The coffee friend is invited home, every day, every hour, a friend we know badly .....
The coffee trees
World coffee production is almost 100% from two coffee species : coffea arabica (or arabica that comes from the Arabic word), coffea canephora (or robusta). They both belong to the botanical group coffea, about 70 species of coffee plants.
The specialty coffee market
Specialty coffee accounts for about 1% of world production. These are coffees rated at least 80/100 whose price does not depend on the stock market, but the quality and rarity.
It is a new and global approach of the market : cultivation of different botanical varieties according to the nature of the terroir by the producer, evolution of roasting profiles of green beans by the roaster, improvement of the methods of preparation of the coffee of the barista (Italian term) this refers to a person who works behind a counter to serve both espresso and alcoholic beverages, as well as being a rough bartender).
The convenience market
This is the opposite of the specialty coffee market, the convenience market is the commodity market. It is played between the New York Stock Exchanges for Arabica and London for Robusta.
It is a speculative market whose prices are denominated in dollars. Neither coffee quality nor production costs are included in the final price. This method of transaction complicates the life of producers because it does not take into account the work done and the economic reality of the farms.
