JK, I hate to disagree with you but there is still plenty of Arabica both from Central America, Colombia harvested late last year and early this year and Mitaca waiting to find a home. Peru is in the same boat with the newly harvested crop. Slugish differentials and lack of interest support this idea. Therefore, part of the low shipment issue is definitely lack of demand and quite possible some stock buildup at the producer level like Phil suggests.
