    Coffee sellers worldwide are raising their prices as some high quality coffees are being produced at their lowest rate in fifty years.

    International giant Starbucks will see a 17 percent price hike in bagged coffee starting in mid-July, and their rise seems to be representative across the board.

    But similarly to the raising price of oil, coffee drinkers are expected to keep on consuming, regardless of the hikes.
