Colombia: Coffee Annual

Commodities

In marketing year (MY) 2017/18, Colombian coffee production is estimated to decrease to 14.2 million bags (1 bag = 60 kilograms unless otherwise noted) green bean equivalent (GBE) as the flowering period in the main producing regions was affected by excessive rains and considerable cloudiness. If weather conditions are favorable and renovated plants keep reaching their productive peak, production is forecast to recover to 14.5 million bags GBE in MY 2018/19. Paralleling lower production, exports are expected to fall by three percent to 13.3 million bags GBE in MY 2017/18, increasing to 13.5 million bags GBE in MY 2018/19.
