Brazil coffee inventories bolstered by a record harvest last year may be sufficient to keep shipments flowing even as this year’s harvest may decline, Nicolas Rueda, president of Brazil exporters group CeCafe says in conference call with journalists.
Rueda said CeCafe is cautious about predicting Brazil coffee exports as production entered the lower half of a biennial cycle and lower precipitation may reduce production potential

Brazil's Cecafe Says Too Soon to Know If Drought Will Hit Coffee Exports -- Market Talk
(Dow Jones) -- 16:13 ET - Brazilian coffee exporters group Cecafe said it's too soon to say if the drought that has hit coffee production this year, and is expected to have a negative impact on the 2022 crop, will result in shortages for exports. Brazilian crop agency Conab has forecast a decline of as much as 39% in coffee production in 2021, and some growers have said they're worried about a lack of coffee for export before the start of the 2022 harvest. Eduardo Heron Santos, Cecafe's technical director, said the 2021 crop is underway and that they still don't know how big an impact the drought will have on output this year or exports next year.
Brazil Coffee Exports Fell 2.1% in June to 3.01M Bags, Cecafe Says
By Jeffrey T. Lewis
(Dow Jones) -- SÃO PAULO--Brazilian coffee exports fell in June as sales abroad of the robusta variety and of ground, roasted and soluble coffees dropped because of logistics problems, according to exporters group Cecafe.
The South American country exported 3.01 million 132-pound bags of coffee last month, a decline of 2.1% from the same month a year earlier, Cecafe said Monday. Sales abroad of the arabica variety of coffee rose 12.5% to 2.34 million bags, while exports of robusta beans plummeted 39.4% to 387,239 bags.
Exports of ground, roasted and soluble coffee fell 20.3% to 282,895 bags, Cecafe said.
Exporters have had problems finding enough containers to export their coffee, which has had an impact on total sales abroad, according to Cecafe president Nicolas Rueda. Bottlenecks at the port of Vitoria, in the robusta-producing state of Espirito Santo, have especially disrupted exports of that variety of coffee, he said.
