The charm of the traditional Indian coffee industry

coffee

Introduced during British rule, coffee is now at the heart of the Indian commercial sector. Not in the distant past, almost all of the coffee produce from the plantations in India were consumed by the southern region. However, the aroma of coffee has spread to lands away from the South. It is brewed as a comfort drink, especially in the urban areas, and has become a part of the culture. The packaged coffee industry is burgeoning as a result of this.

Demand and supply patterns

Coffee producers are known to live a life of uncertainty. The quality of the produce is highly dependent on the weather. Climate change has increased the risk of untimely rains and excessive heat which are detrimental to coffee plantations. Moreover, the structure of the supply chain is highly dynamic.

The Arabica variant of the coffee bean is considered to be of the highest value and it is also the most susceptible to these changes. It requires a low temperature and superior care for a perfect growth. The availability of a favorable climate for production and a high domestic consumption helped the coffee industry flourish in southern parts of India. A majority of the production continues to happen there but the consumption patterns have changed. The introduction of modern retail outlets like cafeterias in urban areas have paved way for innovation in coffee and much more variants than the previous times are now available. Globalized café chains have also set-up their outlets in key regions of the country. Branded coffee thus dominates the market.

However, market research shows that branded coffee is a dynamic segment in terms of pricing. Although there exists a stratum that continues to be brand loyal, lowering prices and introducing offers has been a sales and marketing strategy for long. This promises no fixed income for the people involved in the production process and thus labor shortage is a major trouble in the coffee industry. Nurturing the crops till their complete-growth requires a skilled and experienced workforce. But these workers tend to quit because the income is not guaranteed.

The revenue flowing in for the coffee industry is currently driven by the increased acceptance of coffee as an everyday beverage and the exclusive ranges from the various brands that provide a heightened experience for their consumers.

The food and beverages industry has observed a lot of media influence and inspirations from the western culture in the past decades. Coffee beans are now being incorporated in more than just the regular drink. De-caffeinated coffee is gaining traction from the fitness perspective. Coffee flavor is also an add-in in a number of desserts and is thus gaining popularity in other forms.
