Coffee shortage maybe headed to Hollywood.
Anyone that works in the film industry knows that coffee is your best friend. Working on set, producers expect every actor, model, and crew member to put in those grueling 18 hour days until the production is finished. But, the average human being can only stay away for so long. So, what is a man to do? Drink coffee.
Well, I have bad news for you, let me rephrase that, I have terrible news for you, if you're in the filmmaking business. Reports suggest that there is an upcoming coffee shortage.
The current rise in coffee consumption will require an extra 40 million to 50 million bags of coffee to be made, according to Bloomberg. Climate change is another reason for the decrease in global production. And Starbucks lovers, you will be worrying the most. The type of coffee bean that is the biggest threat is Arabica, which is the coffee type of choice for coffee chain franchises. You can blame global warming for that.
The topic will certainly be discussed at the upcoming Global Coffee Forum, which is currently happening in Milan. Let's hope they can figure this out, Hollywood depends on it.
