Invest in Coffee Stocks

Roberto Rivero

More than 2 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day, making it one of the world’s most popular drinks, as well as one of the most traded commodities on the planet. In this article, we will examine the prospect of investing in coffee, examine 2 top coffee stocks and much more!

Investing in Coffee

For many people, a morning cup of coffee borders on necessity, and is likely to be one of the last things trimmed from a budget.

Nevertheless, despite being a staple for many people, as with most commodities, coffee prices can be rather volatile. With agricultural commodities, such as coffee, this is partly due to the fact that they are only produced in certain countries, and their harvest is strongly dependent on good weather conditions.

For example, Brazil accounts for roughly 40% of the global supply of coffee. Consequently, if Brazil has a particularly bad - or particularly good - harvest, this can have an effect on global prices.

Yet coffee consumption is forecast to continue growing in the future, which means that companies operating in the industry could stand to benefit from increasing demand. So, for those feeling bullish on the industry, what are some of the best coffee stocks to watch in 2024?

Best Coffee Stocks to Watch

In the following sections, we will highlight two top coffee companies for those who are interested in investing in the industry to watch.

Top Coffee Stocks


The United States by far has the largest coffee market in the world in terms of revenue, and Starbucks brews the nation’s favourite cup. But it’s not just the US where the coffee chain is popular.

Starbucks has more than 38,000 locations in 80 different countries and continues growing with little sign of slowing down. In the year ended 1 October 2023, Starbucks’ locations around the world increased by 2,327.

In the same year, Starbucks reported record net revenue of $36 billion and an operating income of $5.9 billion, year on year increases of 11.6% and 27.1% respectively.

As well as operating cafes around the world, Starbucks has also successfully tapped into the growing market of consumers who brew coffee at home through the sale of their bagged coffee beans.

In addition to delivering robust long-term growth historically, Starbucks is also a dividend paying coffee stock, with a trailing dividend yield of 2.5%.


Nestle is a hugely diversified food and drink company, which has more than 2,000 brands across a number of categories, including coffee, baby food, chocolate, bottled water, frozen food and dairy products, to name a few.

Consequently, Nestle is more than just a coffee stock, representing a far more diversified option than Starbucks. Depending on the individual investor, this could be either a positive or a negative. For those exclusively looking to invest in coffee, Nestle may not be the best option, as coffee only accounts for a portion of its revenue. However, for those who are happy to sacrifice exposure to coffee for more diversification and, thus, potentially less risk, Nestle could fit the bill.

Nestle’s powdered & liquid beverage segment, of which coffee is a major component, is the company’s largest source of revenue. In terms of coffee, Nestle not only owns internationally renowned brands Nescafe and Nespresso, but also markets and distributes Starbucks’ packaged coffee, pods and ready-to-drink products around the world.

Nestle is also a company with a long and reliable history of paying dividends. The company has increased or maintained its annual dividend every year since 1959, with the stock currently yielding 3.1%.
