Brazil coffee production slump continues

|By:, SA News Editor

Brazil coffee production could end up down 18% Y/Y when the harvest ends next month. A severe drought in the nation has destroyed a large swath of crops.

The shortfall in the nation is included in a forecast from Citigroup that calls for a global coffee deficit which could last until 2016 and pressure prices.
