How Many Coffee Pods and KCups are Sold?

Coffee is the second most popular commodity sold. Crude Oil is #1.

What to know a few more facts about coffee? Here are three:

  1. In 2014, pods accounted for 34% of all coffee sales – a massive growth of 133,710% since 2000.
  2. It’s so popular that at the last count in 2014, Nespresso had sold 28 billion pods, while North America’s popular Keurig Green Mountain produced a whopping 9.8 billion of them in 2014 alone.
  3. That’s a lot of coffee pods – enough to make a gigantic (and not very green) mountain, or to circle the world almost 26 times if we were so inclined (and that’s just Nespresso coffee pods).
