Some coffee twitter accounts we love

Since we print and make paper coffee cups, we feel that we are a large part of the coffee industry. We work closely with our clients and we hear all sorts of news about new coffees and teas, desserts and lots of coffee shop news.

Another way we keep in touch is through Twitter. Here are a few of our favorite coffee Twitter accounts in no particular order:

Orange Tree Coffee – https://twitter.com/OrangeTreeCoff in Cape Coral, Florida
They mostly share their Instagram posts on Twitter, which consist of great shots of their coffee truck. They have a great motto – “Taste Sunshine and Happiness in every Sip!”

PT’s Coffee Roasting – https://twitter.com/PTsCoffee in Kansas.
They post cute photos and up-to-date images like their paper coffee cup with a “I voted!” sticker on it. They post lots of images of their coffee shops, their food and coffee and once in awhile stories, related to coffee.

Blue Bottle Coffee – https://twitter.com/bluebottleroast – based in Oakland, CA, but nationally known (we have one opening in our town soon). They post tweets about their company history along with delicious pictures of coffee and pastries. Love how they show and explain their different coffee and menu items. They also call out cities they have coffee shops in.

Peet’s Coffee – https://twitter.com/peetscoffee – based in California.
We’ve been to the Peet’s in New Orleans and they have such a homey feeling that for the longest time, we thought they were a local New Orleans-only coffee shop. But they are national. They share photos of their staff at charity events and of course post images of their delicious coffee and edibles.

Delish. From Death Wish Coffee

Death Wish Coffee – https://twitter.com/DeathWishCoffee in Round Lake, NY
Just the name alone catches our attention. They have a Death Wish chocolate bar that they like to post photos of, this and their coffee images are to die for. They post links to their blog, with great stories, for instance, showing how they make their Death Wish chocolate bar!

Claire Coffee – https://twitter.com/clairecoffee based in NYC and Portland, OR
They post a lot and they share a lot from stories about friends, they share info about local concerts and lots of Instagram photos.

The Coffee Bean – https://twitter.com/TheCoffeeBean – based in California, since 1963!
They post funny things like: “All you need is love. And tea. You definitely need tea.” And they share lots of cool and colorful photos like their winter paper coffee cups, which we are totally partial to.

Wrecking Ball Coffee – https://twitter.com/Wrecking_Ball in San Francisco
They sound strong – not them,  but the coffee. Their outdoor seating is back, they explain after a long permitting process. They have gorgeous photos of their neighborhood, but how can you not get fantastic pics of San Francisco? They share their products, too.

Laughing Many Coffee Company – https://twitter.com/laughingmanco in NYC.
They post fun photos – of Halloween, of their products, of their groovy black paper cups. And they share links to founder David Steingard’s podcast. They have a fun account.

Oh, and by the way, here is our own Twitter account Discount Printer– not always coffee, but still lots of fun: https://twitter.com/discountprinter

I wanna be like Kylie Jenner

forbes

Kylie Jenner is my inspiration. I want to be just like her. I want to sell lip gloss. Well, not exactly, what I want to do is have 110 million Instagram followers.

Forbes magazine just named 20-year-old Kylie the youngest self-made billionaire. She is worth $900 million and in a year she should reach the $1 billion mark, making herself the youngest billionaire ever.

She created Kylie Cosmetics and does most if not all of her marketing and advertising on Instagram to her millions of followers, costing her nothing. She leverages her social media following. It’s great to be famous for being famous, but most of us need to create brand awareness for our businesses without being famous first.

But I’ve found over the years that posting regularly and consistently and using proper hashtags works wonders. Instagram offers business accounts now which has more features than plain old Instagram and it’s a great way to get your brand out there to the masses.

I feel that Instagram works better than Twitter and Facebook and even Snapchat at the moment. The all important 14 to 49 year-old demographic uses Instagram and the other sites and if you want to reach that market, that is where you need to be.

Days of commercials and placement ads are dwindling. The new generations do things differently. It’s about being social and part of their lives, being part of their social media feeds daily.
