Indonesia brews higher coffee profits

A 50 percent increase in the cost of beans, plus drought in Brazil, are expected to benefit Aceh’s 50,000 coffee farms.

The global price of coffee beans has risen by more than 50 percent.

One of the main reasons for the increase is drought in Brazil.

Three years ago, prices doubled in one season and this year looks like it will follow a similar trend.

Indonesia stands to benefit from both increased prices and good harvests.

In Aceh, 50,000 family farms depend on coffee crops.
