Coffee Shortage for 2011?


You may want to add cutting down on your morning cup of coffee to your New Year's Resolutions. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to reports, we may be headed for a shortage of coffee.

Yep, Macquarie Group Ltd said in a report that stock levels of coffee are low due to disease, weather, and blocked roads in Colombia.

As we head into 2011, the global coffee supplies may become acute due to "historically low world stock levels" and Brazil "entering its lower yielding year of its biennial cycle" according to the report.

Uh oh. Tea anyone?
