The prices of coffee have increased dramatically, and some types have reached 50 thousand pounds per kilo.
Al-Watan newspaper said that the prices of coffee increased this month by about 2,000 to 5,000 liras, according to the type of imported material. Cardamom free is between 17 and 20 thousand.
According to market indicators, some large quantity dealers have recently refrained from supplying small quantity sellers with coffee under the pretext of studying the increase in its prices.
Traders said that the price of a ton of coffee in the producing countries increased from $2000 to $4,000, or 100 percent, compared to last season, which will affect the coming months.
Syria is completely dependent on importing coffee beans due to the difficulty of cultivating them in the country, as it is a sensitive tropical plant that needs certain temperatures.
Statistics show that Syria imports coffee from several countries, but most of its dependence is focused on Brazil and India, with more than 90 percent of these two countries.
