  1. Up to 10,000
  2. Up to 20,000

As much as 10,000 pounds of coffee cherries can be produced from an acre of coffee bushes. There are two coffee beans contained within each cherry. This yields approximately 2,000 pounds of beans after processing. Which translates to about 400 pounds of coffee beans after roasting. It takes a lot of coffee trees, and vast amounts of acreage to produce the volume of coffee consumed each day.
