The mighty coffee multinationals are now paying the increasingly poor coffee farmers 60 percent less per pound of coffee in real terms than in 1983. The current coffee price of $ 1.28 per lb is equal to just 52 cents in 1983. The price of coffee in 1983 was US$ 1.20 to US$ 1.40 per lb, under the International Coffee Agreement. That inflation-adjusted amount would now equate to a price per pound of coffee of between $ 2.95 & $ 3.44, well above the current $ 1.28 per lb.

The increase in Productivity could offset the 30 year of missed inflation?
