Hide / Show Abstract

The extreme volatility of the price of coffee brings drastic price changes over months, weeks or days, or even within the same trading day. Crop prospects vary widely due to unforeseen events, for example drought, frost or disease. High coffee prices encourage production growth, while low prices result in falling output. The balance of supply and demand is subject to many uncertainties that affect price trends and therefore represent price risk. All levels of the coffee industry are exposed to risk from sudden price changes.
