The Single-Cup Format: In Pod We Trust 2.0

We hope you enjoy this complimentary on-demand NCA webinar from the NCA. For more free educational programming and other valuable benefits,  learn more about NCA membership.

In 2015, slightly more than one quarter of U.S. households own a single cup brewer (27%). Single-cup brewers are the second most popular method of preparation among daily coffee drinkers, after traditional drip brewers. (Source: National Drinking Trends 2015)

This sustained growth in ownership shows the potential for single-cup brewing systems to fundamentally alter coffee preparation habits. Emerging product innovations and shifting consumer habits will dictate the ongoing evolution within this segment.

This webinar will explore the recent trends in the U.S. single-cup coffee market and insights on the impact that pods and capsules are having on coffee consumption around the world.

You will learn:
  • The status of the global coffee market
  • Current trends in the U.S. pod market
  • Who the major players are in the U.S. and abroad
  • Where potential opportunities exist in single-cup
  • Future predictions

This webinar will also refer to data and analysis from The Single-Cup Format 2015.
