Covid-19 Resource Center

Last updated: July 13, 2021

Since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health crisis, NCA has received numerous questions about the impact the pandemic could have on coffee: Is it safe to drink? Can the coronavirus be transmitted or contracted via coffee or coffee packaging? What about the U.S. food supply in general -- is it safe?

Coffee itself has never been considered a means of coronavirus transmission, and the risk of transmitting the virus via coffee packaging is extremely low, according to the CDC.

So no matter how you buy or brew your coffee, rest assured that America's favorite beverage is completely safe to drink.
