    • It's National Coffee Day in the U.S., but it's weather in Brazil and Vietnam that is the focus of the coffee industry.
    • Drought conditions and crop disease concerns have pushed prices higher and created some short-term supply constraints.
    • Indexmundi.com shows robusta coffee prices are up 18% YTD and mild arabicas prices are 16% higher.
    • Higher commodity prices can hit packaged coffee sellers harder than chains selling fresh coffee, although hedging activity also plays a larger factor in how individual companies shake out.
    • On a consumer level, don't expect any relief at Starbucks on their base coffee prices ($1.85 tall, $2.10 grande, $2.45 venti) anytime soon.

    • Data from NPD Group indicates that 11% of millennials use craft coffee brewing to satisfy their daily coffee cravings.
    • It's a trend to watch with younger consumers representing 44% of at-home craft coffee brewers of which a third live in urban areas.
    • It's not clear if the increase in at-home craft coffee consumption is peeling away meaningful packaged coffee sales or store traffic to chains, but there could be a reputational risk to national brands on quality in the future.

    • The sluggish trend continues in the restaurant sector with same-store sales down 0.6% in August, according to the latest read from Black Box Intelligence.
    • Same-store traffic was 2.7% lower Y/Y during the month to improve on the 3.9% drop recorded in July. Average guest check across the industry was up 2.3% to help offset for some of the loss of customers.
    • Another weak month in the Southwest (sales -5%, traffic -7%) doesn't bode well for chains with a high concentration of stores in Texas.
    • Though the broad read from analysts is that consumer spending is still tight in the U.S., there are also some concerns that restaurant chains are having trouble building brand loyalty with millennials giving their business to independent eateries.
