Covid-19 has destroyed several industries, it also has its fair share on the coffee industry – with short to medium and even long-term effects. In addition to dramatically affecting the economies around the world, this pandemic represents a further challenge to the coffee industry, which was already facing a prolonged period of low prices and stagnant production. According to the report of the National Coffee Association, Americans are drinking more coffee this year than ever! Following are some of the highlights of the report issued by NCA that is worth having a look: Overall Consumption of Coffee 62% of Americans drink coffee daily. 25% of people who ordered coffee outside the home within the past week did so through an app. This also poses an excellent opportunity for startups.

Nearly 50% of daily coffee drinkers who buy coffee outside the home do it at a drive-through. 7 out of 10 Americans drink coffee at least once per week.

The Best Non-Dairy Milks For Coffee
With so many milk alternatives out there, you no longer have to sacrifice on flavor when opting for a non-dairy milk due to health or environmental reasons. But with shelves and shelves of plant-based options to choose from, it’s hard to decide on the right one for you.

Through research and personal experience, here’s a list of some of the most popular non-dairy milks that combine best with coffee. Macadamia Nut Milk The closest non-dairy option to cow’s milk is probably macadamia nut milk. It has the highest fat content on this list, creating a thick and creamy texture. Usually, a good rule of thumb is the higher the fat content, the better it will taste in your coffee. In terms of flavor, it’s not overly sweet like cashew milk, but has a buttery, nutty flavor. Unfortunately, this milk substitute is one of the more expensive options out there, and it’s not always available in stores. Coconut Milk Coconut milk also does really well in coffee. Due to the thick texture and high fat content, it has a very similar feel […]
