A drop in coffee bean prices could assist profit margins in the industry. Coffee prices on the Nairobi Coffee Exchange (NCE) retreated last month in response to a correction in the international market following record prices of the commodity last year. "Prices last year were abnormal and we expected a correction of the prices both globally and locally," David Muriithi, communications manager at NCE, argues.

Coffee prices on the international market dropped to below $2 per kilogram starting October last year for the first time in ten months, signalling the end of abnormal prices, Business Daily reports.
