Coffee Consumption

Map No.


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.

Data sources
This map uses data by the International Coffee Organization (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets. Data for this map will soon be available as a download.
