Brazil: Coffee Annual

Commodities

ATO/Sao Paulo forecasts Brazil’s coffee production for Marketing Year (MY) 2017/18 (July-June) at 52.1 million 60-kg bags, a decrease of four million bags compared to MY 2016/17, due to the off-year of the biennial production cycle of trees in the majority of Arabica growing regions. Robusta/conilon trees are likely to partially recover from the previous year’s smaller crop. Coffee exports for MY 2017/18 are projected stable at 33.03 million bags, compared to the revised estimate for MY 2016/17, due to supply constraints.
