    It's not all about demand. The tariff reduction will cause the demand to shift to the right. And the health concern data will also cause the same consequences. But the tariff reduction will also cause the domestic supply to shift to the left. This can cause the total supply to shift in the same direction. In sum, the price of coffee will increase, but the demand quantity cannot be determined.
