Luckin Coffee is a coffee chain in China. The company was founded by Qian Zhiya in Beijing in October 2017. Most of its stores are small “pick-up” stores that locate in office buildings or college campuses that serve for online orders’ pickup and delivery.

Luckin Coffee connects its operation with technology tightly and makes the process of selling, producing, and delivery simple and fast. Luckin Coffee did not open any traditional brick-and-mortar stores in the beginning. Its physical locations were only for making coffees and fulfilling online orders picked up by customers or delivery persons. Although most of its stores do not have seats or other services for customers, the target customers of Luckin Coffee are white-collar workers and students near the stores who do not have much time to drink coffee at stores.

(NBEV) New Age Beverages & (WMT) Walmart

News from New Age Beverages (NASDAQ:NBEV) that it had signed distribution deal with Walmart (NYSE:WMT), its first national arrangement, couldn’t help but put some fizz in the NBEV stock price.

“This is just the first initiative that we expect to do with them on the Marley brand and other New Age products on which we are in active discussions,” said Craig Thibodeau, New Age’s VP of Key Accounts, in the press release. 

It’s a big deal for sure. And Walmart expects a lot, as InvestorPlace contributor Will Healy noted in January, advising that all owners of NBEV stock might want to reconsider their expectations in the weeks and months ahead.

Thanks to the Walmart deal and NBEV’s $85 million acquisition of Morinda Holdings, CEO Brent Willis expects revenue to grow to around $320 million in 2019. Of course, he didn’t say how much it will lose.

Hybrid Coffee Shop–Wine Bar

The Hybrid Coffee Shop–Wine Bar Is My Favorite Place to Drink Right Now ~ From bon appetit

Some might say I spend too much time in coffee shops. And others might argue I spend too much time in bars. Whether or not they’re right, I’m happy to say that I’ll be cutting my time in half.

Why? How? Not because I’ll be drinking fewer cortados or saisons, but because local beers, natural wines, and dialed-in cocktails are cropping up all over coffee shop menus. The espresso joints I already love are turning into my favorite places to grab a drink at night.

And it makes sense that groovy alcoholic drinks are showing up on coffee shop menus. The commitment to quality booze mirrors the terroir-driven coffees sold at third-wave coffee joints, so it’s no surprise that those who put care into choosing organic Kenyan coffee are geeking out over biodynamic Riesling.

But it’s also about the money. “Having high alcohol margins allows us to keep our coffee affordable and get customers in the door more than once a day,” says Andrew Trautman, one of the owners of Remedy House in Buffalo.

Remedy House – Buffalo, NY

Yeah, let’s start with Remedy house, because this place absolutely rules. The espresso drinks are exceptional, made with beans from a rotating list of roasters, and whether you want a cocktail or a glass of wine, beer, or amaro, you’ll get a good one here.

The wine list features local natural winemakers like Liten Buffel, as well as bottles from places farther afield, including France and Slovenia. The beer list is constantly changing and filled with New York craft brewers. And the spritzes coming from behind the bar are always in-season, even with a couple feet of Buffalo snow.
