Drip coffee maker usage among U.S. past day coffee drinkers 2010-2019

In 2019, the drip coffee maker was used by 45 percent of coffee drinkers in the United States for their past-day consumption. While it was still the favorite method of the year, 30 percent fewer people used drip-coffee makers compared to nine years ago.

Methods of preparation

While drip coffee usage has declined significantly, other coffee preparation methods have become more prevalent since 2010. In 2019, almost thirty percent of respondents reported to have made a cup of coffee using a single-cup brewer during the past day. Usage of this method has increased from seven percent in 2010. Espresso machines have also become more common, compared to a decade ago: in 2019, about 12 percent of past day coffee drinkers used an espresso machine, while in 2010, this percentage stood at five percent.

Coffee roasting

Roasting coffee beans is what gives coffee its signature aroma and flavor, and there are various roast types to choose from in this day and age. In 2019, when asked about the kind of coffee roast they drank the day before, just over half of the U.S. survey respondents stated they drank a cup of medium roast coffee. About 43 percent of coffee drinkers preferred a dark roast.
