HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam - The coffee crop in Brazil, the world's
largest producer of the bean, may slump by as much as 20 percent in
2008 because of dry weather, the head of the International Coffee
Organization says.

There is no crisis. The price of coffee in the world continues to
improve from the dreadful crisis lows of 1999-2004. The NYBOT forward
h (2006) was $.9660 LB a year ago today. Today the forward ch
(2007) closed at $1.2580. That is an increase of about 30% in raw
material costs in 12 months.

Overhead expenses particularly those most sensitive to fuel costs have
risen beyond expectations, insurance, labor, taxes and other costs of
doing business have also advanced during the year. The price of coffee
will rise to meet the needs of the companies who make the stuff to
deliver a return to their investors, and make a living (hopefully a
good living) so that they can support the families that depend on them
for a pay check, health insurance support, and other benefits at home
and coffee kids and their families at origin too.

If the value of a pound of raw coffee had remained at
unsustainable/below subsistance levels for another few seasons that
would have been a crisis.

think coffee is really a bi-annual plant.
