With the market so high, the theft of coffee is becoming a big 
problem in origin countries. We were just visiting Finca Siberia, and 
Carmen emailed me that all the coffee fruit from the Pacamara trees 
on the farm was stolen in the night! Thieves will actually come in an 
pick the coffee cherry if a farm isn't guarded. In this case they 
handcuffed the administrator of the farm and some of the employees, 
and picked the trees. It's crazy what happens when the market surges 
and the local price for coffee goes through the roof.
