Yahoo! Finance reports today that Kraft Foods Group, maker of Maxwell House and Yuban roast and ground coffee brands, will increase U.S. retail prices by approximately 10% beginning June 6. Kraft's price increase does not apply to its instant and single-serve coffees or Gevalia and Tassimo brands. The culprit affecting the coffee supply is a drought in Brazil that has caused an unprecedented price surge in the commodity. (Find our related coffee news posts here.) Says Orinoco Coffee & Tea CEO Pedro Ramirez, "It looks like the floodgates have opened. This news comes just days after retailer J.M. Smucker announced its coffee price hike. Unfortunately this is sure

CNN Reports today that J.M. Smucker, a leading marketer and manufacturer of fruit spreads, retail packaged coffee and many other food products, will increase the price of two of its large coffee brands sold in grocery stores, drug, mass merchandise, and club outlets. The price of Folgers® and Dunkin' Donuts® packaged products will increase by 9% as result of severe drought in Brazil that wreaked havoc on this year's harvest of Arabica beans, the most popular bean in coffee production.

Oh how we love the warm weather! Here are a few ways we like to enjoy the season. Which is your favorite? #1 PUT IT OVER ICE You’ve got the best coffee in the world (ours). Cold or hot brew it, then put it on ice! If you use the cold brew method for your iced coffee, we recommend using the Orinoco Breakfast Blend to get the sweet yet smooth taste you love. If you prefer to hot-brew your grounds before you shock them over ice, we recommend using  our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe to bring out the aromatic characteristics of the coffee. We've listed other options and have more about cold

Sure, the temperature is warming up, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying your coffee fix. Heck, no! It’s iced coffee season, but don’t be fooled: We’re not talking about serving up the cold leftover coffee from the morning and putting that over ice. (If your shop is guilty of this, for the love of coffee, please STOP!) Iced coffee requires special handling. It should be brewed strong enough to hold up to the added ice and filtered well so you don’t discover grounds in your drink. There are two basic brewing techniques for making iced coffee — hot and

It’s no secret: U.S. consumers love their cup of coffee. In fact, it’s been estimated that approximately 295.7 million cups of coffee are consumed every day in the United States. But buyer beware: The price of your favorite Cup of Joe will soon increase. Or maybe it already has. That’s because some of the largest coffee producing regions in the world are facing environmental factors the coffee commodity market simply cannot bear without reaction. We’ve been reporting for months about the drought in Brazil that has caused an unprecedented price surge in coffee, and at least one news agency suggests that

Unfortunately the rise and fall of coffee prices is still making headlines. Yesterday the online news site 24/7 Wall St. again reminds us that an unprecedented drought in Brazil has threatened the coffee crop, sending futures prices to more than two-year highs. The drought and coffee price surge has been in the news for months. About the issue, Pedro Ramirez, CEO, Orinoco Coffee & Tea said in February, “This is troubling news for the industry. I think one of the most difficult things to explain to our customers when they hear that coffee prices are on the rise is that the price of coffee we

Orinoco Coffee & Tea’s coffee roots began in 1909 when our great grandfather Leonardo Alarcon first started collecting and sorting coffee beans for a local coffee exporter in southwest Venezuela. Like the Orinoco River that flows through our homeland of Venezuela, our family has traveled many miles west, then north and finally east, settling near the seaboard of the Atlantic Ocean. While we currently call Columbia, Maryland home, we still have many family members and friends in beautiful Venezuela -- a country rich in coffee, but also economic and political turmoil, as this International Spotlight: Venezuela post by Specialty Coffee Retailer describes so well. "My

While many large coffee sellers like Starbucks have a year or more supply of coffee beans stockpiled away, there is concern consumers will soon see a price hike for their favorite morning ritual because of the current drought situation in Brazil. But will that stop them from buying? According to Bloomberg, probably not. Seems U.S. coffee drinkers are "very ritualistic."
