The coffee harvest in Brazil, which accounts for 40 per cent of the world's coffee production, has been hit hard by both frost and drought. While this will present challenges worldwide, it also offers new opportunities, says Löfbergs Group.

Reports of poor harvests lead to higher coffee prices – but also new opportunities

Reports are pointing to a disastrous coffee harvest in Brazil but rising prices are not the only outcome. The challenging harvest exposes the convoluted and unfair mechanisms of the coffee trade, and the environmental and climate challenges that the whole industry must solve together. The good news is that when challenges become so apparent, it gives us the opportunity to do something about them.
