Green Coffee Prices Soar


Coffee prices have exploded since June as worldwide consumption has increased. Over recent years global coffee reserves have been dwindled to a low levels. Prices have continued to rise despite the increase in production from brazil and the expected 13% increase in their next crop.

Production is expected to be slightly lower in Vietnam, while significantly lower production is anticipated in Indonesia and several other exporting countries as a result of unfavourable weather conditions. Colombia will find it difficult to recover its former production level since many coffee trees hav been affected by coffee leaf rust and access to appropriate treatment is limited by the high cost of inputs. This will not help increasing prices and there seems to be no end in sight at the moment.
