A new study of United States coffee roasters from MyFriendsCoffee lists the average price of a bag of freshly roasted coffee in America as US$16.90. The average cost of a cup of this coffee made at home is US$0.74.
MyFriendsCoffee says its main goal with this research was to better understand a certain segment of the US coffee market: freshly roasted coffee sold by roasters.
For the study, MyFriendsCoffee analysed the sites of 481 US coffee roasters.
The analysis was carried out between 1 February and 30 March 2021. It paid attention to the price per pack of freshly roasted coffee, as well as to the products and services that roasters offer to their customers.
According to the research, roasters offer an average of 12 types of coffee. This includes both blends and single-origin coffee from different countries with unique roasting profiles.
66.1 per cent of coffee roasters operate their own coffee shops, with an average of three per business. At these shops, customers can taste various coffees before choosing which beans to buy and brew at home.
76.3 per cent of roasters offer a coffee subscription. By choosing a subscription, MyFriendsCoffee says consumers can make sure they always have the right amount of freshly roasted coffee at home.
Wholesale coffee beans are offered by 78.2 per cent of roasters. MyFriendsCoffee says these roasters are open to partnerships with coffee shops, bakeries, and stores that are looking to expand their range of freshly roasted coffee.
