Why and how it happened — in a newspaper column Stas Sokolov.
the milestone was recorded by the Association “rusteacoffee”, which estimates that in 2019, Russia had sold 180 thousand tons of coffee (all types) and only 140 thousand tonnes of tea. It happened for the first time in the history of observations. It is, of course, on the dry product, calculate how much he made cups of beverage, can only be very approximate.
