We all have those mornings where we wake up feeling over tired and lethargic, when our ‘get up and go’ appears to have ‘got up and gone’. What do we swear by on mornings like these? More coffee than usual, as a rule! A couple of cups of freshly brewed coffee in a morning soon have us firing on all cylinders, ready to face the day ahead. Coffee is symbolic of that early morning kick-start that reinvigorates us, encouraging a productive day. Oh, and it tastes amazing too!
The nation’s love affair with coffee over recent years has seen a huge increase in home coffee machines sales. The domestic coffee market has seen a growth of £17m in the last five years, from 2008 to 2012. Now, one in every five British households prepares their morning espressos, cappuccinos and lattes in the comfort of their own kitchen. The trusty old kettle has taken a dip in sales as a result and, in what has long been a Nation of tea drinkers, less than 8 out of 10 British homes now owns a kettle.
Unsurprisingly, the rise in home coffee machines has attributed to a vast increase in demand for coffee capsules, with more and more home users favouring them over coffee beans. And it’s quite clear to see why. Capsules provide consistent high quality espresso, they are simple to use, easy to store and there’s zero wastage. Another advantage is that they don’t require accessories such as grinders and tampers, creating more space in the kitchen and espresso in seconds. Simply pop the capsule directly into your coffee machine and press a button. Perfect espresso every time!
