Price Hikes Are Coming For Your Coffee

Honcho Coffee Supplies for all your coffee needs!

We are all aware of the increase to the cost of living over the past 18 months. We are experiencing unprecedented cost for fuel, property prices have exploded, electricity keeps going up and now we are sad to say, the price hikes are expected to hit our beloved coffee!

The current climate has created a perfect storm for increasing the price of coffee due to freight costs associated with fuel price increases while the supply chains still have not recovered from the worker shortage associated with covid and shipping container delays are endless. On top of this Brazil, which is where Australia imports most of their coffee from, has been hit with environmental challenges including unseasonal frost and drought, which has forced their production levels to plummet by up to 50%. The issue here is the reduction in product, the increase in cost of production and the costs to freight are driving the costs upwards, which we will eventually feel in our hip pocket.

In addition to the global impacts, the Australian hospitality industry has almost been crippled by covid related safety measures including lockdowns, quarantine of close contacts and mandates for staff, meaning cafes are being forced to pay more in wages to keep their venue staffed. This will undoubtedly have an impact on the cost to run the business and at some point café owners will need to pass the costs down to the consumer.

While this all sounds very doom and gloom, it doesn’t have to be. Think about this… what if the most serious coffee drinkers acted now they could potentially avoid their morning ritual from breaking the bank.
