Abstract

This paper estimates the world demand for coffee using a dataset for 88 countries from 1990 to 2005, and dynamic panel data estimators. Results suggest that the income elasticity of demand is non constant and varies according to a country’s income level. Higher income countries have lower income elasticities than middle and low income ones. Differences in price elasticities are not significant across income groups.
