All About Coffee

Coffee Today

Today, coffee is enjoyed in every country in the world. In terms of trade, coffee is second only to oil in dollars traded.

It is grown in more than 50 countries world wide with about 30 of those countries producing more than 5,000,000 tons of coffee each year. For many of these countries, their economic success pivots on the success of their coffee crops.

Brazil is by far the largest supplier of coffee today. Columbia is second with about 2/3rds of Brazil's production.

Americans consume more than 1/3rd of the total coffee grown in the world. The green coffee beans come in to our country through New York, New Orleans and San Francisco and from there are shipped to coffee roasters around the states.

Hawaii is the only place in the USA where coffee is grown.
