The coffee sector in Brazil is set to grow by two percent in Brazil in 2015. The main driver of the growth is the production of coffee in capsules, where an increase in sales of 40 to 50 percent are expected according to the Brazilian Coffee Industry Association, ABIC.
Coffee is consumed in 98.2 percent of Brazilian homes and machines using single-dose capsules are increasingly popular.
“As the sector is undergoing technological renewals, particularly in what we call single dose [coffee capsules], the volume of investment in recent years has grown considerably,” ABIC’s executive director Natan Herskowicz stated. “Research indicates that in 2014 we had an increase of 54 percent compared to 2013,” he added.
