Coffee Import Weekly leads indicators of US market supply-demand

MIAMI, FLA., March 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datamyne, a top provider of web-based international business intelligence, is unveiling its new Coffee Import Weekly at this year's National Coffee Association Annual Convention in San Diego, March 17-19.

The Coffee Import Weekly is based on Datamyne import data that captures each shipment's importer, supplier, origin and destination, all cleansed, standardized and enhanced with detailed product descriptions, including varieties and certification types.

Available online via subscription, the coffee import data is refreshed every 7 days by data sourced directly from bills of lading 24 hours after release by US Customs. Based on an analysis of multi-year historical data, Coffee Import Weekly data consistently correlates (70%) with the subsequent month's Current Warehouse Coffee Stocks Report from the Green Coffee Association (GCA).

"The Coffee Import Weekly has a strong correlation to GCA statistics, but is released one or two weeks sooner," says Brendan R. McCahill, Datamyne CEO, who adds that a beta version has been running to positive reviews for nearly a year in the run-up to full product release.

"The consensus is that the Coffee Import Weekly works as an earlier leading indicator of coffee supply-demand trends for coffee brokers, traders, buyers & retailers – in fact, anyone who watches and wants to stay ahead of the coffee market," says McCahill.

The Weekly is not a static report but a comprehensive database, updated every week. Subscribers accessing the database can set trend parameters and run comparisions by region, shipper – or Arabica vs. Robusta, Green vs. Roasted, Excelso, Supremo, and/or Microlot. The data covers soluble and coffee extract shipments.

The Coffee Import Weekly data identifies Fair Trade and organic coffee shipments, enabling subscribers to track the importers with sustainability certifications, such as RFA, UTZ, CAFE, 4C, AAA, and Bird Friendly.

Attendees at the NCA San Diego Convention can test drive the new coffee market data source at Datamyne Table #30 on the Exhibition floor.

The company is also offering free online demonstrations of Coffee Import Weekly. To request a demo, go to http://www.datamyne.com/request-an-online-demo/.
