Future of Coffee in Africa: Worth Investing In? – Reading – Distance Learning
Introduce students to the coffee trade in Africa with this reading guide. Out of the regions of Africa, East Africa is a standout when it comes to coffee production. South Africa’s coffee industry is also thriving, with 13.3% increase in coffee consumption from 2014-15 to 2017-18. While coffee hasn’t been such a popular drink in Africa itself, higher-income among the middle class has started a coffee movement in urban areas. From artisanal coffee shops to Starbucks tumblers and accessories like HotShot Coffee Sleeves, coffee-drinking has become an experience, and there’s a marked preference for apremium or specialty coffee. 50% of the coffee consumed in Europe and America is already premium coffee. Coffee farmers in Africa would benefit from more agricultural training and advice. With Africa’s abundant natural resources and long history of coffee production, its coffee industry is poised to grow rapidly within the next few years, perhaps even dominating the global market.
