Report: Americans are drinking less coffee

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

Americans aren't drinking as much coffee as in years past, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's biannual coffee report.

Experts say they think the decline has to do with single serve coffee machines and the popularity of the Keurig K-Cup; coffee drinkers are only brewing what they want as opposed to extra coffee to fill a pot.

The report also shows that more than a quarter of Americans have a single serve coffee machine in their homes.

America is the only one of the top eight coffee drinking nations that is showing a decline in coffee consumption.
