Monkey’s News Round Digest

In this random update of recent trade news snippets we politely offer up the following note worthy gems of complete insignificance for your delight!


Cameroon has now joined the growing list of Arabica producing territories – taking the list of nations producing green coffee to near the 100 mark – can some smart alec confirm or otherwise the complete list – SAE postcards only please!


In 2012 7850 bags were exported – compared to nil the prior year! Robusta remains a mainstay at 491000 bags plus of course cocoa


Next up is a snippet concerning Nestle – they are playing the Chinese long game by launching a brand new coffee product in the emerging Chinese market called Pu’er


The raw material for the product is grown in the traditional tea producing regions in South West China… and the aim of the project is not to sell more product and make more margin…oh no! Only to ‘deepen co-operation ‘ between the billionaire brand expert and China’s largest coffee plantation base in Yunnan Province…..


Of course ! How silly of me……Ah life’s rich tapestry eh?


Guru writes for Aromo Coffee – They are coffee experts focussed on providing convenient and tasty ways for the caffeine addict to take their medicine. Aromo supplies excellent ESE Coffee pods and superlative Senseo pods,  both of which offer the espresso and filter connoisseur  a no mess, no fuss,  super fresh and environmentally conscious method to make stunning coffee… the guys at Aromo also have a range of Dualit branded capsules which make a brilliant and economic alternative to nespresso capsules
