The coffee harvest in Brazil continues to advance quickly, taking advantage of the dry climate. According to SAFRAS’ weekly monitoring, through June 25, 50% of the 24/25 crop have already been reaped, an increase of 6% from the previous week. Last week, the emphasis was on the good progress of arabica. In the same period last year, the total coffee harvest in Brazil was 45% complete, and the five-year average for the same period is 47%.

The conillon harvest continues fast but advancing at a more measured pace, favored by the climate and stage of crop maturation, and rises to 68% of the productive potential. Work exceeds the same period last year (62%) and the five-year average (65%). The harvest result continues to be a concern, maintaining the idea of ​​a downward correction in the crop number. This picture maintains the idea of ​​a cut of 8% to 14% from the preliminary forecast.

The arabica harvest is accelerating again and widening the gap from previous periods. 42% of the production potential have already been reaped, surpassing the same time last year (35%) and the 5-year average of 37%. The issue of smaller coffee beans continues to be of great concern, which fuels noises of a possible negative correction in arabica numbers. Producers maintain a slower procedure in coffee drying and processing, leaving beans to rest for longer, which favors cup quality but also explains the little coffee available in the trading centers.
