I Marsh s fantastic Coffee Price won t change taste May by David c. Martin and Terry Kirkpatrick associated press writers done to expect cheaper Coffee any time soon but do watch for a change in the taste. The turnabout in the world Coffee Market since 1975 leaves american Coffee drinkers with these prospects continued High prices Over the coming months until the world production moves Back to prefro6t Levels a deteriorating Quality of . Coffee blends As firms try to hold Down prices by buying cheaper harsher Coffee Beans. A the Chance that some Small Coffee roasters will be forced out of an already concentrated Industry. Meantime More Price hikes already have been put in motion. They wont be Felt at the retail level for several months because of the Normal lag Between wholesale and retail prices moves. Maxwell House the nations largest Coffee company recently announced an increase of 20 cents in its wholesale Price to 13.11 a Pound second largest Folger announced an increase to $3 28 government and Industry officials Are reluctant to predict future prices the Price of the bean itself Isnit the Only thing that has gone up govern orients of producing countries boasted Export taxes increasing their direct revenues in Brazil the Export tax went from $21 a bag in the fall of 1975 to $103 this january. On a per Pound basis the tax went from 16 to 78 cents you can to apply that figure to the Price you pay however because it takes More than a Pound of Green Beans to make one Pound of ground Coffee and the Coffee you buy is a blend of coffees from different nations Supply has a lot to do with Price Coffee production had been increasing steadily in the first half of the �?T706, due to new techniques of planting and increased use of fertilizer much of the increased Supply came from Brazil.

The 1976-77 crop also will be lower than the Prerost level . Experts estimate it at 9 5 million 132-Pound bags brazilian officials say 5 million to 6.5 million bags. Because it takes three years for a new tree to produce its first Beans and another two to reach full production it ask about our Tuxedo rental service will be 1978 or 1979 before the brazilian Harvest again approaches previous Levels. The demand for Coffee this year is estimated at about 5 million bags More than the Supply.
