In 2019, American coffee drinkers had roughly 0.27 cups of decaffeinated coffee per day. Decaffeinated coffee consumption in the United States fluctuated considerably between 2011 and 2019, reaching its peak in 2017 when Americans drank roughly 0.4 cups of decaf per capita per day.

Decaf consumption by ethnicity

In January 2019, Americans from varying ethnic backgrounds were asked if they had consumed decaffeinated coffee the day before. About fifteen percent of Hispanic-American respondents had, making them the largest group of decaf coffee drinkers. Caucasian Americans formed the smallest group that year.

Types of coffee

Decaf was one of the least consumed types of coffee in the United States in 2019. When asked about the kind of beverage they had drunk in the past day, only about ten percent of U.S. respondents stated they had a cup of decaffeinated coffee during this timeframe. About 44 percent of Americans had a cup of traditional coffee, while roughly 24 percent had espresso-based beverages. In the same year popular non-espresso-based coffee beverages included frozen blended and cold brew coffee. 13 percent of U.S. consumers had drunk frozen blended coffee for their past-week consumption, while 12 percent opted for cold brew.
