I’ve heard the suggestion to drink Sumatran coffee to help the tsunami recovery a few times lately. I think it’s a good idea. The skeptic in me says that it won’t amount to a hill of beans (pun intended). But then again, Sumatra coffee is really good! In fact, it’s some of the best coffee beans out there.
Additionally, won’t the cost of tea go up? I think Sri Lanka produces like 80% of the world’s tea (don’t quote me on the number).
Just like tomatoes and citrus are costly right now because of the Florida hurricanes (though mulch is cheap), I think Sumatra coffee and the price of tea will also increase soon.
