Make no mistake, coffee is big business: Packaged Facts forecasts that retail and foodservice sales of coffee will top $48 billion in 2014. Of this amount, we expect $11.2 billion (or 23%) to come from retail sales and $37 billion (or 77%) to come from sales at foodservice establishments.

Any yet despite all the variety, hot coffee is still the go-to beverage, with 75% of coffee/coffee drink users saying that among 10 choices 'hot coffee? is the coffee/coffee drink they drink most often.
