US Coffee Consumption is Declining Because of K-Cups

K Cups decline consumption

Actually coffee sales are up in the United States, but with over 25% of consumers in the US owning a Keurig single serve coffee maker coffee consumption is down. The reason is the “sink” is no longer consuming large amounts of coffee brewed in drip makers. Consumers are using the single serve coffee they drink, and quite honestly the amount of the decline isn’t that much - coffee consumption will drop in 2015-16 from 24 million 60kg bags to 23.7 million. 

So wasting less coffee is a great thing, and with single serve coffee being a bit more expensive it makes sense that coffee sales are up. It’s interesting to see this tipping point in consumption around the 25% mark as well.

Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer at Target and Other Retailers

Keurig 20 K200 Target

The Keurig 2.0 K200 Brewer has been rolling out to store shelves over the past few weeks, and we got this picture at our local Target in Watertown, MA. The K200 features 9 brew sizes (including carafe sizes), and a large 40 oz. Water Reservoir. There’s even strength control, and a Black and White Touch Display. We also really love this brewer’s compact size. Given the price point of ~$120 (we’ve seen it as low as $109) we expect this to be a big seller for Green Mountain. We just wish they’d get rid of the DRM.

G-KUP Creates the 1st Compostable Coffee Pods

R GKUP large570

The title kind of says it all but in reality a Vancouver-based company has come up with 100 per cent compostable coffee pods. They’ve also patented the process. 

Why? K-Cups right now are not compostable and are piling up in land fills. A Mother Jones report said the number of K-Cups produced in in 2013 was enough to wrap around the planet 10.5 times. ERG. 

G-Kups are held together with a bamboo and sugar cane sleeve, with a biodegradable polymer lining that can withstand boiling water. The sleeve has always been the issue - not being able to hold up to the temperature of the water so the brewing process holds up.

G-Kups aren’t out on the market yet, but let’s hope they get to market soon.

We just found out about Zebra Coffee - they make crfat coffee Nespresso compatible capsules (thanks to JRav from our Forums - you can read their review here). They’ve got a variety to choose from, and from what we’ve read they’re pretty solid. These will work in all Nespresso Maker but not the VERTUOLINE from Nespresso.

Their Nespresso compatible capsule line up includes: 

  • Mkali · [moh-kah-lee] · Mkali means bright in Swahili. This light bodied espresso blend features notes of bright, clean lemon zest followed by lightly roasted cocoa and delicate floral notes. A smooth and resonant finish makes this coffee perfect for those looking for a slightly sweeter yet balanced blend.
  • Kati · [kah-tee] · Kati means medium in Swahili. This full bodied coffee is fruit forward with a balanced acidity that features notes of baking spices, cocoa and toffee. Medium roasted to perfection highlighting it’s strong aroma with mild flavors.
  • Giza · [gee-zuh] · Giza means dark in Swahili. This rich and intense blend features bold notes of baker’s chocolate with mild acidity and a lingering exotic fruit finish. Works great by itself and with milk based beverages.
  • Bila · [bee-luh] · Giza literally means without in Swahili. This rich, balanced blend features subtle notes of ripe fruit and caramel leaving a velvety finish. Water processed to remove the caffeine. Enjoy this coffee any time, day or night.
