one way valve to tell you that coffee cultivation costs are getting higher and higher, while the income of people who grow coffee is getting lower and lower. I am afraid coffee farmers disappear in a short time.
According to the survey, coffee producing countries such as El Salvador, Costa Rica and so are facing a great loss. Many farmers have turned to other crops with relatively higher economic benefits. Or simply no longer farming. In this way, the amount of global coffee supply can not keep up with the surge in demand.
It is estimated that in 2030, the global annual demand for coffee beans will reach 200 million bags. Today, about 70 countries around the world produce coffee, but the long-term situation, will lead to the rapid disappearance of small rural farmers, only large-scale, high rate of planting can survive. The coffee market will soon be dominated by big powers. Coffee small farmers marginalization, another consequence is the diversity of coffee beans will be rapidly reduced.
Why is the coffee industry's long-term downturn? The first is the low price of bulk coffee, the second is the supply chain in the layers of exploitation. Coffee industry in the exploitation of the system, it was suggested that you can imitate the cocoa beans industry model. Cocoa beans industry is also mostly planted by small farmers, but will subsidize small farmers.
Some people think that coffee sales should follow the sales model of handmade beer, each store by a specific contract origin supply. This means that coffee prices will rise, but as long as the quality is good, consumers will still be willing to accept a higher price.
