Blendly Barista Distributors – The Core of the Millennial’s Generation

Here at Blendly we understand that markets are made up of people and that people love great coffee. With so many people having their own special flavours and rituals, we celebrate the customer and the consumers that are driving change choice and value.

Millennials are “core” in businesses. This is the millennial moment, long expected and feared by companies that built their brands for baby boomers. They are ageing and their offspring, once called the “echo boom”, are no longer teenagers, or even students.

Pew Research Center, the US research group, defines millennials as the 73M Americans aged between 22 and 37, who will next year overtake boomers in number. “We don’t think of them as special or different any more. They are the core of our business,” says Alan Jope, president of beauty and personal care at Unilever.

The coming of age of the world’s 2BN millennials is not only a generational shift: it is one of ethnicity and nationality. Forty three per cent of US millennials are non-white, and millennials in Asia vastly outnumber those in Europe and the US.

Millennials text with young woman holding a tablet computer in a chair

Despite China’s former one-child policy, it has 400M millennials, more than five times the US figure (and more than the entire US population) while Morgan Stanley estimates that India’s 410M millennials will spend $330BN annually by 2020.

Millennials have reached what the bank calls “the most important age range for economic activity”, when households are formed, babies are born and money is spent not just on going out but on settling down. Simon Isaacs, co-founder of Fatherly, an information and e-commerce site for millennial parents, cites family camping as one of its most popular topics. “That does extremely well for us. They like to buy cool family tents and share videos of their trips.” The world has changed. Millennials want these little brands, local brands Nelson Peltz, activist investor This reflects the depth to which technology is integrated into millennials’ lives and habits.

The oldest were teenagers at the time of the Netscape initial public offering in 1995, as the internet became a mass medium, and the youngest was 11 when the Apple iPhone was launched in 2007.

They are used not only to communicating online but buying most things there: $25BN was spent on Alibaba’s Singles Day online shopping festival in China on November 11. Big companies have scrambled to adjust to millennial tastes. “Local, original, and what they can feel and trust are all good.

Maybe there is a bit of a reaction to globalisation,” says Laurent Freixe, who heads Nestlé’s US and America’s business, “Organic, natural, and non-GMO are crystallising in the US very fast.” Nestlé last year bought the Blue Bottle chain of coffee shops and in May signed a $7.1BN licensing deal with Starbucks to refresh its Nescafé and Nespresso brands.

Why Baristas Are the Basis for Innovation and Growth in Speciality Coffee

The coffee roasting industry of Italy, and why it has been slow to adapt to what it called the “new coffee era”. Coffee is basically quintessentially Italian, but it has remained behind Americans in innovating and making it the global product that it is today.

Since the birth of Starbucks, the coffee industry has not changed in hundreds of years, but it took the Seattle-born company, and other companies such as Nestle to change the way coffee is served. Specifically:

  • An Italian developed the first espresso machine, but a Swiss firm, Nestlé,
    conquered the market for personal espresso-makers with its Nespresso system.
  • Starbucks was inspired by founder Howard Schultz’ visit to cafes in Milan, but he revolutionized it to provide fast service and social ambience.

Today, Italy’s coffee firms are trying to grab more of the global industry for themselves. There is a movement towards mergers between large coffee manufacturers and roasters from Italy, and homegrown brands from other countries. For example:

  • Lavazza, Italy’s biggest coffee firm, buying Douwe Egberts’ Carte Noire premium brand for €800m ($870m), making it the market leader in France.
  • The initial public offering of 40% of Massimo Zanetti, to raise capital for expansion. Zanetti owns a score of brands, including Boncafé, an Asian roaster; and is buying a stake in Club Coffee, a Canadian firm with which it has developed compostable capsules.

Another noteworthy fad in the industry is the curiosity for the “science” of coffee-making—improving grinding methods, better monitoring of water quality, and so on. Illy caffé was an early innovator, having pioneered the use of pressurised cans when most others were still selling coffee in paper bags.

More so the high street is becoming aware of what is going into their daily coffee and have a better understanding of taste and cost, – Today’s coffee customer understand more about the coffee and the Baristas that serve it

What seems to be the core strength of today’s top coffee roasters is disappearing with no real differentiation in the process, of roasting coffee – Coffee is more about education and presentation and understanding the needs of a new type of coffee customer that are queuing to drink it new types of coffee blends that large chains have trouble producing, And with greater volumes passing through independent chains and, baristas representing an important part of this new supply chain –

And with greater volumes passing through independent chains and, baristas representing an important part of this new supply chain – There understanding of the customer is part on a New age of coffee production

Baristas working with Blendly have access to the production and manufacturing services and can advise the new type of coffee chain on cost and taste, – Blendly Services have been developed around the economies of choice allowing greater transparency around the coffee offering

Working as a Blendly Barista Distributor – Coffee is Changing

The coffee industry has traditionally distributed coffee in volumes to intermediaries and distributors. They then resell the coffee to outlets and other coffee users. These volumised coffees offer a traditional taste and service built around traditional production and manufacturing services that are based on economies of scale.

However, Blendly production and manufacturing services have been developed around the economies of choice and as palates are changing none more so than how we enjoy coffee, with more people purchasing barista style machines for their homes and purchasing more and more international origin coffees and customers are expecting more. This fits more into the modern world –

Moving away from one taste fits all. 

Blendly offers a service for coffee shops and coffee lovers to better engage this new growing market and better serve customers that are looking for their products that are looking for more unique taste that are fresher, quicker and better, allowing the coffee to be blended to order delivered fresh within a few days of roasting – that’s customisable, allowing the Baristas to better influence and develop local tastes and flavours.

This service is in more and more in demand with the high street moving away from pre-blended coffee, the industry is in the curiosity for the “science” of coffee making—improving grinding methods, better monitoring of water quality, and the types of beans that make up blends, allowing customers to better identify with taste and content of what they are drinking.

This type of transparency is allowing independent coffee chains to better establish their local brands in a growing marketplace which currently supplies approximately 165 million cups of tea and around 70 million cups of coffee that is consumed in the UK each day, according to the UK Tea Council. The market for hot beverages can be considered extremely robust.

As commentators see the high street is transforming from a pure shopping destination to a centre for “leisure and services” as the dramatic in the number of coffee shops, it offers Blendly Referral distributors and Training distributors to help customers get better value from their fresh coffee helping independent coffee chains and local coffee shops to better develop their brand around individual coffee blends.
