Newer, different data[edit]

This article may contain newer data, as it was published April 29, 2010. However, it uses different units than does the current source: liters of prepared coffee, not kg of beans. This strongly disfavors nations where people consume more potently-brewed stuff. White 720 (talk) 20:55, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

I agree...that article misleading. It's not suprise that on top we see countries where "coffee" is actualy more coloured water than coffe itself. Also, iam not sure is this rank also good. Normative for espreso is 7 grams of coffe per cup. So to drink 12kg of caffe as top's nations do...every person should drink around 4-5 esspreso equivalent every day...which is hardly to belive for me.

Hi, I tried checking the reference for the data and the link seems to be broken. On the table in this article it is not clear in which units is the data represented. Is it kg of beans? Is it kg of liquid? I think it should be explicit. 81.207.225.251 (talk) 20:23, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

I concur, regarding the broken link. I did a cursory search at the site of the purported link, to see if the link had been moved and/or updated, with no luck. There's no way to ascertain the veracity of this data. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.53.251.77 (talk) 09:15, 2 July 2012 (UTC)


A report from the International Coffee Organization (ICO) has some variant data in their 2009 report. Apparently the original statistics on the World Ressources Institute (WRI) website have since been removed entirely.

I'd like to contest the validity of the data. If one cross references the population of the listed countries and builds a ratio based on the kg/year consumption, some of the numbers get really odd. Gibraltar's population is 30,001 they consume 3.40 kg/year, this is about 113.3296 milligrams per person per year. Likewise Bermuda's population is 64,237 they consume 3.30 kg/year which is about 51.3723 mg/year. Where as the top consumer of coffee Finland which has a population of 5,470,820 and consumes 12.00 kg/year only consumes 2.1935 mg/year per person. These just seem odd.

SVG and article[edit]

The data and the image do not match. Canada is listed as 4-6kg in the image and 6.4kg in the article. - BalthCat (talk) 23:15, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Text stort on 3rd column[edit]

If sorted by the third column, Finland is not at the top of the list because it is "12" and 1 is less than 9 in ASCII. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.63.152.164 (talk) 14:21, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Revamp[edit]

I searched online but did not find any sources with recent data. Some sites even listed this article as their reference! Every source I found was using an outdated World Resources Institute data set that appears not to be online anymore. Since we don't yet have a legitimate recent source, it's important that the low quality of the data is immediately stated in the intro. If someone has a source, please add it to the external links or mention it on this talk page! (Heroeswithmetaphors) talk 01:32, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Cups?[edit]

1.6 cups is quite arbitrary. Small cups? Big cups? What is a "cup" defined as in this article? 87.52.38.196 (talk) 09:34, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Needs serious help![edit]

The cups/day column needs to be deleted until real data can be put here.

The source contains no mention of cups. And there is absolutely no way the average person in Finland drinks 5.7 cups of coffee every day.

A recent Atlantic article using qz.com as its source, says something much more reasonable:

This is probably the qz article used as the source...
http://qz.com/166983/where-the-worlds-biggest-coffee-drinkers-live/
..and this would appear to be a chart based on the Euromonitor data used in the qz article:
