How to say coffee in Chinese


Chinese tea is famous, Chinese coffee is not as popular, but they are now moving to coffee trends gradually. Coffee was initially brought to China by Jesuit in the late 1800s. Coffee boomed in the 1930s when places like Shanghai were famous destinations with the Western adventurer. At the time, many cafes were run by Westerners.

It's been a bust for a few decades, but another boom started in the late 1980s. And this time, many of the coffee companies are owned or run by the Chinese, and there are now orchards that produce green coffee for export and domestic, and every year the area and coffee production continue to grow. In China, coffee drinking is seen as a fashion statement and a luxury associated with the West rather than something made at home. But in general, consumption is increasing, and numbers are tolerating it. Most coffee consumption in China is currently in the form of instant coffee. As coffee is still new, the Chinese will need time to appreciate freshly brewed coffee. And since instant coffee is easy to find and relatively cheap, these are the only reason for its popularity. And don't forget that tea is a national drink, very affordable, and has been for thousands of years. So there is a lot of competition for coffee in China.

In terms of retail coffee, in 2004, Starbucks had more than 100 stores in China but now has more than 400 locations, so it is expected that the trend towards freshly brewed and roasted coffee will increase. But Starbucks needs to be concerned, as local competition has emerged as direct competition. A local Chinese coffee chain used Chinese characters that were similar to Starbucks. Starbucks sued. Coffee seems to have a long history of development in China.

In 1988, the Chinese government and the United Nations Development Program launched a coffee production project in Yunnan Province. With Nestle, the coffee-growing area grew exponentially. Yunnan has the same climate and conditions as parts of South America, so theoretically, the area's quality should be much higher. But they had to deal with things like the dry leaf coffee virus and quality control. Like Vietnamese Robusta coffee, a large amount of Arabic coffee comes from China. They grow Robusta, mainly in Hainan Island and Fujian Province, but it represents only about 20% of the total growth in the country.

Between 1997 and 2003, coffee sales in China increased by 90%; and the numbers continue to grow to the present.  As a result of the world's green coffee prices, retail coffee prices in China have fallen. This raised awareness about coffee, and as a result, increased interest in investing in both green coffees grew and Internet cafes, and coffee shops.
