Coffee Influencers

Social media influencers are people who affect their audience’s behaviour; they can persuade their audience to purchase products or services. Often this persuasive ability is limited to a specific niche, such as coffee.

Coffee influencers can make worthwhile additions to a coffee brand’s influencer marketing campaigns. A relevant influencer’s endorsement may resonate more deeply with the targeted audience than a celebrity endorsement.

Most Instagram coffee influencers are nano or micro influencers, and as such, they have built trust with their audience. Both nano influencers (1-10K followers) and micro influencers (10-50K followers) are characterised by their audience’s high degree of trust and engagement.

However, the biggest coffee influencers are mid-tier influencers (50-500K followers). Such large influencers have a border audience and reach.

This article identifies the top 40 coffee Instagram influencers and counts down to the top coffee influencer. The list includes many baristas, lifestyle influencers who love coffee, and coffee bloggers on Instagram.
