Today, the fastest growing demographic of coffee drinkers is millennials aged 13-18. This age group is very interested in new trends and fads that are on the rise. In order to attract to more of this generation of coffee drinkers, cafes and coffee shops are taking advantage of these new 2018 trends. 

Cold Brew

In 2017, iced coffee was a huge hit among many coffee drinkers. Today, cold brew is taking the lead. Cold Brew is currently the most popular cold coffee beverage in coffee shops across North America. Cold Brew is stronger than iced coffee and is easy to make in larger batches. 


Cold Brew can be bought in a coffee shop or cafe, or you can also purchase it bottles in stores. When it comes to coffee shops, the best places to go for cold brew are:

Starbucks

You can purchase a cold brew at Starbucks the same way you would buy an iced coffee. Starbucks also sells bottles of cold brew in stores to engage even more of the coffee market. 

If you’d rather purchase a bottle in a store, and want to try something other than Starbucks, here are some of the best brands:


Chameleon Cold Brew: This company is based out of Texas and uses high quality beans. Anther benefit is that it comes in different flavors. You can purchase these bottles on Amazon for around $4.00 each. 

High Brew Double Espresso: Their original formula (Double Espresso) is a simple mix that is very strong, but never bitter. They can be purchased on Amazon for less than $2.00 each. 


Coffee Cocktails 
Many people are starting to get on board with coffee cocktails. The idea of coffee mixed with alcohol may be a turn off for some people, but die-hard coffee lovers are going all out. Bartenders and coffee advocates are taking things a little further than Kahlua or Irish Cream. If you feel that you might enjoy these drinks here are a few recipes we though you might like:

Siciliano: To make this, you mix vermouth, amaro, coffee and simple syrup. Add some ice and club soda, and some orange for garnish. Recipe by Bon Appetit. 

Gort’s Reprieve Irish Coffee: Stir coffee, whiskey, liqueur, simple syrup, and bitters into a glass. Top with whipped cream, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice and garnish with mint and coffee beans. Recipe by Drink. Well., Austin. 

Anatolia Cafe: Mix pierre ferrand 1840 cognac, luxardo cherry liqueur, and cinnamon syrup coffee together in a glass and top with whipped cream and cinnamon. Recipe by Eastern Standard. 


Artisan Roasters 

When it comes to craft beer, small, local breweries are known for making small batches of insanely good beer. This similar outlook is also popping up in the coffee industry. Artisan roasters put an emphasis on supporting local. Some of the qualities of artisan roasters include the origin of the coffee and an understanding an appreciation for local products. They are also known for their sustainable farming practices and high quality bean selection and insightful roasting techniques. 

Artisan roasters are a unique experience that many coffee drinkers are sure to enjoy. Basically, you can visit a Starbucks or Tim Horton’s from most places across the globe. But, artisan roasters give you a completely different experience of tasting something that was made with care out of local ingredients.

Some people may think that it takes a lot of time and effort to actively motivate your staff, this is , in fact, not true. While some people are self-motivating, not everyone has that ability. Many people rely on a motivating workplace to be motivated. Motivating environments allow people to push themselves harder and overall makes their daily work life much more enjoyable.


There are many different ways in which you can motivate your staff daily uses some of these helpful suggestions.


Provide Incentives

Incentives are always a good way to boost motivation in the workplace. Incentives don’t have to be huge, they can be simple things that will let the employee know you care. Some great incentives include, paid days off, holiday bonus, or any other low-cost way you can show your employees your appreciation.

Opportunities for Advancement

Most people aren’t going to be fully motivated knowing there is nowhere for them to move up in their position. Giving the opportunity to move up in the company is a way of rewarding employees for their good work. This can make a huge difference in motivation.

Give Meaningful Work

People are not going to be motivated in any kind of way if they feel that the work they are doing is meaningless and not worth their time. Make sure you are giving all of your employees meaningful work so that they know they are playing an important role in the business.

