The world’s largest exporter and producer of green coffee, and first in instant sales, Brazil achieved a record harvest of 49 million 600,000 bags of arabic variety last year, mainly used to produce roasting and grinding.

However, during that period the yield of the robusta fell 25 percent compared to 2015 due to a drought.

Vietnam is the second largest exporter of coffee in the world, with shipments of one million 790,000 tons to foreign markets in 2016, according to data from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
