Here’s another look at coffee prices, which seem to be going nowhere but up lately. As shown in the below chart, raw coffee prices are up by over 67% in the past 12 months, with much of the increase coming in the last 6 months or so.
If the market doesn’t turn soon, we can unfortunately expect another round of price increases from our roasters and suppliers in the near future. Keep in mind that our refreshments experts are always standing by to discuss alternatives to possibly save you money — for example, our own Estate Select coffee is less expensive than Green Mountain. In the single-cup world, Flavia is less expensive than Keurig, and pods beat both “big name” alternatives.
