The U.S. coffee market remains steady, but a few trends are having an impact on it. A 2015 Gallup study found that Americans are drinking just as much coffee now as they were in 1999, about 2.7 cups a day.
By May 2013, Mike Steiner and Jake Paulson had grown weary of the years they had spent on the road touring as front-of-house audio engineers in the rock music industry, so they switched channels and founded a cold-brew coffee company they dubbed Anchorhead Coffee.
Cold-brewed coffees are gaining attention in the marketplace, including among Beverage Industry readers. Showing their affinity for ready-to-drink, cold-brewed coffee, 22 percent of voters named High Brew Coffee as the best new product that was posted on www.bevindustry.com during the month of July, making the new lineup the winner of the magazine’s July Readers’ Choice Product of the Month poll.
