Brazil continued its dominance in the global green coffee trade. In 2014, Brazil exported 1,988 thousand tonnes of green coffee totaling 6,053 million USD, 32% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner on the global green coffee market was Germany, where it supplied 21% of its total green coffee exports in value terms, accounting for 32% of Germany's total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, Brazil was a net exporter of green coffee. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was more pronounced.

Colombia and Switzerland were among the other main global suppliers of green coffee in 2014. However, the fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were Switzerland (+25% per year) and Ethiopia (+14% per year). Switzerland significantly strengthened its position in the global export structure.

In 2014, Brazil's top 5 trading partners were Germany, the U.S., Italy, Belgium and Japan, with a combined 67% share of Brazil's green coffee exports. The share of Belgium increased (+4 percentage points), while the share of Italy illustrated negative dynamics (-2 percentage points).
