The COVID-19 pandemic caused out-of-home coffee consumption to fall in the United States, and while it has recently increased, it has yet to return to the levels seen prior to the pandemic. However, a recent report found nationwide coffee consumption is actually the highest it has been in the last 20 years, likely due to elevated rates of at-home consumption. Specialty coffee consumption is also at a five-year high, which — combined with high levels of at-home consumption — is great for online retailers.
If you run a coffee roastery or a coffee brand, using ecommerce to sell your products can be a great way to connect with your existing customers, especially through subscription boxes, and to reach new shoppers. However, in order to build and run an ecommerce site, you’ll probably need an application to help you create and manage your store. Fortunately, Shopify is packed with amazing features, including a point-of-sale (POS) system you can use to sell coffee and accessories pretty much anywhere in the world. Plus, Shopify comes with a free trial, so you can test it out before making a long commitment, and there are loads of stylish Shopify templates you can use to give your shop a polished look, including several themes designed especially for coffee brands!
