Coffee is probably one of the most popular and consumed beverage in the world with over 400 billion cups consumed annually. It is one of the largest traded commodities in the world and forms a global industry employing almost 20 million people worldwide.
There are two main varieties of coffee – Arabica and Robusta. Arabicas constitute about 65% of world production and are grown mainly in South and Central America. Robustas comprise about 35% of world production and are grown mainly in Africa and Asia. Cote d’Ivorie is the world’s third largest producer of robusta.
With Suryadeep International’s geographical focus on Africa it was natural for the company to add coffee beans to its product portfolio. The company buys the produce from as close to the farm gate as viable to keep the costs down and control the quality.
