Coffee consumption benefits Houston economy
Houston, coffee capital of the world? Well, kind of.
The processing plant of the Maximus Coffee Group has been on the east side of downtown for around 70 years, and is the largest coffee processing facility in the world.
We only drink half as much coffee as our forebears did in 1946. They were likely to down a cup with breakfast, lunch, dinner and oftentimes in-between. As a matter of fact, that Maxwell House coffee that grandma loved so much may have been processed right here in Houston at Maximus Coffee. We today, though, are more…discerning, and have become accustomed to so many choices: the variety of kinds of coffee, the variety of coffee outlets, and the variety of manners of brewing our favorite java.
Leo Vasquez, the Executive Vice President of the Maximus Coffee Group says, “from our global business perspective, we see coffee consumption steadily increasing in the United States, as well as significant growth globally as traditionally ‘tea’ markets adopt coffee as a beverage of choice. The Houston and Texas economy clearly benefits from the global coffee trade.”
