Coffee mug sales in the US dropped 16% in the first quarter of 2017, and the number of mug makers has fallen as well, as brands that have traditionally enjoyed strong growth in the coffee industry have struggled.
According to market research firm Nielsen, the number one selling coffee mug brand in the country fell to just 679 in the quarter ending March, compared to 1,738 in the same period last year.
“There was no reason for this, it’s not sustainable, there is a shortage,” said Sarah Worsley, a coffee maker and market analyst at market research agency Fitch.
In the US, there are more than 1,200 coffee makers, but most of them are owned by small-time operators and hobbyists, making them susceptible to changes in the industry.
While the overall industry is still expanding, Worsly said that smaller firms are in the best position to make it through the crisis.
“If you look at the small-to-medium businesses, you’re still seeing a lot of small businesses.
The larger coffee businesses are still doing well,” she said.
Small coffee companies have been a mainstay of the US coffee market for more than a decade, and many of them rely on a steady stream of sales from their fans.
This includes popular brands such as Nestle, the parent company of Starbucks, as well as smaller local brands such a Pimm’s, a local cafe chain, and Coffeefield, a manufacturer of coffee filters.
Coffee companies have also invested heavily in marketing their products, often using social media to encourage consumers to try their products.
One of the most visible marketing efforts of the coffee maker industry in the last decade has been through coffee mugs, which have become increasingly popular among millennials and have become a big draw for them.
Last year, a survey by coffee maker maker company Nestle found that 80% of millennials who tried their coffee on their coffee mug wanted to buy it again.
However, the popularity of the product has also led to a decline in the number and number of mugs sold in the United States.
As the coffee moutains have been in short supply, consumers have had to resort to the more affordable alternatives, such as disposable cups and mugs that cost a few dollars more.
But even those alternatives are starting to lose their appeal.
Worsley said that even though consumers have grown more savvy over the years, they may be unable to find the same amount of coffee on sale in the store as they used to.
A spokesperson for the Coffee Association of America, which represents coffee makers in the U.S., said that the coffee market is still “overvalued” compared to other industries.
And the association is concerned that a lack of demand for coffee muffs will only cause prices to rise, and not make coffee more affordable for consumers.
There have been several factors that have led to the decline in sales, including tighter regulations and new regulations that make it more difficult for small coffee makers to survive.
It is unclear whether the recent decline in coffee sales will cause coffee makers or other small businesses to see a sudden increase in sales.
What’s more, the coffee makers industry is also facing challenges from its competitors.
Some of the largest coffee makers are not taking advantage of the boom in demand for their products and are turning to cheaper alternatives, according to Nielsen.

There are so many great coffee makers that are struggling right now,” said Sam Stell, owner of The Coffee Company in New York City.
He said that if he can’t continue to support his business, he may have to shut down the company.
“I have to start from scratch,” he said.
The coffee industry is not the only industry suffering from the crisis in coffee.
Other major coffee companies including Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Dunkin Brands are facing similar pressures.
Meanwhile, other industries, such to food and clothing, are also facing similar challenges.
An increasing number of small companies are struggling to survive and have resorted to alternative products, such the disposable cup, which are also becoming more popular in the market.
Selling coffee mouts has become so popular that many of the smaller companies are not even able to keep up with demand, said Mark Moseley, who heads the food and beverage company Mosey’s.
Mosey said that he has lost more than $1 million in his coffee business since the start of the crisis last year and has been unable to keep it going.
We are facing a similar situation with the food industry, he said, adding that the costs of operating are increasing by about $2,000 a day for every $1,000 of revenue.
Despite the crisis, some of
