USDA 2022 WORLD COFFEE REPORT SUMMARY AND TABLES

Summary

The vast majority of coffee imports in the US is unroasted Arabica coffee, whose share of unroasted coffee trade increased from 68 per cent in 2011/12 to 80 per cent in 2020/21. By volume, unroasted Arabica imports increased by 3.3 million bags to 19.4 million during the period, while imports of unroasted Robusta coffee dropped by 2.6 million bags to 3.5 million, about a 44% difference. Imports of unroasted decaffeinated coffee, designated as neither Arabica nor Robusta, declined by 100,000 bags to 1.5 million. Vietnams General Statistics Office latest numbers seem to paint a different picture than the USDA estimate.
