Let’s have a look at the Vietnamese coffee export data for the first 7 months of 2023
During this period, Vietnam has exported a total of 1.13 million metric tons of coffee, yielding an coffee export value of USD 2.74 billion. Although this represents a marginal 0.1% decrease in terms of quantity compared to the same period in 2022, it also highlights a significant 6.5% increase in export revenue.
When delving into the specifics of the various coffee types exported, it becomes evident that Robusta coffee remains the dominant variety. With over 1 million metric tons exported, Robusta contributed significantly to the total export value, reaching USD 2.14 billion. In contrast, Arabica green coffee beans constituted a more modest export quantity of 28,300 metric tons, equivalent to an export value of nearly USD 117 million. Decaffeinated coffee beans accounted for an approximate volume of 19,600 metric tons, translating to an export value of USD 69.6 million. Furthermore, the export of roasted and soluble coffee totaled 62,200 metric tons (prior to conversion into the equivalent weight of green coffee beans), amounting to a substantial export value of almost USD 402 million. Notably, the export volume of roasted and soluble coffee comprised 5.5% of the overall export volume, while its export value constituted 14.7% of the total export revenue across all coffee types.
