According to the International Coffee Organisation (2017) the total world coffee production in 2016/17 was about 157.69 million bags (each bag contains 60-kg). It is interesting that almost one third of this production takes place in Brazil. Although there are a number of countries which have made their name and fame in coffee production, they are no way close to Brazil!
The aim of this article is to explore the top 10 coffee producing countries in the world. On this note, we have produced the following list by extracting data published by the International Coffee Organisation (ICO). So, let’s have a look.
Top 10 coffee producing countries in the world
As you can see in the list above, Brazil is No. 1 in the world in coffee production. It produced approximately 55 million bags of coffee in 2016/17; however, the production is likely to face a decline in 2017/18. Vietnam is No. 2 in the list. The country produced around 25.54 million bags of coffee in 2016/17; however, the production is expected to increase in 2017/18.
Columbia is No. 3 with a production of around 14 million bags. Indonesia and Honduras are No. 4 and No. 5 in the list respectively. While the output in Indonesia is expected to decrease in 2017/18; Honduras is likely to see an increase. Like Honduras, countries such as India, Uganda, Peru and Mexico are also likely to see an increase in coffee production in 2017/18.
