we see social media abound with trend prediction for the new year. Most of these reports are written by human analysts based on what happened in the last year and their own experiences.

We at AI Palette love coffee, after all ‘the powers of a man’s mind are directly proportioned to the quantity of coffee he drinks’. So we decided to use our Trendspotting AI algorithm to see what can we expect in the coffee scene in Singapore in 2019. Here are the top 3 trends predicted by Artificial Intelligence:

1.Indonesian Exotic Coffee: Mandheling & Toraja from Indonesia have satisfied the taste buds of coffee lovers for years. Now the coffee connoisseurs are craving for more exotic variants. Wamena Coffee from Papua & Kerinci Jambi coffee from Sumatra both will be in demand because of their distinctive aroma and unique taste.

2. Colours: There was a time when coffee used to be just black or brown, not anymore. Expect colourful drinks in 2019 — Blue, Pink, Yellow and more to satisfy the Instagram generation.

3. Blend Coffee: Coffee aficionados love tasting single origin coffees because of the different nuances in those coffees, like Brazilian coffee offers great mouthfeel where as Mexican Altura is good for aftertaste. But if you mix two different single origins you get a complete & balanced drink. Combinations like Sumatra coffee & Kenyan coffee also called East meets West will gain popularity.

Bonus trend — Cold Brew: Cold brew & its variants like nitro cold brew have been very popular in the last year, expect different types of cold brew like Kyoto coffee and others to gain popularity and keep the trend growing.

Looks like 2019 is going to be an exciting year for Coffee Lovers.”
