Coffee capsules sales rise globally in past five years: Blue Pod
Sales of coffee capsules have surged worldwide over the past five years with retail volume in the US increasing by 523% from 2006 to 2011, according to Australia-based Blue Pod Coffee.
The company is an exclusive importer of Lavazza Blue and Espresso Point coffee capsules, from small desk top coffee machines, espresso coffee makers, coffee vending machines to larger commercial style espresso machines and coffee machines. All use the Lavazza capsule system.
Blue Pod Coffee director Brian Chaitman said that in Australia sales of coffee capsule machines rose by 82% over the past one year.
"Retail sales of espresso machines reached 500,000 units in 2011-12," Chaitman added.
"With consumers increasingly leading on-the-go lifestyles, coffee capsules are a quick and easy way to enjoy quality coffee at home or work. Coffee capsule machines allow consumers to brew a single serve cup of coffee similar in quality to the coffee purchased in local cafés."
Blue Pod Coffee, a member of the National Vending Association, offers free on loan coffee machines to homes and businesses using coffee capsule system.
The company operates in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and country areas. It employs over 50 staff and has 15,000 customers in Australia.