Make Everyone’s Opinion Heard

Don’t Micromanage 

Stand back and let your employees do their job. No one like to have their boss standing over their shoulder and breathing down their neck. This drives people crazy and is in no way motivating them.

Inventory is a huge aspect of any business. It can be the reason for profits, or the reason for losses. Improper tracking of inventory can turn assets into liabilities. Properly managing inventory can be difficult, it is challenging to determine the best way for you to keep track of inventory. In order for a business to stay accurate and up to date with their inventory, below are three of the biggest inventory mistakes managers are making today.


Failure to Forecast


How can you forecast for the future if you don’t know the current levels of your on hand inventory? You can’t! It is essential to know what your future demands may be, therefore you must forecast. If you have been properly tracking your inventory for a long period of time, it makes it a lot easier to look back and find out what your future demands may be. For example, if you just assume that everyday you’re going to sell 10 grape sodas, but in actuality, you sell a completely different amount each day of the week. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday you’re making more sales of grape sodas, the rest of the week you’re barely selling any. This is important information to know when you make orders. If you’re getting orders on Wednesday, after the weekend you may not have any sodas left in stock after a busy  weekend. Forecasting this information is so important.

Knowing the trends and what you’re selling more of on which days is going to give you a better chance at meeting demand, which will then lead to more profits. It is easy to forecast once you have previous information on other sales. This is going to help you out a lot in the long run of your company and make ordering very simple.


No Automation

If you are still using pen and paper to track your inventory, you’re doing it all wrong. You need to have a real time inventory management software that will allow you to be completely accurate and up to date with all your inventory. An automated system will allow for multiple users to have access at any given time, at multiple locations. Automated inventory gives you real time data and makes it very simple to find errors or to update amounts.

Automating your process will cut tremendous time when it comes to taking inventory. It will also allow you to find your biggest wasters and find where you need to make improvements. An automated systems will save you tons of money in the long run as it is so much simpler and g=can give you accurate information that you can;t get from a manual paper count.




Unqualified/Improperly Trained Employees


Inventory can be a tedious task for employees at any kind of business. It is important that whoever is taking inventory is doing it correctly. Often times, employees may not be trained properly or may be unqualified for inventory. The lack of a formal training on how to take inventory from the start of the employees time with the company can lead to them making mistakes into the future. This can lead to inaccurate data that may have a huge impact on the company as a whole.


In order to prevent this, it is important to set up a formal training session for all employees who may be taking inventory. It is important for them to be able to have guidance and assistance when they take inventory for the first couple of times until they become familiar enough to confidently do it themselves. Three important things to remember when it comes to having the right people take inventory are hiring the right people, holding inventory managers accountable, and, as stated above, emphasize training from the start.

Have you ever started watching a 3D printer in action and become mesmerized by how awesome it is? Imagine if after the printer is finished, you could eat what it printed!!!


3D Food Printing is a huge new trend in the technology of food. Instead of printing plastic, they print using edible ingredients. 3d printing food allows for saving time and effort. You load up the machine and let it do the job for you. They print in layers that build up on top of each other.

The Chef/Designer uses software to create a design, they then send it to the printer and wait for it to be done!


You can make many types of foods using these printers, such as: chocolate, candies, pasta, pizza, and so much more! When it comes to the types of food that can and can’t be printed, basically, if it can be pureed, it can be printed. The printers are perfect for decorating cakes and cookies. They also allow people to create amazing 3D pieces of edible art!


There are different types of printers available depending on what kind of food you are printing! There are even some restaurants around that use these printers for some or all of their food! Food ink is the world’s first 3D printed restaurant.

The possibilities of this process can allow for more diverse foods to be create. Coming from a printer, it is now possible for food to taker on a more artistic representation that may not be achievable by hand. 3D printing food is faster than regular 3D printing, however, it still isn’t fast enough for any sort of mass production.
