In 2014 the market broke hard the week of Oct 13 from highs around $2.20 on the arrival of rain. The big difference were the months leading up to this event. Precipitation was almost 50 mm in July a month where you see no rains, August 10-15 mm, September 30mm. We had some very hot days but not the number we have seen this year. Maps still point to another week of the same and the follow up week has dried up somewhat from earlier forecasts. In my opinion some permanent damage to the production has occurred and we are definitely in a unique year for coffee production with a long road ahead. His comments to take or leave. Any Brazilian producers who can add more color, I’m sure the forum would appreciate!
‘’ Hi M, Coffee farmers have been struggling with a long drought associated with high temperatures. I received reports of areas with 140 days with no rain. Most of the areas will produce 30% to 40% of the current season in 2021”"
