      Coffee prices double

      Prices have doubled for some brands of coffee in the last year because of severe drought in Brazil.

      About a third of the world's coffee comes from Brazil.

      Especially hard hit were Arabica beans, which are used in most coffee brands.

      If you buy your coffee from big chains, like Starbucks, you might not have noticed a price increase.  They buy beans at locked in prices.
