The State of Private Brand Coffee

Given the circumstances created by an open market, it has become increasingly easier for people to gain direct access to green coffee, an important step in maximizing the profitability of Private Brand. Furthermore, Private Brand seems to be pretty recession-proof, and it is also one of the key ways in which everyone, from local roasters to the big commercial coffee companies, can cash in on the consumer’s desire to buy specialty coffee – something unique and/or associated with a prestigious name. What this all adds up to is approximately a 20% share of specialty coffee sales. By all means, private label is going to remain a significant movement in the coffee industry.
