WHAT IS THE C-MARKET? WHY DOES IT EXIST?
The C-Market, also known as the coffee commodity market, is where the global price of coffee is determined by traders at the New York Stock Exchange. The price of coffee on the C-Market shifts based on supply and demand, but also based on trader predictions about future supply and demand.
A lot of the activity on the C-Market revolves around futures contracts and these futures contracts are based on macro trends like Brazilian or Vietnamese outlook for coffee for the following year. It is not based on cost of production for an individual farmer, so in many ways, it is disconnected from the real cost of producing coffee, especially for a small farmer.
