How We Got To Third Wave Coffee and Peet's Plan For the Future - YouTube

First, coffee gained popularity widely, "First wave (1st wave)", appearance of instant coffee by brands such as "Folgers", "Maxwell" and "Nestle" .

Instant coffee that can easily drink coffee will be drunk a lot. A cup of coffee to drink at the company desk ... ...

Instant coffee is active when you drink coffee at home.

The instant coffee was a popular secret that was put in a convenient container such as bottle, vacuum pack, stick type etc. We adopted popular catch phrase and other strategies, and gathered popularity for a long time. However, the coffee of the "first wave" had a weak point such as being bitter and weak in flavor.

It became popular by supplementing its weak point and became "Second Wave (Second Wave)", as well as Starbucks familiar in Japan andPietts & Coffee & amp; TeaIt was a coffee shop such as.

The second wave coffee is characterized by providing freshly brewed coffee with aroma and flavor at the shop, and the time has come when the people who are seeking high quality coffee are highly acclaimed. It is said that the timing of drinking such as espresso and latte was said to be this timing, and knowledge such as bean production area and roasting method penetrated to the general people can be said to have been due to the appearance of second wave coffee.

Second-wave coffee like this will gradually expand its marketing route to supermarkets etc. We will follow the same strategy as First Wave coffee. In this situation newly emerging is coffee called "third wave (third wave)".

Based on the state of Oregon it became the main role of this waveStumptown(Stamptown) and born in ChicagoIntelligentia(Intelligentsia), which offers high quality coffee shops.

Petz says "Third Wave Coffee has evolved what Second Wave Coffee has done in a smarter way," and it is rather a state of measures to further advance the strategy of third wave coffee. In other words, the goal of "getting good delicious high-quality coffee by many people" is the same as the second wave.

It is said that what will become the subject after this is to balance the price "price" or "quality".

The biggest mass in the coffee market is a general consumer who is buying coffee in a supermarket, but will these consumers drop money in the world of high-quality, niche third-wave coffee in the future , Or will the quality continue to buy a second-wave coffee that is relatively cheap and the price is cheap, the movie is closed as the future of the coffee industry is left here.
