Coffee Market in Canada - Statistics & Facts

Coffee is among the most popular beverages in Canada and the world. Relished for its rich flavor and aroma, coffee can also act as a mild stimulant due to its caffeine content. While coffee is commonly served hot, a plethora of coffee varieties and specialties now exist, including iced coffee and mocha. In 2014, single-serve coffee accounted for 31.1 percent of the hot beverage market in Canada, with traditional mainstream coffee coming in second place.


The two most commonly produced and consumed coffee strains are Arabica and Robusta. Cultivated throughout Africa, Central and South America and South East Asia, coffee is one of the world’s largest export commodities. In 2015, Canada imported approximately 624.74 million U.S. dollars of coffee (approximately 866 million Canadian dollars as of December 2015), largely from producers in Columbia and Brazil.

In 2015, Canada more than doubled their export of domestic, electric coffee and tea makers. Due to single-serve coffee growing in popularity, single-serve beverages saw the largest year-over-year sales growth in 2014, with sales of coffee pods surpassing those of standard fresh ground coffee that year. Despite this specialty coffee trend, numerous consumers are not interested in owning a single-serve coffee maker, 37 percent claiming that coffee pods create too much waste.

In 2015, 67 percent of consumers reported consuming coffee in the past day. While home is the leading location for coffee consumption among Canadians, 77 percent of respondents said they visit coffee cafes at least monthly. Coffee chains Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Second Cup are among the leading coffee retailers in Canada.
