But not everyone agrees we’re reaching peak coffee shop.
Jeffrey Young, founder of Allegra, claims there will be many more coffee shops in about five years.
“There’s one fundamental driver, that’s urban densities,” he argues.
“This is happening all over the world. People are moving back to cities. Cities are becoming more vertical. Every office block of a certain size can support a coffee shop.
“The coffee shop becomes a social hub where people socialise, work, meet tinder dates… there are so many reasons, useful purposes for a coffee shop in addition to the desire to have a coffee.”
