If overall demand might not explode, i think with most coffee shops closed in developped economies, people have been drinking a lot more at home than before.
One can assume that in most coffee shops people drink arabica, while when they buy coffee in supermarkets some will buy instant coffee or cheap blends.
This means that since the pandemic started, arabica demand has been strongly negatively impacted while robusta demand has benefited.
Once economies fully reopen, maybe overall consumption will not explode, but it is very likely that arabica demand grows back strongly.
