    Taking the plunger: our coffee breaks in peril

    Nothing really new here. Sounded like the reporter needed something to write about when arguments over a rusty ute and leaky public servants are dominating the news but...

    AFTERNOON coffee breaks could be the latest casualty of the economic downturn.

    As jobless losses mount, industry analysts have predicted caffeine lovers will try to save money by limiting their coffee consumption to just one a day.

    "Were still getting our coffee, but instead of having a couple every day or a couple every few days were just going to have one," an analyst at BIS Shrapnel, Tim Emmerson, said.

    The chief executive of Restaurant & Catering NSW, Robert Goldman, said the coffee industry could not escape economic hard times. "Does it have an impact on the first cup of coffee? Obviously not. But it does make an impact on that second one. And in many offices they have instant coffee now."


    ...etc

    "Were still getting our coffee, but instead of having a couple every day or a couple every few days were just going to have one," an analyst at BIS Shrapnel, Tim Emmerson, said.
    This guy says his colleauges from up to 2 a day to as few as less than 1 a day.
    What kind of authority is that? They hardly drink enough to cut back.
    I think it was his turn for 15 minutes of fame.

    First-home buyers in particular were reducing their coffee intake, Mr Goldman said. "They just bought a home and decide, Ill make a saving and I wont by that second cup." The savings would add up to at least $15 a week and $60 a month, he said.

    First home buyers might; my daughter is one and every cent counts for them, but they arent the majority of the population.

    Contrary to the analyst at BIS Shrapnel, both Toby Smith and Will Young (closer to the coffee drinkers) say their business is increasing.
