It was a really difficult year for the coffee industry, particularly in Brazil, which was hit with unexpected frosts in June and July. This caused many growers to lose a large portion of their crop. If that weren’t enough, Brazil was also hit with a drought early in the year which has had a lasting impact on the industry.
Due to these factors we are increasing prices on average by $0.50 per pound. We hope you understand this price change. Our goal continues to be to provide the best tasting coffee, and this adjustment will allow us to do so.
