best coffee affiliate programsFinding a good niche is a very important aspects of getting success with affiliate marketing.

So is coffee a good niche?

In this article I will give you an idea about the potential of this niche, and I will also give you a list of the best coffee affiliate programs, so you can easily find good partners and earn commissions.

The affiliate programs I will show you how to join includes gourmet coffee affiliate programs, affiliate programs for organic coffee, programs for brands like Nespresso, Starbucks, Illy, Senseo, Bodum, Koa Coffee, and many more.

Is coffee a good affiliate niche?

Before we get to the list of the best affiliate programs you can join, if you promote coffee or coffee related products, let’s first look at the potential of having coffee as a niche.

According to Statista, coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages, the majority of coffee is consumed at home, and in the US alone the retail sales of coffee is more than 5 billion USD per year.

And if you take a look at how the interest for coffee is on Google trends, you can see that it is a very popular search term over the course of a year.

Google trends shows that coffee is a very popular search term.

On the graph, 100 represents the highest popularity a search term can have, and as you can see, coffee is very popular.

So clearly it is a market and niche with a huge potential. But even though a market has a lot of potential, it is not always a good niche, as it can be too competitive – especially if you are new to affiliate marketing, and do not have a big budget or many resources yet.

So let’s also take a look at the competition for certain search terms in the coffee niche.

I have used the keyword tool Jaaxy to do some keyword research about coffee. Below you can see an example of some suggestions that came up, when I wanted to get ideas for keywords about buying coffee online.

Examples of coffee search terms.

These are just a few of the ideas that Jaaxy suggested and for only one search term. The QSR is the quoted search results and tells you about the competition. If it is below 100, and at the same time has avg (average monthly search volume) above 50-100, it is a good keyword for new websites. There are several options that fits these criteria.

And this is just for one search term. There are many coffee related terms your website could potentially promote. It could for example be coffee mugs, coffee machines, coffee grinders, etc. I did a bit of research about coffee grinders as well to show you one more example.

There are many great keywords related to coffee.

Here there are some great keywords as well.

So coffee definitely has potential as a niche. It is about finding the right angle, the right keywords, and then continuously write high quality content that is SEO optimized.

What to look for in an affiliate program?

If you decide that coffee should be your affiliate niche (or if you already have decided), you need to make sure to join the right affiliate programs.

Not all programs have good conditions, so let’s go over some main criteria you need to check, to see if a coffee affiliate program is worth joining or not.

Commission:
How high a commission you will get is obviously important to know, so no need to explain more about this.

Payout methods:
If you start promoting a certain coffee brand or product and earn commissions, you want to be sure you can get paid in a way that suits you.

So check out what kind of payout method, the affiliate program you join offer, so you know this before joining. Most programs offer payout through PayPal or bank transfer, so it should not be an issue to find a program that pays in a way that suits you, but better to know this in advance.

Cookie time:
The cookie time is important for any affiliate program. When somebody clicks an affiliate link on your website, a cookie is installed, so it is possible to track when a sale comes from a click on your website, and to make sure you then get a commission.

If the cookie time is 30 days, it means that if the person buys something within 30 days after clicking a link on your website, you will get a commission, even if the person has left the site after clicking your link. Many people do not buy right away, but come back later to buy, and you would then still get a commission.

So a long cookie time increases the chance of commissions for you in most cases, and it is therefore important to know this, if you for example have to choose between several affiliate programs.

Quality of product:
This is a criterion that is unfortunately sometimes forgotten by affiliate marketers. Some people will just promote the product with the highest commission.

This is not an approach I recommend, and it is not ethical. If you for example are going to promote a coffee machine as an excellent choice, make sure it is an excellent choice. Your recommendation can help other people make purchase decisions, so make sure to really help them.

On the list below, I have included the info about these criteria, where I have been able to find the info. So it should be easy for you to get an overview of the conditions for each program.

The best coffee affiliate programs

Now that we have gone over the potential of the coffee niche and the things you need to consider when choosing an affiliate program, I will now show you some really good and popular affiliate opportunities for coffee and coffee related products.

The list is not in a prioritized order, as the best solution depends a lot on your preferences, your website, and the country you live in. So look through it a find the best solutions for you.

It has actually not been easy to find info about an affiliate program for Nespresso. I finally ended up finding the platform VigLink that says they offer it. After I joined VigLink, I could apply for the program, but there is not much info, and since my website is not about coffee, it would not make sense for me to apply.

So I cannot guarantee that the program is still running, but VigLink says it is still open for applications, so if you really want to promote Nespresso, you can try to join, and see if you can get accepted.
