Evolving coffee culture in Budapest is anticipated to add impetus to the market growth in the projected period.

However, with time, the coffee culture evolved, and the classic cafes in the city were joined by stylish third-wave coffee stores. The capital is moving on to adopting modern coffee houses with the onset of specialty coffee shops in the city. In comparison to previous years, the younger generation prefers filter coffee. Consequently, with the evolving coffee culture in Budapest, the market is anticipated to significantly grow in the projected period. However, due to the current COVID-19 scenario, the market is predicted to experience a slight decline in 2020 due to the shutdown of cafes and public gathering spaces.
