Exporting coffee to Italy
Italy is the second-largest importer of green coffee beans in Europe, after Germany. Brazil, Vietnam and India are Italy’s main coffee suppliers, accounting for approximately 64% of Italian coffee imports. Coffee is an integral part of Italian culture. The market for specialty coffees is still a very small niche market in Italy, but it brings interesting opportunities for exporters of high-quality coffees from special origins with unique stories. In addition to its own domestic market, Italy is also an important supplier of roasted coffee to other European countries, as Italian espresso blends are famous around the world.
