Cold Brew Coffee is on the Rise


Cold brew coffee sales have reportedly risen dramatically in recent years, with a 370% percent increase since 2015.

Cold brew coffee sales increased from $8.1 million in 2015 to $38.1 million in 2017, according to statistics from Statista, as reported by Forbes.

And experts believe that it won’t stop there. Analysts predicted that cold brew’s rise would continue through 2018, according to Bloomberg.

“We don’t typically have a product driving growth, but right now cold brew is doing that for us,” Jonathan Del Re, the owner of roasting company Dallis Bros. Coffee as well as Lacas Coffee, told Bloomberg. “This is going to be the summer of cold brew.”

Riverbend Foods CEO Tom Lavan said that an important part of marketing cold brew was to make sure consumers knew it wasn’t as bitter as traditional iced coffee.

“Once consumers realize that it has a clean and fresh taste and is not bitter, you will win people over much faster,” Lavan told Store Brands.
