Colombia Sees 2012 Coffee Crop as Low as 7.5 Million Bags

Colombia, the second-largest producer of Arabica coffee beans, may produce a smaller crop than last year because of heavy rainfall.

The harvest may be 7.5 million to 7.8 million bags of 60 kilograms (132 pounds) bags of beans this calendar year, said Andres Valencia, marketing chief at Colombia’s National Federation of Coffee Growers. In 2011, the harvest fell 12 percent to 7.81 million bags, the lowest level since 1976.
