Article shows a picture of harvested coffee cherries that are actually ripe. This is what growers and their buyers want us to see. In reality, growers might accept such low prices that they harvest their crops as soon as is acceptable - more likely when they're still yellow or even partially green. Faster production means higher yields, and more income... until everyone else starts doing it, and a supply glut drops the market price.

More farmers in Guatemala could, of course, start selling fully ripened coffee for better revenue - but then of course there's the problem of lower demand at higher prices, as well as the difficulty in seeking out the niche market that actually appreciates the increase in quality (and is willing to pay for it).

Yup. I have relatives who lived for a few years on Kauai, and had Kona coffee when I went to visit. I even found my out to a farm on the island before I left, and did take advantage of its tasting room.

If only the stuff weren't so expensive on the mainland... the average "Kona blend" is barely deserving of the name, and that's assuming roasters even use the minimum 10% required to call it that. There have been lawsuits against those who don't.

Most farkers probably read it the way it was intended.  We're not all out to jump on missed words or typo's.  Not all..  Some?  Sure.

Yeah, I guess enough of us have made the same typos or word omissions that they're predictable. I still like to correct myself, though, because I can blame it on my phone.
