With so much marketing and product innovation energy being directed toward the under-40 crowd, it’s important to keep in mind that today’s Gen X and Boomers are still major players in coffee and tea beverage sales. In fact, according to the National Coffee Association, coffee consumption continues to skew older. For the 60+ age group, coffee has increased from 64% in 2016 to 72% in 2018 and remained steady in 2019. Additionally, in specialty/gourmet daily coffee consumption – Boomers showed the largest growth from 2016 to 2017 of all age groups. So, make sure you offer more than just regular and decaffeinated Arabica coffees – boomers want dark roasts, single origin options, LTO flavors, and more!
