Where Is Hot Coffee Consumed?

Both the Northeast and South regions are heavy coffee consumers, with approximately 30% of the servings share each. The Central and West regions hold about 20% market share each.(1)

Today, brewed coffee is typically consumed by itself as a stand-alone beverage (2) and with snacking occasions on the rise, there is an opportunity to bundle coffee with snacks and complementary offerings.(2)

Workplace drinking occasions lead the way for consumption away from home, so for professional drivers that means taking their coffee “to go”.
