The main coffee importing and consuming markets in Europe, North America, and Asia are in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis.

However, the current trend toward online shopping for at-home consumption is forcing retailers, roasters, and consumers to adapt to this new reality. Therefore, this factor is expected to increase the consumption of coffee around the world. For instance, companies such as Nestlé SA had reported strong retail demand for food and beverage products globally, achieving 4.4% organic group sales growth in the first quarter of 2020. Coffee sales were particularly robust as consumers stockpiled essential items during the pandemic.
The convenient forms of coffee, like coffee pods and capsules and instant coffee, are becoming popular among the masses (especially in North America and Western Europe) to prepare good coffee in the comfort of home, in less time. For instance: as per the survey conducted by the National Coffee Association in the United States, more than 70% of the consumers prefer at-home coffee preparation.
The market is driven by multiple factors, a few being increasing demand for certified coffee products, acceptance of single-serve coffee brew systems by the consumers, and constant innovation lead by top players in the coffee market. In developed economies, some consumers are expected to switch from instant coffee to more premium options for reasons of quality and flavor. Instant coffee was once considered a high-end product but began to lose its base of younger consumers, which is changing the market dynamics.
Depending on coffee production, countries, like Brazil and Vietnam accounts for the highest production of coffee, in terms of volume, owing to suitable coffee growing conditions. With the production of 3.6 billion metric ton of green coffee, Brazil is the largest producer globally, followed by Vietnam, Colombia, Indonesia, and Ethiopia.

The German coffee pods and capsules market is highly dominated by Nestle’s Nespresso, with its wide product reach across the country.
