Brits spending more than ever on takeaway coffee, report claims
A report has highlighted that, through buying three takeaway coffees per week, Brits are spending an average of £530 each year to get their caffeine fix.
A report conducted by Beans Coffee Club has revealed that Brits are now “spending more than ever” on takeaway coffees.
As a result, the report claims that through buying three coffees a week (averaging at £3.40 each), British consumers are spending £530 each year on takeaway coffees alone.
According to Roast and Post, after water, coffee is the most popular drink worldwide with over 400 billion cups consumed each year. It also claims that in 2022, Brits spent over £1 billion on coffee with the average British consumer drinking two cups per day.
As of 2019, there were 25,892 coffee shops in the UK however Beans Coffee Club claims there are now more than 30,000 cafes, coffee shops, and other venues that serve coffee in the UK. It also claims that the coffee shop market is estimated to be worth £15 billion each year.
Even with the cost-of-living crisis to contend with, Beans Coffee Club has said that Brits are still willing to get their caffeine fix from takeaway coffee outlets. It also claims that leading coffee shop chains produce seven million single-use paper and plastic coffee cups a day, and despite green promises, “only one in 400 of these disposable cups is recycled”.
Suggesting a solution, Beans Coffee Club has innovated, in its own words, “bespoke coffee without the hefty price tag”.
It reports that the average takeaway latte costs £2.70, however a Beans Coffee Club espresso and milk for a Latte reportedly costs 63p. What’s more, it claims that making this switch from “fancy coffee to a savvy subscription service” could save £1,511.10 per year.
“We all love to treat ourselves to a takeaway hot drink now and again, but this really can add up. Now more than ever it is important to find coffee that is perfect for you without breaking the bank,” Fiona Jones, Co-Founder of Beans Coffee Club.
“At Beans Coffee club we offer a cost-effective solution that goes beyond supplying generic coffee to the masses, we match you to your own personal selection of coffee based on your individual taste preference.”
“Our main goal is to inspire more people to enjoy specialty coffee that is right for them, we hope to continue to grow and supply our special beans across the nation,” summarised Jones.
