There is now a worldwide shortage of coffee beans. If you think people are cranky now, you haven’t seen anything, yet.
a global coffee shortage may be on the brink. Back in September of 2021, ABC reported that, “importers warned of a shortage that could last three years”. Coffee lovers can also expect prices hikes. Coffee retailer Starbucks has said that, “they are planning to hike its prices this year.” This was its third increase since October.
This shortage doesn’t only affect the economy, coffee lovers, and major food retailers. Small business owners are also expected to be impacted as well. These businesses struggle to gain access to grants and loans that the bigger companies do.
The future for coffee remains uncertain so for now, coffee lovers should savor every sip.
Seriously, though. The shortages of everything are going to get worse.
