This is more than the recent estimates of International Coffee Organization (ICO), which estimated that it will be 114,000 tons with a growth of 4.8% annually, and also double the than the estimation of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which estimated that it will be 66,000 tons.

Coffee Board of India Chairman Jawaid Akhtar was quoted by business-standard.com as saying that they have commissioned a study to assess the exact consumption of coffee in India and the results of the study will be available by the end of December this year.

"About 7-8 years ago, the domestic consumption was growing very slowly and now, it is growing faster. South India is the largest consumer of coffee at almost 75 percent of the total consumption," said Mr. Akhtar.
