Quality and convenience are the driving forces behind the top coffee trends of 2022. The coffee market must provide options that taste great, are easy to whip together, and are healthful for patrons' bodies and the planet.
After a year of silence, shopkeepers' bells chimed again as customers trickled back through cafe doors. They came slowly at first, then in droves, but they arrived with different tastes and expectations than before. Enduring an ongoing pandemic heightened public health awareness.
Patrons are cutting coffee drinks laden with artificial colors, sugar and cow's milk in favor of simple and ethically sourced coffee and tea beverages enriched with plant-based ingredients.
When people choose to visit a coffee shop in 2022, they will make up for the lost time by staying longer and ordering more. However, quarantines cemented the importance of off-premise business models.
Many of today's coffee and tea consumers drink their beverages at home or on the go, so businesses should diversify their e-commerce and takeaway options. From drink trends to the evolution of coffeehouse culture, discover what is in store for the coffee and tea market in 2022.
Quality and convenience are the driving forces behind the top coffee trends of 2022. The average American consumes two cups of coffee a day. They are making at least one of those two cups at home and many want fast options they can grab on the go for cup No. 2. However, people aren't willing to sacrifice sustainable sourcing and flavor. The coffee market must provide options that taste great, are easy to whip together, and are healthful for patrons' bodies and the planet.
Here are the following top coffee trends of 2022.Instant Coffee
Consumers seeking instant coffee have different interests and needs than pourover enthusiasts. Before transitioning to remote work, this crowd grabbed coffee at a drive-through or used their break room's Keurig.
They seek speed, savings and convenience, but they don't want to sacrifice flavor. Premium instant coffee as liquid coffee concentrates, ready-to-drink cans of coffee and coffee powders will be the hottest coffee trends of 2022.

Single origin coffee
Single origin coffee, also known as single source coffee, is harvested from a single crop, country or region and carries the unique flavor notes of its origins. Today's coffee consumer cares about ethical procurement, unique flavor experiences, coffee tourism and sustainability. Tracing beans back to their grower allows you to confirm that they are fair trade, sustainable and organic.
Single origin coffee beans cost more than coffee blends, but their retail value is far greater. Coffee drinkers will pay 200% more for roasts with a clear origin country. The more information you can provide about your single origin selections, the better. Customers want to engage with the region and culture that made their beverage, and they appreciate seeing their purchase support a small farm.
