Coffee has always been in the centre of family and social life, as we can see in Insider Monkey’s latest compilation about the 9 countries with the highest coffee consumption in the world. What can be better than a hot cup of delicious coffee in the mornings, consumed with someone whom we love? Nevertheless we can be in a company or alone, we could get enough sleep at night, or not – we love coffee, this black nectar of nature. There’s a reason why Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX), McDonalds (NYSE:MCD), Dunkin Donuts (NASDAQ:DNKN) opened their cafés, and sell millions of cups of coffee every months.
Have you ever wondered how much coffee do drink a year? As for me, I consume six kilos of coffee annually, alone – although I drink coffee only twice a day: right in the morning after getting up, and at about 9 or 10 a.m. That’s all. Although I adore the morning fragrance of the first coffee of the day, I don’t consume it after 10 am. You will find arresting stats in this compilation, for instance the average coffee consumption per capita per year is 1.3 kg, while Norwegians consume ten kilos per capita annually. Naturally the United States is one of the biggest consumers of coffee, as 64% of them claim to drink coffe every day, while 83% of the American population say that they drink coffee, but not every day.
So, with milk, or without milk, with sugar or without sugar – and in many other ways we drink coffee, enjoy its taste and aroma, and we think we wouldn’t be able to do without it.

Total consumption of Switzerland is 957 (in thousand 60 kg bags). This wonderful country is famous for its banks, chocolates, beautiful mountainous landscape, but coffee also seems to have an important role of the people’s everyday life.

We are half way through our list of the 9 countries with the highest coffee consumption in the world, and our next country is Australia, Its total consumption is 1,908 (in thousand 60 kg bags), which seems to be quite a considerable quantity. The traditions of drinking coffee are influenced by Italians immigrants in this country.

2. United States of America
In the United States the total consumption is 26,569 (in thousand 60 kg bags). It is among the biggest consumers, but the United States got only the second place after Brazil. Amricans love coffee, so the States will be the first one in the near future – maybe.
Total consumption is 22,250 (in thousand 60 kg bags) in Brazil. I think none is surprised that Brazil won the first prize of the list of 9 countries with the highest coffee consumption in the world. Actually, in 2016 Brazil earned $557 million from just exportint coffee, naturally above its own consumption. The demand for coffee isn’t deacreasing.
