Worldwide coffee statistics show that coffee is one of the most in-demand and obsessed over drinks in the whole wide world. It’s famous everywhere! Have your doubts? Well, did you know that an estimated 500 billion cups of coffee are drunk annually? That narrows the coffee consumption down to about 2.25 billion times IN A DAY!
Baffled? There is more! Coffee is such a cherished beverage that the entire world (or those who know) celebrates a ‘National coffee day’ on October first. Whereas Canada and America celebrate it separately on the 29th of September. Can you imagine? Coffee has its entire separate day!
And that is not it either. We have compiled some extremely bewildering and fascinating set of coffee statistics that will blow your mind! Dive into these astounding statistics to know all about coffee consumption, production, marketing, and much more the world over.
Fascinating Coffee Statistics of 2022
The cravings and desires for coffee that have dictated the ever-growing coffee consumption have changed over the years. Now the yearning for coffee goes beyond just wanting a hot drink or liking it! Calling it a drug would be no lie as survival without it seems impossible for the majority of the world’s population.
The following few facts demonstrate the deep-seated importance of coffee for those who drink it as well as its constantly growing popularity:
- Coffee, again, is no longer about the mouth feels. If we take the US for example, a mere 42.9% of its population consumes coffee because they enjoy the taste. Contrarily, a ginormous majority consumes it simply for a caffeine boost, adrenaline, and energy rush.
- The extent of loyalty to coffee found in coffee drinkers is literally the goal for any person in a relationship! Did you know that 52% of Americans would readily give-up showering if they had to choose between coffee and a shower? It is true!
- Coffee has transcended the normalcy of being ‘just a beverage.’ Many people do not even care about the flavors anymore so long as they get a coffee. Ever since 2015, there has been a 66% rise in people adding merely milk and no sweetener AT ALL!
- One could even call coffee consumption an unmissable ritual considering that 31% of coffee consumers make and drink coffee first thing in the morning. It’s part of their everyday routine and often comes before even washing their mouth or showering.
- Statistics indicate that America currently has an estimated 24,000 coffee shops across the country. This statistic, however, is expected to rise to upward of 50,000 coffee shops over the years!
- Globally, coffee is consumed so abundantly worldwide that about 50 countries currently are working to produce it. One can only imagine the export and import business transactions of coffee that run a huge number of economies.
- Considering this established popularity of coffee, you would never think it could hit bottom, right? However, Covid spared nothing, not even the coffee world. Ever since its beginning coffee sales diminished by 3.8%, specifically in 2020. Bummer!
If you are already stunned, let’s remind you that this was just a starter. The world of coffee is brimming with statistics to stupify you and we have much more to share.
Coffee History: Taking you back to how it all started
If you are looking to thank someone for this magical beverage that awakens all your senses, we know who to look for. A goat. Yep, that is right. It was a goat that discovered the love of your life beverage in the 9th century. That too, accidentally. Of course, goats wouldn’t go in search of coffee, pfft!!
Although there is much debate about this particular legend of the origin of coffee, however, it is also the most popular one. This is how it goes. The person who discovered coffee was an Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi. He once noticed how his goats become sleepless and restless after eating berries from a certain plant.
Kaldi reported this finding to the local monastery where a drink was made from the exotic berries. The monks realized that, indeed, the drink made them more active and energetic. Thus, passed on the knowledge of this unique beverage from monastery to monastery and later throughout the world.
Coffee History as it Took Over The Different Countries of the World!
The knowledge of coffee and the coffee plant spread like wildfire. Soon, it was the new exotic choice and delicacy in many countries all over the world!
By the 15th century, coffee had reached the Arabian Peninsula. It was heavily being grown in Yemen and the 16th century saw the consumption of coffee in Turkey, Persia, Syria, and Egypt as well.
However, coffee was not only enjoyed at home. Eventually, coffee houses, known as ‘qahveh khaneh,’ started appearing everywhere. People not only went to these coffee houses for the coffee itself but also to socialize, play games, listen to music, etc.
