The coffee market provides a good illustration of the interaction of demand and supply. The International Coffee Organization offers monthly reports on the coffee market (as pdfs) and a detailed table of coffee prices over 1998-2011. The ICO's exporting members account for over 97% of world coffee production and its importing members for 68% of world coffee consumption.
