If you’re over 50 you may remember when the coffee section of your local supermarket stocked and sold about a half-dozen brands: Folger’s, Hills Brothers, MJB, Maxwell House, Chase & Sanborn, and A.& P brands. Today it might take an hour to count all the brands at a typical market as the competition for your coffee dollar is hot!

Survey: Sixty-four percent of Americans age 18 or over said they had a cup of coffee the previous day in 2018.

Because iced coffee is now almost as popular as hot coffee, there is not as much variation in consumption statistics by month. People love to drink it all year round, but in the winter months people are craving special drinks made with the espresso/cappuccino machine like cafe au lait, macchiato, cafe con leche, cafe mocha, and lattes.

Even though we in the U.S. see coffee shops practically on every corner these days, we are still ranked far below many other nations when it comes to coffee consumption per-capita. In fact we don’t even crack the top 20! Here are the top countries for coffee consumption:

Finland – 12kg per capita per year
Norway – 9.9
Iceland – 9
Denmark – 8.7
Netherlands – 8.4
Sweden – 8.2
Switzerland – 7.9
Belgium – 6.8
Luxembourg – 6.5
Canada – 6.2
Bosnia and Herzegovina – 6.1
Austria – 5.9
Italy – 5.8
Slovenia – 5.8
Brazil – 5.5
Germany – 5.5
Greece – 5.4
France – 5.1
Croatia – 4.9
Cyprus – 4.8

American consumers love their coffee, and they love it fast which is why more than 50% of take-out coffee is sold through the drive-up windows of Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, McDonald’s, and other outlets. That means the machines have to perform flawlessly and fast, so it’s important to work with quality equipment and supplies. Many of our customers work with a primary espresso/cappuccino machine but also have a back-up machine standing by in case of a breakdown.
