Green Coffee Outlook – May 2021 – for Sweet Maria’s and Coffee Shrub

Stay up to date on coffee we have coming down the pipeline and our latest green coffee outlook and arrivals schedule.

Green Coffee Notes for May 2021:

  • The outlook on port congestion up and down the West Coast is not great. Container ships continue to be backed up at all West Coast destinations, and as of 2 weeks ago, there were a reported 25 ships waiting to berth in Oakland.
  • This is typically the slow time of the year at the Port, but record breaking numbers of incoming containers are expected to roll right into the late Summer rush when retailers start stocking for the holiday season.
  • There are many factors in play contributing to the long transit times. Recent examples we’ve experienced include container and equipment shortages at ports of origin, delays at transfer ports, and difficulty booking space on shipping vessels. Isolated, each one has the potential to add days, if not weeks to transit times. Together, we’re experiencing 1 to 2 month delays in some cases.
  • This is not just a “coffee problem”, and cuts across all industries. These massive disruptions in the flow of goods are greatly affected by an inability to adjust to the unprecedented peaks and valleys in consumer demand throughout the pandemic, putting stress on the entire global supply chain.
  • It’s not all doom and gloom. Coffee is still moving, albeit slowly, and we’ve seen arrivals from Colombia, Tanzania and Kenya over the last two weeks. While Colombian coffees are already making their way to our offer list, Tanzania and Kenya containers are still currently in the queue at port.
  • While ETA’s are nearly impossible to nail down right now, I’m guessing that we will have our first Kenyas available by the end of May, Ethiopia and Guatemala mid-to-late June.
  • You may notice that our May/June list of “Upcoming” coffees looks a little thin. We remain cautious as we wait for coffee to land, but expect the count to grow very soon. The list of “Incoming” coffees, on the other hand, has filled out quite a bit, and includes nearly all of our coffees booked in Guatemala, Ethiopia and Kenya.

*To those waiting on Liquid Amber blend – due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in India, our shipment of Monsoon coffee has been delayed. We are still waiting for a realistic ETD on that shipment. Thanks for understanding!
