A Coffee Shortage May Be Coming

Coffee hoarding

We're all drinking so much coffee there may be a coffee shortage in our future. How much coffee? Well so much coffee that an extra 40 million to 50 million bags of coffee will need to be made to cover the shortage. Bloomberg reports that with climate change there has been a decrease in production. The type of coffee bean with the biggest threat is Arabica, which is the kind that the coffee chain favors like Starbucks. We'll have to see what happens in the coming months but we thought you'd like to know - START HOARDING COFFEE NOW! :-)

Good point Tom. Also, Starbucks isn't the only chain that favors Arabica. Some Italian espresso blends contain a little Robusta because of its harsh flavor profile. However, If you're drinking coffee that isn't Arabica it's most likely because the company is using Robusta as a cheap filler.

There won't be a coffee shortage, but there will be the inevitable price increase. Just wanted to clarify that for you :)

And yo start hoarding coffee now? No way, not unless you mean green beans and you plan on home roasting.
