    The impact of frost and drought on Brazilian coffee in 2021

    Brazil has faced severe drought since September 2020. This led to higher percentages of malformed beans and screen sizes below 16. Selection and dry-milling will keep defects from reaching roasters but have reduced farms’ productivity.

    Harvest news - June 2021

    The market is in a moment of transition from a wave of panic and uncertainty to more optimism and stability. The current unpredictability was caused mainly by the reduced Brazilian crop (which has just started), the protests in Colombia and the global container shortage. These factors led to a surge in speculation, further increased due to the depreciation of the American dollar and the subsequent increase in the purchasing of coffee futures by funds and investors. Get up to speed, learn more on what's happening in the producing countries with our new Harvest News summary - a collection of quick origin facts bringing you the hottest information from the fields.

    Harvest report Mexico - Oaxaca 2020

    Coffee production in Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, comes mainly from smallholder farms. The plots of local growers are on average much smaller than the ones located at the neighbouring states of Veracruz and Chiapas. The distances between farms also make it hard for producers to organize themselves.
