Colombia, the world’s leading producer of mild washed Arabica coffee, produced 1.05 million 60-kg bags in June, a 9% decrease compared to the 1.16 million bags produced in June 2016.

This cutback was still the result of delayed flowerings normally occurring between June and October 2016, but was less severe than the drop in April and May, confirming a trend to recovery of production levels, as estimated by the FNC.

Year-to-date production (January-June) reached nearly 6.4 million 60-kg bags, a 3% decrease compared to the more than 6.5 million bags produced during the same previous period.

In the last 12 months (July 2016-June 2017), Colombia produced nearly 14.1 million 60-kg bags, a 3% decrease compared to the nearly 14.5 million bags produced between July 2015 and June 2016.

So far this coffee year (October 2016-June 2017), Colombian coffee production registered 10.74 million 60-kg bags, almost a 1% increase compared to the 10.68 million bags produced during the same previous period.
