Nestlé’s Wireless Coffee Machines: Bringing Specialty Coffee out of the Coffeehouse

Julian-McClellanAnalyst Insight by Julian McClellan - Research and Consulting Intern

When people think about wireless technology, smart phones, laptops, or routers (that magic box that gives you Wi-Fi) usually come to mind.  Yet wireless capabilities have spread into more novel applications.  The most exciting of these uses is machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, which enables any number of connected devices to be monitored and controlled remotely.  Tesla, for example, updates their vehicles wirelessly, and companies like Nest Labs have long been pushing the concept of a “smart home” sporting a network of intelligently connected appliances and devices.  Nestlé SA is the first coffee company to extensively utilize M2M tech in coffee machines, adding significant measures of value and control for Nestlé’s professional customers, enabling the spread of specialty coffee choices, and providing an excellent case-study on how the coffee industry can utilize M2M and wireless technology.

Nestlé: expanding the scope of M2M

Nestlé’s first M2M capable machine came in 2012 with the Nespresso Zenius, a pod-based machine from Nespresso’s business line.  In the Zenius, M2M allows remote tracking of maintenance procedures, alerting staff if maintenance is required.  Machine temperature and pressure are also tracked, and can be remotely adjusted to ensure a consistent brew.  2013 saw the introduction of the Nescafé Milano Lounge model, a self-serve machine capable of brewing a variety of speciality coffee beverages.  Equipped with wireless capabilities similar to the Zenius, it also allows customers to remotely track consumption data so that they might better utilize the machine’s targeted promotion features.

Té o café: ¿Que prefieren los consumidores en el continente americano? -Parte 2: Surge una cultura de café en Latinoamérica

Espresso-machine-banner

El café es la bebida caliente de preferencia a lo largo del continente americano, con solo dos excepciones: Chile y Bolivia, donde es el té la bebida preferida por los consumidores.  La tradición, amplia disponibilidad, desarrollo de nuevas ocasiones para disfrutar de la bebida, innovación en sabores y la tendencia a la salud y bienestar están impulsando las preferencias de los consumidores hacia nuevos tipos de café y té a través de toda América y el mundo.

La región muestra diferencias significativas por país cuando se trata de hábitos de consumo, sabores, ofertas y presencia de marcas internacionales, convirtiéndolo en un mercado atractivo para los fabricantes.  La clave del éxito es entender las muchas diferencias entre los países y responder con productos que alcancen a los diversos consumidores a lo largo de la región.

Primero granos, luego instantaneo, ahora los pods

En Argentina el café instantáneo ha mostrado un crecimiento imbatible en su volumen de ventas, de un 8% en 2013 y  5% en 2014, principalmente porque los grupos sociales de bajos y medianos ingresos están demandando opciones de café de menor precio.  El creciente número de opciones también ha ayudado a la categoría a ganar nuevos consumidores a medida que los productos se vuelven más “gourmet” y los consumidores están más dispuestos a probar nuevas opciones.  Los dos principales impulsores han hecho que los consumidores presten más atención al hábito de tomar café en sus hogares.  El primero se relaciona con los beneficios para la salud de tomar café regularmente, la mejora en la concentración y los antioxidantes que contiene.  El segundo se relaciona con la continua inflación de dos dígitos que ha venido sufriendo la economía durante los últimos dos años, lo que ha llevado a los consumidores a reducir su gasto en café y restaurantes y a empezar a comprar opciones de café para consumir en sus hogares basándose en el precio.

Té o café: ¿Qué prefieren los consumidores en el continente americano? – Parte 1: El Cambiante mercado del té

Teapot-banner

LatAm-TeaEn el continente americano existen únicamente dos países en los que los consumidores prefieren el té sobre el café: Chile y Bolivia.  Nuevos productos de té y café surgen en la región y en el mundo gracias a la tradición, amplia disponibilidad, desarrollo de nuevas ocasiones para disfrutar de las bebidas, innovación en sabores y la tendencia de salud y bienestar que están impulsando las preferencias de los consumidores.

La región muestra diferencias significativas por país cuando se trata de hábitos de consumo, sabores, ofertas y presencia de marcas internacionales, convirtiéndolo en un mercado atractivo para los fabricantes.  La clave del éxito es entender las muchas diferencias entre los países y responder con productos que alcancen a los diversos consumidores a lo largo de la región.   

Beneficios para la salud impulsan las ventas de te a lo largo de la region

En Canadá, un país que ha experimentado un impacto positivo gracias a la inmigración y a la tendencia hacia bebidas más saludables entre los consumidores, el té continúa tomando impulso.  Este crecimiento ha sido favorecido principalmente por la aparición de tipos especiales de té negro y verde, apoyados por la cobertura de los medios y autoridades de salud con respecto a los beneficios del té, además de la expansión de tiendas y retailers especializadas en té como David’s Tea, que ofrecen una gran variedad de productos y ayudan a aumentar el consumo.

