Coffee Quote

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equalâ„¢:
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The *Vienna Coffee Company.
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.
~Author Unknown

WEEKLY DEAL: Columbian coffee prices reach 11 year high


Coming from the Financial Times,

By Javier Blas in London

Published: April 9 2009 03:00 | Last updated: April 9 2009 03:00


Prices for Colombian wholesale coffee have skyrocketed recently causing the American market's coffee retailers to raise their prices by almost 20 percent at time when customers are "tightening their belts."

Colombia is the leading seller in specialty grade mild washed Arabica coffee and third top-seller for coffee overall. The prices have raised due to the amount of rain and a government program to renew all old coffee trees to aid in the medium future.

The scarcity in top quality coffee has made buyers resort to buying similar style coffee from surrounding countries such as Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. Unfortunately, due to bad weather and exports running low, the situation is not much better.

To find out more about this topic please click here.

This week's deal pertains to Colombian Coffee...

Colombia is the third seller for coffee over all in the world behind which two countries?
a. Vietnam
b. Brazil
c. Ethiopia
d. Guatemala

(please pick two) and receive a free 2oz bag of Colombian Supremo coffee.
