    Since coffee harvest season is around the corner (actually some low quality & low altitude Arabica and Robusta beans are now being harvested..), here is some information about current (as of October) coffee bean pricing.
    it is per pound.
    * Robusta : $0.92 per pound
    * Brazilian Naturals : $1.26
    * Guatemalan : $1.15
    * Colombian : $1.45

    These are regular commercial grade Arabica beans, not specialty beans which are 85 point and up.

    ICO (Int'l Coffee Organization) announced that on Oct 13, 2017, Venezuela became the "78th and newest member of ICO".

    Just curious...is that mean there are 78 coffee producing countries in the world?

    In Canada, traditional coffee (like instant or ground coffee) is most likely to be consumed by those aged 65 to 82. (old habits!!!! like my mom)
    However, specialty coffee and frozen blended coffee are strongest among those aged 18 to 49. (yes, my daughter is one of them. she is 19! she loves crappy drinks like frappuccino..etc)
    Also, those aged from 18 to 34 are more interested in coffees that are ethically sourced and certified eg. FT, Rainforest and Organic..etc. (I guess these young people does not know the truth about these stupid organizations...)

    By the way, I got this info from Canada coffee association :+)

    Alex,

    I sometimes get a good chuckle when you say what's on your mind.

    Crappy drinks (sometimes you call them fu-fu drinks)
    Stupid organizations

    I had to laugh out loud today.

    Coffee plant can live for between 60 and 80 years. sometimes even more. No one really knows... (it is a plant, so it does not live many hundreds of years...)

    when the coffee plants are young and active (between 4 to 10 years), they produce a lot of good coffee and have very green and plenty of leaves...

    but when they get old... no fruits and very tall yet not many leaves...

    So, in a coffee farm, when coffee plants get about 15 years old, they cut and prune the plants, about 10 inch above from ground. it will take about another 3 to 4 years to produce coffee.

    the largest coffee shop in the world is at Saudi Arabia!!! (yes, Saudi of all places... I thought that USA might be a winner, but I was wrong!)
    the name of the coffee shop is Al Masaa Cafe in Riyadh. 1050 seats!!!! wholly crap! (I sure love to sell my coffee to this coffee shop :+)

    by the way, Swiss Espresso Extractor (created by A. Schurr, J.Luond in Switzerland) in 2008 can brew 3 gallons of espresso in just one minute. Another Guinness book of record.
    Certainly, that cafe in Saudi must have few of these in their coffee shop!!!
    here is link of that espresso machine

    Kopi Luwak, the world’s most expensive coffee (up to $600 per pound) is:

    got this from the reader digest

    Sixteenth-century Muslim rulers banned coffee because of

    a) Its stimulating effects
    b) The gambling that took place in coffeehouses
    c) The black market that sprang up in the coffee trade
    d) Sufi mystics who wanted coffee limited to spiritual ceremonies
