Brazilian Coffee Export Network: An Analysis Using SNA


Coffee is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, Brazil being its largest producer and exporter. The present study aims to identify the Brazilian coffee trade regarding import markets, main routes, volumes, and main grower states. The proposed methodology adopts a social network analysis approach using the software UCINET 6.0© and Netdraw 2,166©. A graphical network is developed to analyze the coffee flow among countries. Besides, the degree of centrality is measured using a matrix that considers 1 or zero. Our results show that Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Espírito Santo have more influence on the network and degree of centrality, inducing the fact that they export to several countries. Germany, United States, Italy, and Japan represent the most important markets. Finally, we conclude that Germany is the leading Brazilian partner with 21% of country coffee export and the most important player of the supply chain.
