Key Market Trends

Increasing German Appetite for Coffee

Over the past years, Germans have shown a growing inclination towards coffee consumption, amidst the volatility in prices. Germany is Europe’s largest importer of green coffee beans. Its coffee roasting industry is enormous, which facilitates the country to serve both its domestic market, which is the largest in Europe, and export markets. As of 2016, around 13% of the German population is drinking coffee made from a single-cup brewer every single day. This is due to the rise in demand for specialty coffees and single-serve methods in Germany. On the other hand, Germany’s per capita coffee consumption is not among Europe’s highest but is at 5.5 kg per year, which is higher than the European average of 5kg.
