Post now estimates that Colombian coffee production will increase to 14.0 million bags GBE in MY
2015/16 (October through September), slightly up from the previous forecast of 13.6 million bags
GBE. Revised production forecast for MY 2016/17 is up from 13.3 to 14.0 million bags GBE as drought
conditions were favorable for the flowering period and projected rainfall is expected to be normal for
the next months. The National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia (FEDECAFE) estimates that
average coffee productivity has increased to 15 bags per hectare from 10 bags per hectare as a result of
the replanting program which reduced the average age of coffee trees from 15 to 7 years. The rust
resistant variety replanting program and minimal impacts of El Niño weather phenomena have helped to
maintain strong productivity during MY 2015/16, up 5.1% from the previous year.

colombia-brazilUS officials upped expectations for coffee exports from Colombia, the third biggest producing country, but cut their estimate for top-ranked Brazil, as they cut their estimate for robusta bean output to an 11-year low. US Department of Agriculture foreign staff lifted by 450,000 bags to a 24-year high of 12.84m bags their estimate for Colombia’s exports in 2016-17. The upgrade reflected “the recovery in coffee production” in the South American country, as trees replanted after a rust epidemic mature, with the output estimate for the season upped by 700,000 bags to 14.0m bags.

robusta8Robusta coffee futures continue their trek ever higher, with no end in sight for the recent strength. Markets were unfazed by the news that the State Statistical Department in Vietnam has forecast coffee for the month of October up 48% year on year, at 2.17m bags. “This figure is well ahead of the earlier forecasts on the part of the country’s coffee trade and exporters, who had been forecasting exports at between 1.17m and 1.67m bags,” said coffee trading house I&M Smith. But the trader noted that these exports “would have liquidated a good percentage of the carryover stocks from the previous crop”.

png-kimelPapua New Guinea occupies the Eastern half of the island it shares with the Indonesian province of Irian or simply Papua. The PNG highlands are planted with a variety of coffee types, with farms in both the large plantation model and many small-holder coffee gardens. PNG coffees can be a bit confusing: They are different from other Indonesian, Southeast Asian or Pacific Island types. All PNG coffees are wet-processed, which explains why they have a brighter, more acidic profile, and why some basic aspects of the cup are vaguely similar to Central America coffees. PNG have a huge range of cup flavours from rustic, bulked Organic lots to Plantation coffees. The plantations are larger farms that have their own coffee-processing wet mills, so they are able to control all the variables of production better than the small-farm coffee gardens. Kimel plantation was first established in 1974 by an Australian, Bobby Gibbs; it is now owned by traditional landowners, the Opais of the Wahgi valley. Both the A and AA have a vibrant brightness while retaining some unique PNG origin characteristics.
