Coffee's increasing popularity among younger consumers, as well as the latest popular iterations of the product such as cold-brewed and pour-over coffee, are making coffee's economic future appear as bright as can be. According to data from Technomic's Volumix Coffee Report, sales for single-cup coffee increased 62% in 2015, while the average per-pound price for single-cup coffee rose 6% between 2014 and 2015.

The Volumix report gives a 360-degree view of what coffee shop owners are purchasing, what the retail space is demanding, as well as relevant happenings in the trendsetting independent sector.

A few takeaways from the Volumix Coffee Report:

  • Vanilla, followed by mocha and chocolate, were the top flavor callouts mentioned among distributed SKUs in 2015.
  • Colombian and Arabica were the top origin callouts mentioned among distributed SKUs in 2015.
  • The Top 10 coffee SKUs make up 29% of all SKUs distributed in 2015.
