Top 10 Coffee Producers In The World

Top Coffee Producer In The World

Coffee is grown in approximately seventy countries. There is a prime location for coffee growth known as the Bean Belt. This title refers to the region bounded by 25° N and 30° S. Coffee flourishes in warmer climates, so growing coffee in areas that are too far north or south of the equator will be difficult or impossible.

The top ten countries with the highest rates of coffee production, in terms of the amount of coffee produced, are—
  1. Brazil
  2. Vietnam
  3. Colombia
  4. Indonesia
  5. Ethiopia
  6. Honduras
  7. India
  8. Uganda
  9. Mexico
  10. Guatemala

Now, here's a quick rundown of the top five coffee-producing countries, so you can learn a little more about "five" of the top ten coffee-producing countries!

  1. Brazil
  2. Brazil is without a doubt the country that produces the most coffee per year, both in terms of pounds and volume.
    The production of coffee has played a pivotal role in the development of Brazil and continues to be a driving force in the country's economy.
    Brazil produced more than 58 million 60-kilogram bags of coffee in 2020, down from over 65 million bags a year earlier. Coffee crops have a biannual influence on harvest yields, with very high yields one year and very low yields the next.

  3. Vietnam
  4. Vietnam's coffee planted area will be approximately 705 thousand hectares in 2021. During the study period, the planted area of coffee increased steadily year after year.
    Vietnam is the world's second largest producer after Brazil, with Robusta coffee accounting for 97% of total output.
    Vietnam produced 28.05 million 60-kilogram bags of Robusta coffee during the 2020-21 production period. From 2016 to 2020, the volume of Robusta produced in Vietnam increased steadily year on year.

  5. Colombia
  6. Coffee is more than simply a crop in Colombia; it has become a part of the country's identity.
    In 2018, the value of coffee goods produced in Colombia totaled 5.34 trillion Colombian pesos, down from 6.23 trillion pesos the previous year.
    Growers' profits shrank as a result of the worldwide coffee crisis of 1989, when the International Coffee Agreement came apart. Global warming has harmed coffee output in Colombia and around the world in recent years.

  7. Indonesia
  8. Indonesia is one of many Asian countries that produces a massive amount of coffee each year.
    Indonesia produces a variety of specialty coffees in addition to regular coffee. Luwak coffee (kopi luwak), Toraja coffee, Aceh coffee, and Mandailing coffee are the most well-known of these specialties.
    Indonesia was expected to produce approximately 774.6 thousand metric tonnes of coffee in 2021. Indonesia is a major producer and exporter of coffee in the world.

  9. Ethiopia
  10. Ethiopian coffee production has increased considerably during the last three years.
    Ethiopia reclaimed fifth place in the 2018–2019 marketing year and is forecast to produce 7.3 million 60-kilogram bags in the 2019–2020 marketing year, just edging out Honduras, which had taken Ethiopia's place in the 2016–2017 marketing year.
