Speaking for all the coffee Drinkers

Sunday, September 12, 2010

When I say how disheartening it was to see the article on CNN titled, "Coffee prices on the rise."

A daily coffee drinker myself I was drawn to read this article. Wondering how much my wallet would feel the pinch of the so called higher prices. Well, it turns out that it isn't a recent rise but a slow and steady climb. 

Apparently bad weather in South Africa, the fact that Vietnam and Brazil have become hoarders and the US just doesn't have the coffee crop it used to, is what is leading to the nearly 13 year high in coffee prices. Folgers, Dunkin Donuts and Millstone already raised their prices up 10% and Maxwell House with a 9% rise and K cups will see a 10% increase by October.

The interesting part of this article is where it says the price of coffee might not be felt at your local Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks since they are individually priced. So have we come to the point where grabbing your quick cup o' joe at one of these establishments before work will actually be cheaper? Which defuncts the previous, save money by brewing your own at home. 

I must say, a pumpkin coffee everyday would suit me just fine, Yummm. I just hope the supply gets larger because if we see a day without coffee at all, it would mean a lot of early morning brawls.
