The general girector of the Russian Association of Producers of Coffee and Tea, Ramaz Chanturiy, believes the world coffee consumption will grow by up to 360,000 tonnes next year. According to news agency Rossiyskaya Gazeta, the expectation is that product prices increase at least 3% worldwide. In Russia, the situation, according to the expert, the value may increase further with the possibility of the end of tax exemption for industrial grinders.

Given the economic crisis, the global consumption of Robusta coffee grew last year, according to different estimates. Being cheaper, roasting industries started using more species in place of Arabica with noblest beans and expensive and highest market value. For companies and consultancies, the outlook is that the trend of substitution of Arabic for Robusta in roasted and ground blends should continue in 2013.
