    There was an unexpectedly interesting "travel log" on ABC last week . the BBC Simon Reeve in Vietnam
    It focused on the Vietnamese coffee industry and how it has largly supported the country since the '70's , but now is likely to collapse because they have not managed the plantations or restocked with new growth.
    ..it could be a major hole in world coffee supply.