The news of coffee was carried further by pilgrims traveling to and from Mecca. More and more people started to get to know about it as the ‘wine of Araby.’
Coffee Reigns Over Europe
The 17th century saw the arrival of coffee to Europe all the way from the Arabian Peninsula. Although it wasn’t welcomed immediately and was initially referred to as ‘Satan’s bitter invention.’ However, pretty soon, it became very popular throughout the continent.
Coffee houses sprang up in every major country, Holland, England, Germany, Austria, and France. These coffee places became the hub of social activity. In fact, seeing how coffee improved productivity, coffee began taking over the usual breakfast beverages: wine and beer.
In the mid 17th century, London was serving coffee in an estimated 300 coffee houses! The coffee business was flourishing and growing! In fact, instant coffee was first invented in England in the year 1771.
America Meets The Coffee Craze
Finally, the new world of America was introduced to the world of coffee in the 18th century. It is no surprise that coffee swept the Americans off their feet as well! In fact, author Thomas Jefferson, who was a huge fan of coffee, claimed it was the ‘favorite drink of the civilized world.’
It may come as a surprise to you but several big names from American history are shared in the coffee mania that engulfs the world’s population today. Some of these names include Napoleon, Beethoven, Benjamin Franklin, Voltaire, and Theodore Roosevelt!
Coffee Production Statistics
Ever since its discovery by the Ethiopian goat herder, the coffee business has been raging fire globally. Either through exports and imports or through illegal and secretive transportation of the coffee plant, coffee has reached many nooks and crooks of the world!
In doing so, coffee production has increased enormously over the centuries and decades. Apart from some coffee hubs like Brazil and Vietnam, it grows and thrives in many other countries. Coffee is a huge business asset and many economies depend on its production. And yet, this does not mean there have been no declines.
The following coffee statistics show the journey of coffee from its discovery to recent years. How it has taken over the world and how several changes from global warming to COVID-19 have affected its production.
Coffee Production Statistics By The Year
The yearly production stats of coffee from 2017 to the year 2020 show some positive growth. Really, coffee has been crazy in demand. Statistics on coffee production reflect not only the amount produced but also the amount of coffee desired! Apparently each year, coffee fanatics fall a little more in love with this energy-saturated beverage.
The top two coffee beans used to make delicious coffee are the Arabicas and the Robustas. Both of them loyally kept up with the wants of their consumers over the years. Evidently, the production of Arabicas has increased from 167,868 to 169,634 thousand bags of 60 kg over four years (2017 to 2020)!
Robustas have not stayed behind either. Yes, Robustas have a lower yearly production compared to Arabicas. Frankly, that is because the Arabicas are considered much more superior coffee beans if you want a grand cup of coffee. Still, their production also increased from 69,680 to 70,211 thousand bags of 60 kg over four years!
Global Production Statistics For Coffee
According to the stats of 2021, the global coffee production sky-rocketed to a whopping 163.7 million 60 kilograms bags of coffee in 2019/2020. Astounding isn’t it? Such a huge figure is bound to stagger the best of us. However, did you know this is not even close to our all-time high?
Yes, the world witnessed a significant decrease in coffee production in 2019/2020. In 2018/2019, our coffee production record stood at a solid 172.5 million 60 kilograms of bags of coffee. Just imagine the amount of coffee left untapped between 2019 and 2020!
However, we could blame covid or global warming. A lot has happened between these years. While Covid could have potentially restricted proper cultivation of the coffee plants, global warming could have carried other disasters. You can’t grow coffee just anywhere. And with the changing climate, crops suffer.
Production of Coffee by Continents
If we analyze the coffee production of the world by continent, then South America wins the race by a giant margin. No kidding. However, that is probably because it includes the big coffee production hub ‘Brazil.’
