The United States is the world’s largest market for coffee. Annual consumption per capita is just over 4 kg compared with around 5 kg on average in Europe.
Annual consumption per capita in Europe varies from more than 8 kg on average in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) to around 3 kg in the United Kingdom and most of Eastern Europe.
The annual consumption of 6 kg per capita in Brazil is exceptionally high among coffee-producing countries. Brazil’s annual production of almost 50 million 60-kg bags (2.9 million tonnes) makes up a third of the world production of just below 9 million tonnes.
