    "We have planted 667,000 acres (270,000 hectares) of coffee and of that 477,000 acres (193,000 hectares) have rust, affecting 70 percent of the total," he added.

    Between this and the devalued dollar it's not unreasonable to expect $25.00lb Folgers by fall....

    Might be a good investment...

    I am sure somebody will read this and wonder how a non-metallic biological life form can rust. To clear up the confusion:

    designed to make of their victory,
    there would have been no surrender at
    Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me.
    Had I foreseen these results of subjugation,
    I would have preferred to die at Appomattox
    with my brave men, my sword in my right hand." - Robert E. Lee to Governor Fletcher S. Stockdale (D-Texas), 1870

    I strongly disagree. Coffee is very reslient to supply shocks, probably due to the enormous supply available for coffee, being a known cash crop throughout every hemisphere. Inflation, however, has proven to take its toll on something as ubiquitous as coffee.

    Thanks I was confused. I thought maybe the water supply was coating it with rust.

    Dollars stores sell whole bottles of caffeine pills for a dollar. If you buy in bulk, you might even be able to get caffeine cheaper online.

    All you guys need to invest in growing your own coffee beans. That's what I do.

    If the price of coffee gets too high, more people will switch to energy drinks, soda, tea or caffeine pills. I'm sure everything will work out. I see more of an issue with chocolate as the alternative options are potentially more limited.

    Thanks to speculators, who remove volatility from the market, you won't be able to profit from that. That shortage is already priced in by the market. You can only profit from information that is not available to everybody else too.

    Or to put it differently, it doesn't make any sense to buy now if you fear higher prices. If coffee is so durable that you can stock it, every seller can do the same and would have already done it, in which case today's prices already include the additional demand because of the coming supply shortage.

    KONA coffee is $20 a pound... I buy wholesale direct from the main island



    only a matter of time before the DC subsidies/corporate welfare to Starbucks, et al, start flowing to keep prices down.