In any case, let’s focus on the coffee production stats of some of the continents in 2017:
- Africa: 17, 461 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
- Asia: 52, 203 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
- Central America: 21, 752 thousand bags of 6o kilograms of coffee
- South America: 76, 453 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
Can you see the HUGE difference in the coffee production of South America and the rest of the continents? None of them even come close to a solid comparison! Now, here are the coffee production stats for these continents in 2020:
- Africa: 18, 539 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
- Asia: 48, 954 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
- Central America: 19, 544 thousand bags of 6o kilograms of coffee
- South America: 82, 596 thousand bags of 60 kilograms of coffee
While for some of the continents the coffee production has declined over the years (Asia and Central America), for others it improved. However, the key continent, South America, not only stands with the most improved coffee production since 2017 but also the highest coffee production over the years.
Production of Coffee by Countries
Surprising fact: Did you know that coffee is one of the world’s most traded goods? It only comes second to oil as the commodity most traded. THAT is how much coffee is running the world by both driving its people and its economy.
Coffee best grows in the tropics. This is why most countries which produce the most coffee and where coffee plants thrive are all tropical. No doubts. Here is a list of the top ten countries (and their coffee production) which produce the most coffee to sustain the world’s energy and productivity.
- Brazil: 2,681 metric tons per year
- Vietnam: 1,542 metric tons per year
- Colombia: 754 metric tons per year
- Indonesia: 669 metric tons per year
- Honduras: 475 metric tons per year
- Ethiopia: 471 metric tons per year
- Peru: 346 metric tons per year
- India: 312 metric tons per year
- Guatemala: 254 metric tons per year
- Uganda: 209 metric tons per year
So, without a doubt, Brazil is the giant coffee-producing factory of the world! What would we ever do without its contribution, right? Not to mention that in 2018, Brazil alone produced 61.7 million bags of 60 kilograms of coffee! Vietnam came in second with 29.5 million bags of 60 kilograms of coffee. The difference is stark.
The Top US States by Coffee Production
The US does not count as one of the world’s major coffee producers. This is because the production of coffee is only likely in two states of the US, namely, Hawaii and California. Regardless, Puerto Rico is famous for having a flourishing coffee industry in the US.
Still, it might shock some of you that the US fulfills 90% of its coffee demands through imports! These imports are especially from areas of South America. In any case, the US has several experimental coffee production setups going on in Georgia and Santa Barbara as well as California.
The Coffee Production Growth Rate: Is it keeping up with the consumption?
The consumption of coffee is nowhere even close to dwindling to a stop. Instead, it is growing every day. The only way left to keep up has been through increasing coffee production. As such, it was seen that the years 2020 and 2021 saw a rise in coffee production by 1.9%!
Keeping up with the growing obsession with coffee, the production market is grinding with an annual growth rate of 5.5%. This production rate is supposed to persist in the years 2022 to 2025. In addition to that, a voluminous growth in coffee production is expected in 2023 by 2.5%.
If we look at the US alone, its market size for coffee production will be 2.6% in 2022. However, the yearly coffee production trends for the US indicate that it faced an overall decline in its coffee production since 2012. Between 2017 and 2022 only, coffee production in the US has declined by 2.3%.
However, considering that the US is not a big producer anyway. And most of its consumption requirements are met through imports, this is not a great worry.
Coffee Consumption Statistics – Prepare to be blown away by the figures
How do different countries compare to each other in their coffee consumption habits worldwide? Does one country consume more than the other or are they setting records of consuming the most coffee? An average American, for example, drinks 2.7 cups of coffee in a day. This is nothing compared to the coffee consumption elsewhere.
Despite the American population is heavily dependent on coffee, the US ranked only 11th in the per capita coffee consumption for 2016. In fact, it looks like European countries took a ginormous lead with Finland consuming the highest amount of coffee per capita. Is everyone super hyper-active there or what?
Coffee Consumption by Year
Turns out we are not getting enough coffee! Coffee consumption stats appear to have a general and overall increase over the years. It is like every new year, the resolution has been to drink more coffee than the previous one!
