Lecture Overview

Specialty coffee, although often burdened by coffee's "commodity" status, still needs to compete in the premium market--but is there a way to move beyond? Just like our understanding of "specialty" has changed, so too, has our understanding of "luxury." What can specialty learn from "New Luxury" and its relationship to culture? Dr. Thomaï Serdari explains the role of cultural pioneers and some of the ways luxury brands are attracting them, with recommendations for specialty brands interested in leveraging the magic of luxury.
