The coffee production grew immensely in the Ivory Coast during the second world war. In the 1970s Ivory Coast was the third leading producer of coffee in the world. In 2000 the coffee production was 380,000 tonnes.
Though production of coffee in Ivory Coast had declined over the years due to civil wars, it is currently on the rise. By 2020, the country targets to achieve an annual production of 400,000 tonnes. All in all, coffee makes up for a large percentage of the country’s exports.
