Coffee production in Colombia in 2015 should be between 12.5 million and 13 million bags of 60 kilos, an increase over the previous year, with favourable weather, the incorporation of new coffee plantations to the industrial park and increased productivity said the manager of the National Coffee Growers Federation on Thursday.
Colombia, the world's largest producer of washed Arabica coffee, saw a crop of 12.1 million bags in 2014, an annual increase of 11.5%, which led to production to its historical levels after the failure to meet targets crops for four years, due to heavy rains.
"The harvest will be better than last year. Projections indicate that Colombia can be between 12.5 and 13 million bags this year," said in an interview with Reuters Luis Genaro Muñoz, the manager of the National Coffee Growers Federation.
He said that the Colombian coffee industry is experiencing a good time due to international market prices, the devaluation of the local currency against the dollar and increasing global consumption.
