SUMMARY

Three intense days of connections, learning opportunities and updating chats among 80 thousand cups of coffee served, 23 thousand visitors and a projected R$ 50 millions in business. This is the balance of 2019 Brazil International Coffee Week, which took place from November 20 to 22 at the Expominas, in Belo Horizonte. It gathered producers, roasters, buyers and exporters, baristas, entrepreneurs and coffee lovers from more than 40 different countries. This year, B-ICW had 220 exhibitors, 25% more than the previous year; it premiered the Producer’s Hall, with agricultural machinery and inputs; coffee-themed art and painting exhibition; and also the Espresso Design packaging contest, a way to appreciate how our favorite drink is presented.

A POSITIVE SCENARIO FOR COFFEE

CONAB (The National Supply Company) has estimated a total of 48,9 million bags of harvested coffee in 2019, an average of 27,03 bag/hectare, and Minas Gerais counting on 24.5 million bags (average 24.9 bag/hectare). It is important to notice the importance of the Brazil International Coffee Week in the State, reinforced by another figure: Coffee corresponds to 40.6% of all exportable farming activities in Minas Gerais. Green and roasted beans are sent to more than 60 countries, as: the United States, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Japan.
