Porto Alegre, March 16, 2022 - Brazilian coffee production in 2022/23, which will begin harvesting in the coming months, should reach 61, 10 million bags. The estimate is based on a survey by SAFRAS & Mercado.
Although it represents an 8% recovery compared to 2021/22, it still corresponds to a 12% drop compared to the record harvested in 2020.
Arabica production, more vulnerable to the climate setback, is expected to grow 11% compared to last year and reach 38.80 million bags. In comparison with what was harvested in 2020, it represents a drop of 23%. In volume, it corresponds to a loss of productive potential of 11.40 million bags.
According to SAFRAS & Mercado consultant, Gil Barabach, this is the size of the productive damage caused by drought and frost in Brazil. "Practically all Arabica-producing regions have lost their productive load potential, with a negative emphasis on the South and Cerrado de Minas and the Mogiana region in São Paulo", he comments.]
Conilon production, he indicates, continues to rise in Brazil ,which mitigates the potential losses of arabica. The conilon crop benefits from favorable weather and high prices. And it should reach 22.30 million bags this year, up 3% from last season. "It is good to note that conilon has sustained increases in production since 2017/18, when due to the drought in Espírito Santo it harvested only 12.20 million bags.
The park 's rejuvenation , especially in Espírito Santo, guarantees the good productive performance of recent years", says Barabach.
