Global coffee production in crop year 2016/17 has been revised upwards to 157.44 million bags, a 3.4% increase on 2015/16, due largely to the increase in production for Honduras.

1 October is #InternationalCoffeeDay.
ICD2018 chose a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it.
