“China is one of the most rapidly growing coffee markets on the planet. This country consumes more than 200 thousand tons of coffee per year (3.35 million bags), and this number will continue to grow in the next few decades.” said Frederico Meyer, Consul General of Brazil in Guangzhou, in the hope of bringing more high-quality Brazilian coffee to Chinese consumers.
With coffee having long been rooted in Brazil’s lifestyle and its culture, Brazil has become one of the largest producers, exporters and consumers of coffee in the world. According to the international coffee organization, in 2020, 37.4% of all the coffee produced worldwide came from Brazil.
Natalia, the founder of Ingenuity Coffee, introduced the history of coffee in Brazil and her stories with Brazilian coffee. “Minas Gerais is the first state that started to grow coffee beans in the 18th century. And then coffee beans in Brazil made such a huge revenue in 20th century that it was called as ‘green gold’,” she explained.
