Out with the old, in with the cold brew


While carbonated soft drinks continue to decline in consumption, cold brew coffee continues to rise as a caffeinated alternative.

According to Mintel’s Coffee U.S. 2016 report, RTD cold brew coffee is gaining steam, with a 580% growth from 2011-2016.

“Innovation continues to expand the cold brew portfolio at retail, which is seeing new flavors, dairy and non-dairy milk additions, and even functionalities and crossover products,” Elizabeth Sisel, beverage analyst at Mintel, says. With a growing market and consumer demand, the cold brew industry is introducing consumers to newer innovations, such as cold brew coffees with honey.
