10 Coffee Drinks That Will Be Popular in 2021

Mar 23, 2021

2021 brings a lot of fresh trends to the coffee industry. We're excited to see a move toward drinking more homemade coffee as well as a focus on environmentally friendly packaging for coffee products. But what will the most popular coffee drinks be? Here are 10 coffee drinks we predict will make a significant impact in 2021.

1. Dalgona Coffee

You can thank TikTok for popularizing this Korean whipped coffee drink made with sugar, water, milk, and instant coffee. Ice the milk, then whip the remaining ingredients and pour them over top for an attractive and tasty drink.

2. Turkish Coffee

Turkish coffee owes its unique flavor to the finely ground coffee beans. You can make it using any type of beans and a special Turkish grinder tool. 

3. Coffee From Recyclable Coffee Pods

People have never been more concerned about the environment and protecting the world from global warming. Coffee drinks that respect the Earth and minimize waste will be in high demand, such as our 100% recyclable coffee pods.

4. Iced Coffee

Iced coffee has seen its popularity soar over the past few years, and in 2021, it will reach its peak. The push toward making coffee at home will make this summer treat more accessible. You can brew coffee in the morning, drink it hot, and then stick the rest of the pot in the refrigerator to chill for later. What's better than a large iced coffee to help you power through that afternoon Zoom meeting? 

5. Cans of Coffee

Canned coffee is free of additives and preservatives to fit into our increasingly healthy lifestyles. Of course, you should recycle the can after you drink it.

6. Mushroom Coffee

Yes, you read that correctly. Staying on the "healthy coffee" theme, coffee infused with dried mushrooms provides antioxidants and adds a slight umami flavor to your morning cup. 

7. Vietnamese Egg Coffee

Also called ca phe trung, Vietnamese coffee includes a fluffy topping made from condensed sweet milk and whipped egg yolk. You can add it to hot or cold-brewed robusta coffee. 

8. Turmeric Coffee

You have probably read about turmeric, a spice that can reduce inflammation and fight heart disease. When you brew your coffee with a dash of turmeric added to the beans, you won't taste anything different, but you can reap turmeric's health benefits.  

9. Coffee Brewed From Local Roasters

That pro-environment trend we mentioned also extends to choosing locally made products with a small carbon footprint and locally sourced packaging. Coffee drinks made from beans provided by local roasters are a green choice, and that's important to many coffee devotees. 

10. Pumpkin Spice Latte

The infusion of spices gives the pumpkin spice latte its great flavor. This old favorite conveys the very essence of fall, and it makes the list every single year.
