Brazil: Coffee Semi-annual

Commodities

Brazil’s coffee production for MY 2017/18 is revised down to 51.2 million 60-kg bags. This includes a 1.7 million-bag reduction in Arabica production as a result of worse-than-average dehusking yields, which is partially offset by higher Robusta production. Coffee exports for the current MY have dropped to 30.43 million bags, a decrease of 2.6 million bags from the previous estimate, reflecting dredging issues at the port of Santos and the lower number of containers available to ship the product.
