    I think that the price of coffee varies with the quantity of supply

    If the demand has shifted to the right( an increase), both price and quantity will go up. The supply will move along the curve to the right

    According to economist-religious dogma, it should increase. In reality - like don said - this increase takes time...or maybe a harvest fails due to droughts or an epidemic, or maybe there is no additional land available...

    Increase. Marketing, says strike while it’s hot. What’s better hot than coffee.

    Out of context (out of the blue) this is hard to answer. When I studied Economics, the answer would have been that the supply increases. This is because at a higher price more producers are able to produce at an acceptable profit.

      Your answer is correct. But, you can't just decide that because coffee is more profitable that you will produce more. You have to prepare land, plant coffee bushes, wait for them to mature, then harvest the additional beans, and process them in order to increase production. Takes time.
