Vietnam is Second in World Coffee Production .. America Consumes The MOST !

Total Production BRAZIL ... 

2,595,000 metric ton (5,714,381,000 pounds)

Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer. In 2016, Brazil produced a staggering 2,595,000 metric tons of coffee beans. It is not a new development, as Brazil has been the highest global producer of coffee beans for over 150 years.
Coffee plantations cover about 27,000 square kilometers of Brazil with the majority located in Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo, and Parana, three southeastern states where the climate and temperature are ideal for coffee production. Brazil also distinguishes itself from other coffee producing nations in that Brazilians process coffee with the dry process (unwashed coffee), where the coffee cherries are dried in the sun rather than washed in a wet process.

Would You Have Thought VIETNAM was # 2 in World Coffee Production? Probablt Not !

Vietnam - 1,650,000 metric tons (3,637,627,000 pounds)

While many are familiar with Vietnamese coffee, a signature drink where the coffee is mixed with sweetened condensed milk, Vietnam is the second largest coffee producing nation in the world – 1,650,000 metric tons in 2016 alone. While there was understandably a hiatus during and after the Vietnam war, coffee remained a huge part of the Vietnamese economy, with the only greater export being rice. Vietnam rapid expansion in coffee production which was only 6,000 tons in 1975 and now is almost 2 million. This growth has resulted in Vietnam holding on to second place on the world's most important coffee producing countries.

3. Colombia - 810,000 metric tons (1,785,744,000 pounds)

Coffee from Colombia is famous worldwide. However, climate has recently been playing a negative role in Colombian coffee production. Between 1980 and 2010, temperatures have slowly risen, as has precipitation. Both of these factors jeopardize the climate requirements necessary to produce the type of bean favored in Colombia. It was traditionally second to Brazil for coffee production but has moved to third due the rapidly expanding production of Vietnam. Even with the effect of climate, it has an output of 810,000 metric tons of coffee beans in 2016, Colombia remains a key player in the
