A report from the National Coffee Association indicates that espresso consumption is on the rise, particularly within the Millennial generation.
Though I haven’t read the full report myself due to the $700 access fee, the idea that younger coffee drinkers prefer quality espresso beverages made from sustainable grown coffee beans is good news for the industry. However the one piece of bad news for this particular website is that more coffee is being consumed at cafes, whereas this site is primarily (though not entirely) about making espresso at home.
That said, the report indicates that cold brew coffee is finally catching on. I’m considering adding cold brew techniques to this website because it’s such a wonderful way to wake up during the hot summer months when a warm espresso doesn’t seem so appealing. Feel free to contact me if you have any thoughts on the matter of cold brew.
