Brazil’s diminishing coffee harvest and higher fertilizer prices could spark a worldwide coffee shortage next year and in 2010, Bloomberg is reporting.

Coffee prices, naturally, are expected to rise. 


I’ll bet Starbucks is already inventing a new coffee size with an exclusive price, something between a grande and a venti that has double the caffeine — maybe a grenti.

A coffee shortage would mess with a lot of people’s morning rituals. I myself need a 20-ounce cup every morning because I am not a morning person. Give me my doggone coffee! Now!
