How to Invest in Coffee
Coffee is a staple of diets in both developed and emerging markets. While non-consumption uses for coffee are limited, the massive intake for this resource has led to the the creation of an active coffee futures market.
Because uses of coffee are so specialized, this commodity is likely more attractive to short-term investors looking to speculate on a change in price due to supply or demand factors. Coffee prices can see big swings over short periods of time, a result of both supply concentrations and the potential impact of extreme weather.
While the physical properties of coffee make investing in beans impractical, there are some other options for investors looking to gain exposure, including futures and options and exchange-traded products.
