[$$] Keurig Dr Pepper Says Sales of Its Coffee Brewers Fell

Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. said sales of its namesake coffee-brewing devices declined in the fourth quarter, but offered a good reason: The machines are lasting longer. “Fewer people are buying to replace a broken brewer,” Chief Executive Robert Gamgort said in a conference call with analysts. About 28 million households, or 22% of U.S. homes, now use a Keurig brewer on a regular basis, he said.
