Re: USDA: Brazil Production Estimates ‘19’20
When USDA Brasil was published I was inside COOXUPÉ in Guaxupé talking to a director, so I asked the director if the São Paulo USA consulate consulted, visited, or looked for some crop data with COOXUPÉ, due to being the largest Cooperative coffee production in Brazil with approximately 18% of the Arabica production in Brazil. The answer I got is that they were never consulted and did not know USDA's criteria and methodology, since no producer of the cooperative was ever consulted or searched by the USDA.
