Kenya: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KE2021-0010

FAS Nairobi forecasts Kenya’s coffee production will increase from 700 to 750 thousand bags in marketing year (MY) 2021/22 due to anticipated good weather and improved farm practices in response to higher prices. Area harvested is down from 112 to 105 thousand hectares in MY 2020/21 due to the encroachment of real estate development in peri-urban plantations. Local consumption will remain depressed in MY 2020/21 due to the impact of COVID-19 on the restaurant and hospitality sectors, but will recover slightly from 36 to 43 thousand bags in MY 2021/22 as Kenya’s tourism sector improves. Trade estimates are revised based on data from Trade Data Monitor.
