Chains Pret A Manger, Costa Coffee, Caffe Nero and Greggs alongside U.S. firm Starbucks are among the biggest coffee-sellers in Britain and have rapidly expanded in the last 10 years to meet increasing demand, Reuters reported.

Appley Bridge Recycling Ltd is supporting a potential 25p "latte levy", which is a charge to be paid by customers in coffee shops for the use of a throwaway cup.

Coffee shops have been sending out mixed messages for years, emphasising that their cups are "recyclable" and staying silent on the fact they are not actually recycled.
Starbucks said it would also continue the 25 pence (28 euro cent) discount it already offers to customers who bring their own cup.
Mr Palmer-Jones said: "For any so-called latte tax to be more than just a light and frothy foam nod to reform, we need to wake up and smell the real coffee needed for a lasting brew".
"We heard evidence that consumers are more responsive to a charge than a discount and that a charge on disposable cups could reduce use by up to 30 percent."