Tea or Coffee: What do Consumers in the Americas Prefer? - Part 2: The Rise of Coffee Culture in Latin America

Espresso-machine-banner

Coffee is the preferred drink across the Americas, with only two exceptions – Chile and Bolivia -where tea is preferred by consumers.  Tradition, expanded availability, development of new drinking occasions, flavour innovation and health and wellness trends are driving consumer preferences to new types of coffee and tea across the Americas and worldwide.

The region has significant differences by country when it comes to consumer drinking habits, tastes, offerings and the presence of international brands, making it an attractive market for manufacturers. The key to success is understanding the many differences between the countries and responding with products that reach out to the diverse consumers across the region.

First Ground, then Instant, now Pods

In Argentina instant coffee has seen upbeat growth, at 8% in 2013 and another 5% in 2014, mainly as low and middle income social groups are demanding low priced coffee options. The rising number of options also helped the category gain new consumers, as products become more “gourmet” and consumers are willing to try new options. Two main drivers have consumers paying more attention to the habit of drinking coffee in their homes. The first one is related to the health benefits of drinking coffee regularly, which improves concentration and contains antioxidants. The second reason is related to a continued double digit inflation suffered during the last two years that has led consumers to reduce their spending in cafés and restaurants, and begin buying price driven coffee variants to drink at their homes.

Doing Business in the Halal Market

The Muslim religion is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with Muslim consumers expected to reach 26 percent of the global population by 2030.

Muslim consumers seek products that cater to their religious needs and comply with Islamic requirements: from halal production process to halal labelling and packaging. The lack of permissible offerings has led to a surge in demand, as Muslims grow hungry for trendy products and services adapted to their lifestyle.

Tea or Coffee: What do Consumers in the Americas Prefer? - Part 1: The Changing Tea Market

Tea-by-countryCoffee is the preferred drink across the Americas, with only two exceptions – Chile and Bolivia -where tea is preferred by consumers.  Tradition, expanded availability, development of new drinking occasions, flavour innovation and health and wellness trends are driving consumer preferences to new types of coffee and tea across the Americas and worldwide.

The region has significant differences by country when it comes to consumer drinking habits, tastes, offerings and the presence of international brands, making it an attractive market for manufacturers. The key to success is understanding the many differences between the countries and responding with products that reach out to the diverse consumers across the region.

Health Benefits Boost Sales of Tea Across the Region

In Canada, positively impacted by immigration trends and a Tea-by-category-NA
tendency towards healthier beverages among Canadians, tea continues to pick up steam. Growth is mainly driven by specialty black teas and green teas, supported by positive media and health authorities’ coverage of tea health benefits. Fuelling the growth is the expansion of specialized tea shops and retailers, such as David’s Tea, which offer expanded assortment of products and help drive consumption levels.  

While in Chile, over the last five years, tea manufacturers and consumers have increased their respective focus and interest regarding the healthy properties of tea. From antioxidant properties to stimulant and fat burning uses, tea has become even more popular in Chile due to the added value that the product offers to its consumers. Chile was already a remarkable tea consumer country, but in the last five years, different varieties of tea, like green, red and white teas have increasingly become popular amongst different consumer sectors, but particularly women.

New Tea Concept in England Aims to Change Consumption Habits

Teapot-banner

Listen as MP3

“Brew” is a new concept currently undergoing crowd funding in England that could potentially change the way consumers drink tea. Although tea is heavily consumed in the country, much of that consumption is done in-home with tea bags. Brew aims to create a pub-like environment that puts the tea front and center, looking at new methods to brew loose-leaf tea.

Coffee a New Area of Focus for Australian Pubs

Julia-IlleraAnalyst Insight by Julia Illera - Research Analyst

View Julia Illera's profile on LinkedIn

Once anathema to drinkers, useful only for its supposed – now thoroughly disproven – sobering abilities, coffee has long moved in different circles to pubs in Australia.

Given the cross-category competition rife within the foodservice industry – fast food positioning itself against restaurants through the premium fast casual trend, specialist coffee shops branching out into breakfast and unexpected foodservice players looking to take market share from bars and pubs by selling alcohol – it shouldn’t come as a surprise that pubs in Australia would be considering diversifying their menus and appeal by offering an in-house and/or takeaway coffee option.

Indeed the lines between pubs and cafés, and even pubs and restaurants, are blurring as Australian pubs are increasingly embracing high-quality menus with a gourmet-yet-casual “cheap eat” theme. This is not restricted to midday and evening dining either; however, the real stumbling block for pubs hoping to attract the morning trade is that the brew of choice for early risers these days is more likely to be coffee rather than beer or a Bloody Mary.
