For total coffee consumption, Euromonitor combined the volume of coffee per capita that retail stores sold to consumers and that food service outlets purchased to brew.

It appears colder climates consume more of the tropical grown beverage.

Interesting also that Italy does not rank in the top ten.

Edit: Not based on per capita the U.S. is the largest coffee consumer. Mostly from pod coffee. U.S.A. also has more than 10x the population of some the top 10 per capita listed countries.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

Is it really suprising that Italy isn't on a list of countries that is determined by liquid volume in a country where .01-.02 liter drinks are the culture? Vs countries that drink predominantly 136-350ml drip cups?

Anthony, you make a very good point. It really should be based on green coffee import or better yet roasted coffee sales for non-export purposes as opposed to liters per capita.

It would more interesting, and accurate in my opinion, to measure coffee consuming countries by the weight of roasted coffee consumed rather than the beverage volume.

Slovenia is actually part of the espresso world (Trieste + suburbs sprawl across Italy, Slovenia and Croatia).

IMO the Netherlands ranks first for a good reason, my kilo per week of roasted beans counts :lol:

One could also say these figures should have been adjusted for the differing age distributions in the countries, as children rarely drink coffee ... or whether the more interesting measure is caffeine consumed from all sources, age/sex standardized.

Thanks for posting. But this is simply incorrect. Even if you toss out Germany, Canada, and of course the US.
