World Coffee Statistics Database


Launched on 31 January 2022, it is the repository of one of the richest/largest coffee data sets in the world, housing the ICO’s coffee data. Trade, prices, production, consumption, inventories are the main focus of the WCSD, with data available in a monthly format starting from October 1963.  The key feature of the database is its ability to generate reports on a disaggregated basis, giving analysts and users of ICO’s coffee statistics a simple control and access to its data set. Access to the WCSD is open only to either the Members of the ICO or subscribers to one of the Statistical Publications*.


The main vehicle of the ICO in the dissemination of the latest volume and trend of the global coffee trade. It covers the 6 immediate past months of exports of all exporting countries, as well as the imports and re-exports of major non-producing countries.  12 months of exports of Arabica and Robusta for all exporting countries are also covered within the MTS.  The subscription to the MTS is linked with access to the respective areas of the WCSD.


Comprehensive coverage of the global coffee industry is the focus of the QSB. Trade (volume and value), production, consumption, inventories, prices (CIP, prices to growers and retail prices) and economic data are found within the QSB.  The data coverage is global, with individual breakouts for all exporters and major consumers, and where appropriate grouped into regions.  Data are in a combination of monthly, quarterly and annual for the past 6 years.  The subscription to the QSB is linked with access to the respective areas of the WCSD.


Annual trade statistics for all countries separated into importing countries and exporting countries with 6 years of historic data, broken out into green beans, roasted and soluble coffees. The subscription to the ATS is linked with access to the respective areas of the WCSD.
