Kenyan coffee market is projected to steadily increase by over USD 2 Million between 2023 and 2025

It’s no secret coffee is an invaluable commodity to the global market, often present in numerous households as a staple beverage. Often described as bright, fruity, and complex, with notes of blackcurrant, citrus, and floral undertones, Kenyan coffee is a huge contributor to Kenya’s GDP and economic stability.  Small scale farmers, especially those in favorable high altitude regions with rich fertile soils, are the largest producers of our world famous coffee. It’s little wonder the coffee value chain is a well-regarded and globally recognized system that produces some of the world’s finest and most sought-after coffee beans.

According to a paper published in August, 8th, 2023, by Statista Research Department, revenue in the Kenyan coffee market was projected to steadily increase by over 2 million USD between 2023 and 2025. This translates to a 2.81 percent increase in a period of less than two years.  The revenue has been calculated to amount to 80.54 million U.S. dollars in 2025.