In the United States, coffee consumption has grown massively from 2013 to 2020. Where the amount of coffee consumed in 2013 was once 23.81 million 60 kilograms bags, in 2020 it increased to 26.7 million 60 kg bags! However, that too is not the highest consumption quantity.
The US’s record coffee consumption stands at 27.16 million 60 kilogram bags of coffee in the year 2018/2019! Can you even imagine? THAT much coffee was being consumed in a single year by Americans.
Average Coffee Consumption Per Day
Data shows that the average consumption rate of coffee in the United States is three cups per day. An average cup contains nine ounces of coffee and 30% of people drink coffee occasionally.
Typically, the consumption of coffee in a day falls in one of the three time periods. The breakfast hours are when 65% of coffee is consumed in a day. Next, 30% is drunk between various meals, and finally, 5% of coffee is consumed along with other meals.
Regional Coffee Consumption Statistics
Coffee consumption among people can vary regionally as well. However, that does not only mean that the people of a particular region are averse to coffee. Instead, it could be highly possible that some regions are not as resourceful in coffee as others. Let’s try not to be too quick to judge!
In any case, as far as the United States is concerned, the Northeast was titled the leading region for coffee consumption in the year 2020. There, people consumed around 2 cups of coffee per day and per capita. However, the southern region was seen to have the lowest consumption of coffee. With 1.8 cups of coffee a day.
Consumption of Coffee by Countries
Some countries are more addicted to coffee than others. It could easily be because some produce more coffee than others, or not. In any case, the 2020 coffee consumption statistics show some surprising findings regarding the coffee consumption pattern. If you are thinking of the US, it is not.
In 2020 the highest coffee consumption was recorded in the Netherlands. But that is not the most surprising bit. The astonishing fact is that the consumption was recorded at 8.3 kilograms per capita! That is individual consumption and A LOT!
Countries that closely followed Netherlands ’ coffee consumption rates were Finland and Sweden with 7.8 kg and 7.6 kg of coffee consumption per capita respectively. The US came only second to last with 3.5 kilograms of coffee consumed per capita. Whereas the lowest consumption was by France, 3.4 kg per capita.
The Top US States by Coffee Consumption
Although the US does not top the list of the most coffee-consuming countries, it still consumes a lot of coffee. In America, every time is coffee time! It is what powers the people to grind and be productive. Or to simply wake up and face the day.
Still, states in the US are divided between the most and the least coffee drinking states. We’ll introduce you to both of them!
Most Coffee Drinking States:
- New Mexico
- Rhode Island
- Oregon (contributes to the most searches of ‘where can I get coffee near me’)
Least Coffee Drinking States:
- New Jersey
- New York
Coffee Consumption by Gender
Studies show that coffee consumption is significantly higher in men (50.8%) than in women (32.8%). As a female you might be comparing your coffee drinking frequency with several known men right now, aren’t you? It is only natural.
In any case, in the year 2020, it has been observed in the US that the per capita consumption of coffee for men was 1.93 cups. However, for women, it was 1.82 cups which is lower than for men.
However, for a typical coffee-drinking woman, statistics change. An average coffee drinking woman in America spends $2,327 annually in coffee shops compared to men who spend $1,934.
Coffee Consumption by Age Group
So, coffee is typically assumed to be an active person’s drink. By that, it is assumed that a person in their prime or young people would be more likely to consume coffee. However, you are in for a big surprise!
While most 18 to 24-year-olds individuals are observed to frequently consume the beverage, 70% of the seniors drink it too! Can you imagine? In fact, in the US, compared to younger counterparts, seniors drink 3 cups more in a day!
However, in the majority of the world, people in their prime age (25 to 45) tend to spend the most in coffee shops!
Coffee Consumer Behaviour
Many factors influence the consumption of coffee in people. Most people need coffee to function throughout the day, meet deadlines, and work. Without the beverage and a boost of caffeine, they find it hard to get through their daily chores and tasks. 49.8% of consumers claim coffee makes them more productive within the hour of consumption.
