What you need to know
The big stories
Global brands are meeting the rising consumer demand for coffee with added health and beauty functionality. In Western countries, whole bean coffee is growing from a retail niche into a major format. But Asia is proving to be where the big sales growth lies, and Asian coffee drinkers prioritise convenience over quality.
In the next two years
The younger generation is re-writing the 'rules' of coffee. Compared to older drinkers, they prefer their coffee colder, purer and for a wider range of usage occasions. Cold brew is set to grow in Europe and Asia has emerged as the next frontier for coffee innovators; look out for healthy texture in particular.
In five years and beyond
Fermented coffee could enhance taste, digestibility and sustainable energy levels. Producers need to invest in the sustainability of the Arabica bean, and the ""third-wave"" coffee movement will migrate from coffee shops into the home – for example, quick-fire in-home roasting of green beans may become de rigueur in the near future.
