HN talks to the coffee experts to know more about the latest coffee trends.

 What are the latest coffee trends?
The market today demands products that are sustainability sourced. There has also been a revolution when it comes to milk: almond, oat and soy milk, for example. This has extended to trendy lattes, like matcha, turmeric and rose.

What coffee shops trends have you noticed?
More specialty coffee shops are opening and offering a variety of high-grade coffee beans and alternative coffee brewing, such as syphon, cold brew, cezve and nitro. Furthermore, the drive-thru concept is becoming more popular.

Are there any online coffee seminars that you would recommend?
Many individuals and influencers are using their social media channels to promote different preparation methods and excellence in coffee. I recommend the Coffee in Good Spirits Championship.

How do you think Covid-19 has impacted the coffee industry?
No one was prepared for this pandemic. All competitions and exhibitions have been canceled, and it is not clear when things will resume.

What are the latest coffee trends?
One trend to emerge from this crisis has been the home barista. We have also seen dalgona coffee becoming more popular.

What coffee shops trends have you noticed?
Ultimately, coffee shops that offer a delivery service are becoming more relevant given the current situation.

Are there any online coffee seminars that you would recommend?
There are a lot of online seminars these days. Although I think they are a good way of educating people, I don’t believe they are in any way as good as live sessions. The Specialty Coffee Association is about education and sustainability. Becoming a member is easy, and I would strongly advise it.
