Saudi Arabia Coffee Market – Overview
Coffee is a popular brewed beverage made from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of certain types of coffee fruits. The seeds are separated from the berries and then roasted to produce a consumable product. The growing acceptance of Western culture in Saudi Arabia is due to the rise of the young population and foreign tourism. Arabica is more prevalent in this region, with low caffeine, high fat, and acidity. The central region of the country has the largest share of income due to its larger population, trade offices, and employment opportunities. The presence of famous Haji Places in Mecca and Medina also contributes to the growth of the Saudi Arabia coffee market, as it increases tourist footfall and demand for coffee in cafes. Specialty coffee in Saudi Arabia is also contributing to the market’s growth. Coffee shops now roast beans in front of customers and serve the coffee in Dallah, an Arabian coffee pot. Younger and older age groups have varying preferences, with younger people preferring mixed coffee or coffee with milk and flavored syrup, while older people prefer Turkish or espresso. This diversity in preference provides quality and variety in the coffee shops.
