Coffee Market Report December 2015 - Prices maintain down trend, production estimates show recovery

The coffee market fell again in December 2015, reaching its second lowest monthly average of the year. This decrease was entirely attributable to the drop in Robusta prices over the course of the month. Our first estimate of coffee production in crop year 2015/16 comes to 143.4 million bags, a slight 1.4% recovery compared to 2014/15, which has been revised lower to 141.4 million. Lower production in Brazil as estimated by Conab has been compensated by increases provisionally estimated in Vietnam, Colombia and Indonesia, among others.

Coffee Market Report November 2015 - Prices settle lower as focus turns to upcoming year

November saw mounting speculation over the size of the next 2016/17 Brazilian crop and its impact on the global supply/demand balance. In general, prospects for Brazil seem positive, although there is some concern over the conilon crop. Prices showed little clear trend, but ended the month down by nearly 3%, as commodities more broadly were subject to currency fluctuations, with coffee most prominently affected by the Brazilian real. In terms of ICO figures, production for crop year 2014/15 is pegged at 143.3 million bags, while consumption in calendar year 2014 has been revised upwards to 149.8 million bags, due to higher than expected demand in the European Union.
