Coffee shops have risen from obscurity to ubiquity in the UK in
a remarkably short space of time. Driven by expansionist chains,
the market has benefited from the concurrence of several major
social and economic trends, which have been transforming eating
habits and changing the face of the high street.
This report examines the coffee shop market and places it in its
socio-economic context. It then goes on to assess in detail: the
consumption patterns and demographic profiles of coffee shop users;
what people like and dislike about coffee shops; how often and when
they use them; what they drink; how they perceive the major chains;
and how their at-home drinking habits inform and influence their
out-of-home choices and vice versa.
