The Clooney effect? Coffee pods set to overtake instant and ground coffee in UK | Coffee News | Scoop.it

They're more expensive and less eco-friendly than ground or instant coffee, but we can't get enough of single-serve pods.
A recent study from Kantar Worldpanel revealed supermarket pod sales - including brands such as Nespresso, Tassimo and Dolce Gusto - will soon overtake standard roast and ground coffee after an increase of ...

Nespresso brings its coffee expertise to Bocuse d'Or Europe 2014

Nespresso brings its coffee expertise to Bocuse d'Or Europe 2014 | Coffee News | Scoop.it

The Bocuse d’Or is the premier feature on any Michelin chef’s calendar – a brief moment in the year where judges rather than customers focus on the perfection of their cuisine. For Nespresso, the opportunity to be part of this event is a natural extension of its work with high gastronomy based on a mutual inspiration, a focus on quality as a premium experience, and a focus on innovation as a driving force. The involvement of Nespresso in an event which celebrates and promotes excellence is central to its own coffee expertise philosophy and thus it is once again heavily involved as one of the main sponsor of the Bocuse d’Or Europe 2014...

Breaking Down the Bean: How Coffee is Brewing Our Economic Growth

Breaking Down the Bean: How Coffee is Brewing Our Economic Growth | Coffee News | Scoop.it

Coffee consumption in the U.S. has been an integral part of our daily routine for decades, and today it’s a similarly big part of life around the world, from traditional coffee-drinking markets like Europe to emerging markets like Asia.

Consumed with meals and on its own, at home and on-the-go, coffee has in many ways become more than just a beverage—it’s an iconic product rich with brand values and important social and cultural associations. And that’s to say nothing of the caffeine...

Keurig vs Nespresso: The Battle for Single-Cup Coffee Supremacy

Keurig vs Nespresso: The Battle for Single-Cup Coffee Supremacy | Coffee News | Scoop.it

In the first generation of capsule-based home-brewers, Keurig Green Mountain  (NASDAQ: GMCR  )  clearly won in the United States with its K-Cup system, which has become the dominant single-cup coffeemaker.


Keurig however has struggled with its attempts to create a second hit machine as its follow-ups to the K-Cup system, the Vue and the Rivo, have failed to generate significant sales. Now the company has announced that it plans to offer a machine that brews full carafes of coffee using a variant of its K-Cup pods dubbed K-Carafe.


That brewer, the Keurig 2.0, will eventually replace the existing line of K-Cup machines. However, it will face a new round of competition for U.S. customers from rival Nespresso, a Nestle  (NASDAQOTH: NSRGY  ) subsidiary. Nespresso has already launched its VertuoLine, which does not make full pots but which does make eight-ounce cups of coffee, instead of the smaller espresso drinks that the company previously focused on.

"Our business in the U.S. is still small because we are focusing on espresso drinkers," Nespresso CEO Jean-Marc Duvoisin told FT.com.

With its new machines Nespresso can take the fight to Keurig, which has certainly established that there is an American market for full-size single cups of coffee.


The size of the single-serve coffee market
Since 2007 the global coffee capsules market has grown at more than five times the rate of the overall coffee industry, according to Euromonitor International. Capsule sales neared $11 billion in 2013 and Nespresso -- not Keurig -- is actually the market leader everywhere except the U.S. and Canada with $3.4 billion in capsule/pod sales outside of North America...

Smart And Smooth's curator insight, April 10, 2014 1:19 AM

"Which company will win the home and office coffee war?
The new brewers from Keurig and Nespresso are not apples-to-apples competitors, but they meet in the middle with their ability to make full cups of coffee. Both companies have shown that they can sell a huge volume of coffee and brewers on their home turf, but neither has shown that it can crack the rest of the world.

This is actually a war that both companies can win -- Keurig has the ability to go abroad and essentially establish a new category while Nespresso can grow by building a new niche in the U.S. It seems unlikely that Nespresso will take much market share from Keurig in the U.S. as Starbucks has failed to do that. Similarly the rest of the world is not likely to drop Nespresso for Keurig.

Still there is market share to be taken from other areas of the coffee consumption world and both companies could steal business from stores and restaurants to grow without hurting the other."

Single-Serve Coffee Brewers Make Convenience Costly

Single-Serve Coffee Brewers Make Convenience Costly | Coffee News | Scoop.it

SOMETIMES it’s hard to tell how much coffee costs, even if you know what you spent. At least that’s the case with many of the single-serve brewing machines that are soaring in popularity.

For example, the Nespresso Arpeggio costs $5.70 for 10 espresso capsules, while the Folgers Black Silk blend for a K-Cup brewed-coffee machine is $10.69 for 12 pods but ...