Coffee Consumption Growth Rate
Coffee consumption is growing exponentially across the world, age, gender, and every other diverse category. People seem to be going crazy for it every day. It is consumed as a beverage to stay alert and productive as well as a drink to enjoy leisurely.
Keeping this in mind, statistics show that between the years 2021 and 2026, coffee consumption is expected to grow by 4.28% globally! In fact, for the US alone, coffee consumption is projected to grow by 4.8% by 2025.
Coffee Market & Retail Statistics
The coffee industry has a huge and exponentially growing market. Many economies are flourishing because of their coffee sales. For instance, Brazil, which produces more than one-third of the world’s coffee, reaps its market value as well!
The coffee market is not just about simple coffee. There are a number of business opportunities from whole and ground coffee to instant coffee. As well as other coffee essentials and products. All contribute to the coffee market. And there is much to know about it.
Global Coffee Market Share
In the year 2020, the global coffee market had a total market value of USD 102.02 billion. This is expected to further increase by 4% by the year 2026. Currently, the global coffee market is growing at a rate of 7.6% and is expected to reach US$144.68 billion in 2025.
So, we all can continue feeling our stomachs with coffee to the heart’s desire. We won’t be running out any time soon!
World’s Top Coffee Exporters
Do we even need to remind ourselves of the father of coffee (no not in its origin but production)? It is obviously Brazil! However, if Brazil were the only country supplying us with this far too delicious drug, we would have run out a long time ago. Or would probably have had world war 4, 5, 6, and many more for coffee!
However, none of that became our fate. And that is because there are other coffee giants in the world. The following list shows the top coffee exporters along with the amount of coffee they export.
- Brazil: exports 2,680,515 metric tons

In fact, revenues from coffee production and industry have flatlined are not expected to get better till after the pandemic. And when will the pandemic end, that is a question we are all wondering.
Due to COVID, revenue dropped from 2019 to 2020 by 17.9% and dwindled further by 0.6% in 2020. However, profits are expected to resume by 8.7% by the year 2025.
The UK Coffee Market
The UK coffee market has a good size of US$1.2 billion. Although Europe is a rightful hub of coffee production, the UK only contributes a small portion to its coffee market. This is compared to the likes of Finland where coffee is consumed limitlessly.
Due to the Covid social distancing restrictions, the UK experienced a 1.3$ decline in its market size as well as a whopping 15.7% decline in its revenues. Regardless, over the next five years, experts predict that the UK coffee market will recover better than the US at a rate of 10.5%
The Australian Coffee Market
The Australian coffee market stands at a giant US$7.8 billion. This alone shows that Australia is one excessively coffee-consuming nation! Its market size for coffee is way larger than its population and way larger than the US as well.
However, Covid spares no one. And the Australian coffee market suffered a revenue loss of 18.9% in 2020. In any case, it is expected to recover at a rate of 8.6% by 2025.
The New Zealand Coffee Market
New Zealand beets even Australia and the UK in its per capita coffee consumption. It’s like every person in the world drinks more coffee than the other! Despite COVID, the revenue decline has been slower in New Zealand because of its apt lockdown measures in controlling the virus.
While the revenue for its coffee market shrunk at 15.8% in 2020, it is expected to recover at a rate of 9.1% in 2025.
The Chinese Coffee Market
Coffee consumption in China is not very great. However, due to its large market, it still makes billions of dollars for its size. Covid shrank the revenues in the Chinese coffee market by 18.7%. However, the market is expected to gain and grow back by 2025 at a growth rate of 11.6%.
The Coffee Industry Growth Rate
Despite Covid and any other slowdowns in the coffee market, the coffee industry is all set to flourish in the future as well. In the year 2020, the revenue from our precious beverage amounts to USD 460,004 MILLION.
In addition to that, the market is also expected to grow at an annual growth rate of 5.3%.
