    3 Best Coffee Stocks for 2018

    Plus, recent weather patterns disrupted the coffee harvest in South America, which is expected to weigh on the Arabica harvest in Brazil, according to some experts.

A rise in prices is bad news if you can't function without your morning cup of joe, but it's good news if you're invested in coffee stocks.

    More people killed last year protecting land from big business than in any previous year, study finds

    Agricultural products such as coffee, palm oil, sugar cane and cattle were linked to the most number of deaths, accounting for 46 out of 207 killings in 2017, a study by Global Witness found. The campaign group recorded double the number of deaths last year among defenders of land against agribusiness than in 2016, highlighting the increasing damage wrought around the world by some of the products consumers rely on every day. Outside of large-scale agriculture, mining was the next most deadly sector, with at least 40 killings while logging and poaching each resulted in 23 people being killed by companies or governments backing those industries, according to the report.
