Coffee Production


 The production estimate for 2016/17 has  been revised up to 153.9 million bags, which constitutes an all‐time record.

Total production of Arabica is estimated to reach 97.3 million bags, up 10.2%, while  Robusta output is expected to decrease by 10.6% to 56.6 million bags.

 

About 70 countries grow coffee. The world's major coffee producers are Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia and Indonesia.

Brazil and Colombia produce mostly Arabica coffee and together account for more than 40% of world coffee production.

Vietnam produces Robusta coffee, generally considered to be a lower quality type of coffee than Arabica.


Most of the world's premium or gourmet coffee is grown by about 35 countries.

Six ACP countries produce over 800,000 bags per year : Ethiopia, Uganda, Côte d’Ivoire, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania and Kenya.



Coffee Quality


Under the Coffee Quality-Improvement Programme (CQP), moisture content should not fall below 8% or exceed 12.5%, and there should be no more than 86 or 150 defects per 300g sample of Arabica and Robusta coffee respectively.

ICO (International Coffee Organization) Member countries cannot export coffee that has the following characteristics:

Arabica

in excess of 86 defects per 300g sample (New York green coffee classification/Brazilian method, or equivalent)

Robusta

E.U. : 20,455,000 bags of 60 kg /132 lbs

The United States is the second largest importer of coffee after the European Union. Five major companies purchase about 50% of the world's annual production of coffee.

The EU accounts for nearly half of world bean imports and is forecast to increase slightly to 45.5 million bags, with top suppliers including Brazil (28%), Vietnam (25%) and Honduras (7%). As a result, stocks are expected to remain tight.

The real growth in coffee demand, is coming from emerging economies like China, India, Brazil, Russia and Latin America. All of these regions are seeing a much higher increase in coffee coffee consumption than the worldwide average growth of coffee consumption which is about two percent annually. These emerging markets are growing their coffee consumption much more rapidly, from five to twenty percent annually

COFFEE & HEALTH

A “cup” of coffee is an 8-ounce cup with 100 mg of caffeine, not the 16 ounces you would get in a grande coffee at a Starbucks, which has about 330 mg of caffeine.


Caffeine


Some people may still want to consider avoiding coffee or switching to decaf, especially women who are pregnant, or people who have a hard time controlling their blood pressure or blood sugar.

Studies have shown that coffee may have health benefits, including protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of depression.

But coffee consumption may cause withdrawal headache, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, palpitations, sleeplessness, and irritability.

Caffeine is a diuretic and prompts the body to lose water through urination. This can lead to dehydration. It is suggested to drink 8 ounces of water for every cup of coffee.

Caffeine's strongest effects are felt for about an hour after taking it, but some effects last 4 to 6 hours.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that adolescents get no more than 100 milligrams of caffeine a day.

Robusta beans have higher caffeine content but harsh flavors.


Caffeine can be addictive.


Energy Drinks


Energy drinks are beverages marketed as providing mental and physical stimulation. The amount of caffeine in an energy drink can range from 75 milligrams to over 200 milligrams per serving. In comparison, Coke contains 34 milligrams of caffeine and Mountain Dew 55 milligrams.


Antioxidants in the form of flavonoids


Over 54% of Americans over 18 who drink coffee everyday and get more antioxidants from coffee than anything else.

Coffee beans contain disease-ravaging antioxidants, called quinines, along with magnesium.

Coffee’s antioxidant compounds include caffeic acid, caffeine, the chlorogenic acids, eugenol, gamma-tocopherol, isoeugenol, p-coumaric acid, scopoletin and tannic acid.

Coffee also contains trigonelline, an antibacterial compound that may be a factor in preventing dental caries.

Coffee Beverages


There are over 61 coffee beverages in addition to a growing number brewed with a 25 ml shot of liqueur.

Popular Beverages

Affogato | Antoccino | Black eye | Black tie | Caffè Americano | Café au lait | Café bombón | Café Cubano | Caffè crema | Café de olla | Caffè latte | Caffè Marocchino | Café mocha | Cappuccino | Espresso | Flat white | Macchiato | Mélange | Moka or Mocha | Pocillo.

How to Make Coffee

You can have a week or two of gourmet brew, right from your kitchen. What's needed :

Coffee Maker | French Press | Chemex | Aeropress | Hario V60 | Kalita Wave | for your brew.

For best results, we strongly recommend starting with whole coffee beans and grinding with a burr grinder immediately before brewing for delightful aromas and flavors. Giving a blade grinder a good shake while grinding can help even things out.
