Thanks for your article. It is very interesting. I remember a friend of mine working at Nespresso. They marketed Nespresso as a luxury brand in China. In order to differentiate from tea, they wanted to simply make coffee a high-end product, not a commodity. And tihs was successful ! We can see how Starbucks, Costa Coffee are doing well in China.

    Thanks for your comment. Nespresso has indeed marketed its brand even at a higher level in China than in other countries.

Actually, I though Costa Coffee was Chinese … there are so many Costa Coffee shops in China. Much more than in Germany for instance. I am also surpsied UBC coffee is Taiwainese. Why Starbucks and Costa are so much more succeesful than UBC ? Taiwanese should be better than Americans to understand the Chinese market. Moreover, personnally, I find Starbucks and Costa not that good and very expensive !
