Important factors in the world coffee market (English)

This report covers the important factors in the world coffee market as of 1954. The history of coffee production and prices had been turbulent. The slowness with which production can be increased had resulted in periods of scarcity and high coffee prices, overplanting, and periods of surpluses and low prices. This boom and bust situation had been peculiar to Brazil owing to the large proportion of world production concentrated there and the relative ease with which production could be expanded. The July, 1953 Brazilian frost altered radically the world coffee supply for 1954-1955 and 1955-1956. There was certain to be further repercussions. Its implications, therefore, were important for the economic and financial situation of all coffee exporting countries.
