Colwood coffee shop says one quarter of customers don’t buy coffee

Some people stop in just for the food

Not everyone that goes into a coffee shop is there for a caffeine fix, according to John Krottner.

The co-owner of Pilgrim Coffee House on Sooke Road in Colwood, says that 25 per cent of the customers don’t purchase a caffeinated beverage.

Krottner said at Pilgrim, approximately 10 per cent of customers buy decaffeinated coffee. For some, they may just like the taste and not need that caffeine kick.

Still, 75 per cent of his customers come in to enjoy a caffeinated beverage.
