Travelers Value Good Coffee at Hotels and Airbnbs, Survey Says
When many go to work, they rely on a hot cup of coffee for that essential energy boost that will get them through their workday. Some might be surprised to learn that coffee drinkers also consider the beverage to be essential when traveling, especially when it comes to where they stay.
A recent survey by Clio Coffee — a provider of a pod coffee system — found that nearly 60% of respondents said that the availability of a good cup of coffee at an Airbnb rental or hotel was important to them, since a satisfying option is not always found on the road. But the company also determined from the results that a luxurious cup of coffee is not always available at the places they stay.
Instead, the survey showed that 50% of the respondents always or sometimes bring their own coffee when traveling. In addition, 48.3% of respondents said that at-home coffee was better than café coffee, with 41% saying that the biggest reason for this was the comfort and love of their morning ritual.
Clio, which wants to help ensure travelers enjoy good coffee on the road and during their Airbnb stays, is launching its new “SuperHosts, SuperBrew” program, which invites all Airbnb SuperHosts to have a free Clio Brewer in their homes. “More often than not, the quality of the coffee machine in your hotel room mirrors the quality of your stay,” the company says.
“At Clio, we believe the best Airbnb hosts offer the best coffee. Period,” it continues. “So we’re making it easier for hosts to do so. We want to help them elevate their guests’ morning routine with ease and are excited to upgrade as many SuperHosts as we can with a Clio Brewer and pods, so that guests across America have access to a five-star coffee experience when staying at an Airbnb.”
