Costa Rican coffee growers unable to meet Starbucks
Despite early rains and an optimistic forecast for the next two coffee harvests in Costa Rica, growers are concerned that demand will outpace supply and may not be able to meet orders from Starbucks.
Starbucks is not the only buyer affected. Green Mountain, a staunch rival of Starbucks in the household coffee arena, is another prominent buyer of high-quality beans from Costa Rica.
The German coffee brand Hochland Kaffee is another fan of Costa Rican coffees, as are Nespresso and Peet’s Coffee and Tea from the United States.
