While the market continues to enjoy value growth, recent stagnation in household penetration of coffee pod machines is curbing the volume performance. Exploring subscription models could tackle the barrier that the upfront cost of the machines poses. Meanwhile, variety packs featuring coffee with different roast styles and origins could help brands tap Brits’ desire for coffee adventures.

Products covered in this Report
The following broad segments make up the coffee retail market:
- Instant coffee – this is the largest sector accounting for around
70% of the market. This is where, through various processes, the
coffee is dehydrated into the form of powder or granules for sale,
and prepared by adding these to hot water.
- Roast and ground – this is when coffee is sold in the form of
coffee beans or when the coffee beans are sold ready-ground.
Coffee pods feature pre-packaged ground beans sold in their
own filter to make the coffee-making process easier. Included in
this category are products for open and closed coffee systems,
such as those that take a cartridge or pod.
The market definition includes decaffeinated coffee.
This Report covers coffee consumption for the retail market only.
Therefore, it does not include coffee shops or other outlets where
coffee is purchased and drunk outside the home. Sales through
vending machines and self-serve coffee outlets are also excluded.
Ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee drinks, such as Starbucks
Frappuccino and cold-brew coffee, are excluded from Mintel’s
market size figure for retail coffee, but are discussed in The
Consumer section of this Report where relevant.
