Brazil’s Coffee Consumption Jumps 4.8%
CoffeNetwork (New York) – According to the latest data from the Brazilian Coffee Industry Association (ABIC), coffee consumption in Brazil totaled 21 million bags in the period of November 2017 to October 2018. This is 4.8% higher than the same period last year.
ABIC has recruited EuroMonitor to help conduct the surveys that provide the data.
In an effort to try and improve data accuracy, ABIC has altered the way in which they come to their figures, including disregarding volumes previously taken into account by “non registered companies” such as farms, coffee shops, fairs and other informal establishments.
According to ABIC, under the old method, consumption would have been closer to 23 million bags.
Per capita consumption for the period was 6.02 kg, up from the 5.81 kg in 2017.
The report also forecasts that coffee consumption should continue to rise 3.5% per year to 2021, estimating that Brazil should consume 21.7 million bags in 2019 and 23.3 million bags in 2021.
