Brazil drought jolts global coffee market

Worst drought in decades hits the world's largest coffee producer, spurring fears of price rises globally.

    Brazil has been hit by the worst drought in decades affecting coffee farmers, who might see their production shrink to its lowest in more than 30 years.

    Because of the dry spell, coffee prices all over the world could rise.
