Much of Canada has been blessed wih slow and slippery commutes, as the first snows of the seasons mark the early arrival of another long winter. As every year, when temperatures fall things in the coffee industry start to heat up. In the first week of November, Coca-Cola fired the opening salvo with the launch of a caffeine-laced sparking water brand. 

Leading brands have been making a strong push into the piping hot coffee market, the fastest growing segment of hot drinks. They are pouring billions into strategic acquisitions, global expansion, tie ups and new holiday products to grow coffee-driven revenue. Beverage giants and global coffee chains are jostling to guzzle up the biggest share of the coffee market and, in the process, are creating attractive investment opportunities for long-term investors.
