Coffee traders are offering large discounts on robusta beans from Vietnam, the world’s top producer of the variety, to entice more demand from roasters, according to people familiar with the matter.
Expensive freight costs, container shortages and Covid-19 restrictions have slowed exports from the country, helping to send robusta futures to a decade high recently. That, along with tightening coffee supplies in Brazil, has seen roasters in nations including Italy and Germany diversify to other growers.
