Learn about the worlds top producing coffee countries

Coffee is produced in more than 60 countries of which three account for more than half of the world's production:

Brazil, Vietnam and Colombia.

Arabica coffee, the fine-flavoured, aromatic type makes up 60-65% of the total production and usually fetches the highest prices.
The other variety, robusta, is easier to produce and is more resistant to disease. Around 75% of all coffee is exported.

Only Brazil and Ethiopia enjoy high domestic consumption.

The world's annual production is currently around 115 million 60-kg bags or 7 million tonnes. It takes 420,000 containers (20 ft.) to carry this much coffee. Placed in a row these would stretch over more than 2,500 km.

Wow, if this is accurate, where does u.s.a. stand? I thought for sure we would be top ten, but we are not even in the top 20? I am quite surprised, we need to work on that!!
Administrator Note:
The USA is under the top 20 consuming countries. The USA doesn't produce a lot of coffee. Hawaii is one state the grows coffee.
