Coffee Production

Coffee is produced in more than 60 countries of which two account for half of the world’s production: Brazil and Vietnam.
Arabica coffee, the fine-flavoured aromatic type, makes up around 60% of the total production and usually fetches the highest prices. The other variety, Robusta, is easier to produce and is more resistant to disease.
Around 70% of all coffee is exported – most of it in the form of green beans.
The world’s annual production is currently around 145 million 60-kg bags or almost 9 million tonnes. It takes 480,000 containers (20 ft.) to carry this much coffee. Placed in a row these would stretch over more than 2,900 km (1,800 miles).

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.
