General assessment of the situation of the coffee market in 2019 you do not know


Thành viên mới
2019 saw a spectacularly dichotomous coffee market, with historically low prices for much of the year for the basest commodity coffees — those that hold the bulk of the coffee trade — and astronomical highs at public auctions for the best of the best coffees.


Green coffee traders just have average price. They have been feeling increased pressure from the more progressive specialty coffee roasters who facilitate or improve transparency, traceability and supply chain relationships.

We will present the biggest news stories of the year on the coffee trade and the organizations who are making it hum everyday. There was a lot of news on individual importing and trading companies; loads of high-profile auctions; and lots of moves from organized groups at coffee’s origin responding to low prices. There’s also some good old-fashioned consumer market news.

But one big market-related story is also worth noting also for its scope and vision. At the start of this year, the first edition of The Specialty Coffee Transaction guide was released, marking an unprecedented achievement in price discovery, especially for coffee roasters who value sustainability and integrity alongside quality.
