Coffee: Production

Dear reader,

This month I just wanted to write a very short article describing the current production of coffee in the world. Can you guess how many countries actually produce and / or export coffee these days? Yes, more than 50 countries in the world are coffee producers! 😉

                     The map above shows areas of coffee cultivation by type of coffee:
r:  coffea canephora (also known as robusta)
m: both coffea canephora (robusta) and coffea arabica (arabica)
a:  coffea arabica

I will not list here all the current coffee producer countries in the world, but accordingly to ICO (International Coffee Organization) the largest ten coffee producers countries are:

  1. Brazil (YES, it’s my home country!  🙂 ),
  2. Vietnam,
  3. Colombia,
  4. Indonesia,
  5. Ethiopia,
  6. Honduras,
  7. India,
  8. Uganda,
  9. Mexico, and
  10. Guatemala.

I think the only countries above which I still haven’t proved their coffee are India, Uganda and Mexico. What about you, dear reader, have you tasted coffee from all the countries cited above?

In the next article about coffee (scheduled for the end of this year) I intend to write about some different kinds of coffee plants including their taste and quantity of caffeine present in each variety.

Until there let’s just enjoy a delicious cup of coffee…

Best Regards from this blogger coffee lover!  😉
