  •  One thing that happened here last year (5+ / 0-)

    is that coffee skyrocketed in price, and a little over a euro for a packet.  I asked the grocer why, as there is hardly if any inflation then or now.

    His answer was that Germany began to support workers rights and unions of coffee growers.  Now I don't mind paying the extra if it protects in some way the  agro workers
