Colombia’s National Federation of Coffee Growers reported that the monthly yield was 10.3 million bags, the first time the industry has exceeded this level since 2009.
Global prices remain weak, however, with a two sack unit priced at $193.
Colombia’s coffee industry is currently receiving $443 million in government aid to help the industry cope with the fall-out from a disease that ravaged Colombia’s coffee crop.
