Westminster, CO, February 01, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The growing trends in specialty coffees was highlighted in TraceGains’ recent blog. Chelsey Davis, TraceGains’ Digital Specialist noted that the National Coffee Association’s National Coffee Drinking Trends market research showed daily consumption of espresso-based beverages and regular coffee made with gourmet coffee beans is up to 34%, compared to 31% in the 2013 data, and daily non-gourmet coffee drinking is down 35% from the previous year’s 39%. Leading the consumption of specialty coffee drinks are 25- to 39-year-olds, 42% of which reported daily usage.
According to Davis, “Specialty coffee beverages not only build check and add menu news to the fast-growing breakfast day part. The drinks also provide plentiful opportunity for flavor innovation. For the winter months, Dunkin’ has launched a sugar cookie latte, featuring the flavor of frosted sugar cookies topped with red and green sugar crystals; and the snickerdoodle cookie latte, which combines flavors of sugar and cinnamon with a whipped cream and cinnamon topping. Peppermint mocha coffees and lattes also are returning for the season.”
