We found out that it was hard for an average coffee enthusiast to get access to homegrown coffee from other parts of the world.
It is also tricky for them to choose and buy single specialty coffee due to the lack of guides and information.
Trusting different coffee brands is another problem that the target user faces.
Faced with the challenge of delivering high-quality coffee to consumers, a new coffee brand, “The Daily Bean” was established.
They offer a wide range of single-origin specialty coffee from various regions around the world, all of which are ethically sourced and sustainably grown. The Daily Bean goes above and beyond just selling coffee, by providing an extensive brewing guide and detailed information about each coffee variant. This complete information ensures that users have a full understanding of the product before making a purchase, making it easier for them to choose the right coffee that fits their preferences and needs.
To gain a deeper understanding of user behavior, we conducted primary research by interviewing coffee enthusiasts. This gave us the opportunity to learn directly from the target audience – GenZ and Millennials – about their purchasing behavior and preferences when it comes to choosing coffee. The interviews provided valuable insights into the key factors that these consumers consider when making a coffee purchase, such as quality, flavor, origin, and price, among others. This information helped us to better understand the needs and preferences of our target audience and tailor our offerings accordingly
