As reported by Harperâ€™s Bazaar, the number of coffee shops in the UK is set to overtake the number of pubs by 2030.
The Wine and Spirits Trade Association values the on-trade wine industry at Â£4.2 billion, and the on-trade spirits industry at Â£5.8 billion, while the coffee industry in the UK is estimated to be worth Â£8.9 billion.
A staggering 2.3 billion cups of coffee are served in the UK each year, with the value of the industry rising by 12% in the last year. The research implies that coffee culture may soon overtake the UKâ€™s long loved drinking culture, with pubs closing at a similar rate to coffee shops opening.
Clean living millennials drink less alcohol than the previous generation and are ditching pub crawls in favour of juice crawls and drunkenness for mindfulness.
