List of countries by coffee production

The following list of countries by coffee production catalogues sovereign states that have conducive climate and infrastructure to foster the production of coffee beans.[1] Many of these countries maintain substantial supply-chain relations with the world's largest coffeehouse chains and enterprises.[2] These coffeehouses play a prominent role in supporting developing economies by waging a variety of coffee wars to gain market share.[3][4] Often these coffeehouse chains pay a premium above market price in order to alleviate fair trade and sustainable farming concerns. Developing countries that participate in the coffee market wield considerate influence on global coffee economics.[5][6]
