Background Information
Espresso yourself: A shift in demand towards boutique goods and services is favouring niche
operators.

“Australia’s coffee culture has supported the Coffee Shops industry’s growth over the past five years.
As coffee drinking has continued to grow in popularity, the number of small boutique coffee houses has
increased over the period, particularly in inner-city locations where office workers congregate. Coffee
drinking has become entrenched in the daily routines of many Australian consumers, supporting
industry demand. As a result, industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 1.4% over the five
years through XXXXXXXXXX, to $4.6 billion. This includes expected revenue growth of 1.4% in the cu
ent
year. Industry competition has intensified over the past five years as more operators have entered.”

Case for Analysis
The Huber family moved from Switzerland to Australia over ten years ago and set up a coffee shop. To
supplement and enhance this business, they have been making premium hand-made coffee based
chocolates from their home in Brisbane for the last five years. They sell both in the coffee shop and
from home. They have established a strong group of customers comprised of members of the general
public and small businesses such as restaurants and cafes. They make their coffee products from both
dairy and non-dairy products, and most of their products are gluten-free. Their range of products
includes cappuccino, Swiss roll, Mini mocha cupcakes, Skinny Latte yoghurt and a
oad range of
coffee-based chocolates.
Swiss rolls sell for $23, mocha cupcakes are $7, latte yoghurts are also $7 with each chocolate selling
for $3. They also cu
ently sell their coffee chocolates in various assortments of 12 for $18 and 25 for
$35. Each year, demand has grown for their product and last year XXXXXXXXXXthey made an annual
profit of $136,000. Their accountant has been advising the Hubers to expand their business and to
move production to commercial premises. Using their own funds together with a small loan from the
ank they have purchased a shop in the main street of their local shopping centre where they can now
manufacture their coffee products in the rear commercial kitchen area, store them in special
efrigerated cabinets and sell from the shop at the front. Sales will commence in the new premises in
July 2020.
The youngest Huber son, Luca, who has just finished his Bachelor of Business degree at Kaplan in
Brisbane believes that the family are still thinking “too small”. He studied Logistics and Supply Chain
Management as part of his degree, and he knows that Amazon, the biggest retailer in the world, has
ecently started operating in Australia. He believes that there is a massive untapped market for the
premium coffee products that his family produces and that selling them using the Amazon online
platform is a simple and effective way to attract new customers and stimulate production.
