BUYERS' GUIDE COFFEE CAPSULE MACHINES STATE OF PLAY The capsule coffee machine market is split between luxury lifestyle brands based around famous coffee labels and relatively new entries leveraging manufacturing heritage. Developed markets are also seeing major retailers launching their own capsule coffee systems. MARKET The overall Western European market for coffee and espresso machines is becoming tougher, having registered declining value sales for the first half of the year, despite a slight growth in terms of volume. Single-serve Espresso machines were the only segment which saw improved sales, driven by double-digit growth in Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. KEY SELLING POINTS TECHNOLOGY Nineteen bars of water pressure is becoming standard for capsule coffee makers, which is stronger than some of the best manual coffee machines on the market. Capsules are often available online for homedelivered convenience and there is the option of buying cheaper, ‘home brand’ style capsules for most major systems, for price-sensitive customers. Home carbonation At least two major brands are looking to integrate home carbonation to their capsule coffee machines, meaning the same appliance could be used to make a piping-hot espresso and an ice-cold glass of lemonade. FEATURES Accessories There is a vast array of accessories available, presenting excellent cross-selling opportunities. Specially sized cups, stirrers, capsule holders and carousels, milk frothers and complementary foodstuffs are among the most attractive options for bumping up sales. Disc-shaped capsules are available for manual coffee machines, meaning consumers can hone their barista skills with a prepared portion before moving on to grinding and tamping their own doses. Coffee is by far the most popular drink While research shows that coffee is by far the most popular drink and the main motivation for purchase, some systems also offer tea and hot chocolate, as well as readymade cappuccinos and cafe lattes through the use of milk capsules. DESIGN Access to an ecosystem Customers don’t just buy machines that make fresh and delicious cups of coffee; they buy access to an ecosystem. Coffee flavours sold by the machine manufacturer often come with elaborate narratives and elegant packaging to make the customer feel extra special. Cooking appliance brands have started developing their own capsule coffee machine systems, meaning customers have the option of a machine that matches the design of their oven, hob and dishwasher. There are now also integrated capsule machines for the truly luxurious. Partnerships with famous drinks, snacks and cafe brands have broadened these machines’ appeal.
