Coffee prices have been sliding for years, dating back to 2016 and the conventional wisdom is that a record harvest expected this year in Brazil, the world’s largest producer of coffee, is set to keep prices low. However, according to a recent report from Barron’s, prices for coffee could take off going into 2019, which isn’t great for those coffee fiends out there; it looks like your cup of joe could get a bit more expensive.
In this post, we’ll be taking a look at current real-world examples to show how supply and demand and other market forces can impact the raw materials prices of some of the typical ingredients of a cup of coffee and how that is likely to influence how much you pay for one going into 2019.

That’s not all, however, as it looks like the milk you put in your coffee is also about to get a bit pricier to boot. In this post we will attempt to apply economics to something all economists and non-economists can understand: a cup of coffee. We’ll be taking current real-world examples to show how supply and demand can impact the prices of some of the typical ingredients for a cup of coffee and how that is likely to influence how much you pay for one in 2017.
