Crunching some coffee numbers

While browsing the web I hit upon some very interesting figures, every serious coffee-fan should know 😉

  1. Coffee statistics show that coffee is the most popular beverage worldwide with over 400 billion cups consumed each year.
  2. Coffee industry statistics show that only 20% of harvested coffee beans are considered to be a premium bean of the highest quality.
  3. Coffee market statistics show that coffee is grown commercially in over 45 countries around the world.
  4. Coffee trade statistics show that over 5 million people in Brazil are employed by the coffee trade; most of those are involved with the cultivation and harvesting of more than 3 billion coffee plants.

Some rather impressive numbers, am I right? Well, I can assure that as far as Lavazza coffee is concerned, only coffee beans of the premium-part are used.
