Description

Covered in this report

This report includes packaged coffee and prepared coffee beverages sold for home preparation and/or consumption. The following types of coffee are included:

  • Roasted coffee – ground and whole bean; regular and decaffeinated; unflavored and flavored
  • Single-cup coffee – cups and pods containing premeasured coffee for use in automatic single-cup coffee makers
  • Instant coffee – regular and decaffeinated; includes both powdered instant and liquid coffee concentrates
  • RTD (ready-to-drink) coffee – shelf-stable or refrigerated bottled/ canned single-serve prepared iced coffees and coffee drinks; refrigerated RTD coffee (half-gallons and single-serving)

"The $15.1 billion coffee category is projected to grow a respectable 22.7% through 2024 largely thanks to the trendsetting RTD (ready-to-drink) coffee segment, which is on pace to outgrow the long-time coffee leader, roasted coffee, within five years. The market is also driven by the continued modest growth of single-cup coffee options. Coffee suppliers and legacy coffee brands in particular need to meet quickly changing consumer needs around health and quality to remain relevant."
- Jill Failla, Foodservice Analyst
