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.
