One Third Of Irish Consumers Purchase Takeaway Coffee Regularly

Half of Irish consumers buy take-away coffee at least once a month while a third of consumers purchase take-away coffee at least once a week, according to the latest Consumer Insights report from Empathy Research.

A third of take-away coffee drinkers say they are buying less take-away coffee compared to a year ago. This was significantly higher amongst females (38% vs. 31% males) and participants with children (44% vs. 23% without kids). Two-fifths (40%) of 35-44 year olds buy less coffee than they did last year.
