Coffee Futures Market News and Commentary

Arabica Coffee Prices Close Higher on the Threat of Heavy Rain and Wind in Brazil

September arabica coffee (KCU19) on Wednesday closed up by +1.35 (+1.40%), and Sep ICE robusta coffee (RMU19) settled unchanged. Sep arabica coffee rebounded from a 3-week low Wednesday and closed higher after Somar Meteorologia forecasted heavy rain and wind next week for Minas Gerais, Brazil's biggest arabica growing region, that may slow the coffee harvest and bean drying and may cause beans to fall from trees. Somar Meteorologia had earlier forecasted little rain and warmer temperatures in Brazil's coffee-growing areas through the rest of June. Sep arabica coffee early Wednesday fell to a 3-week low and Sep robusta fell to a 4-week low on ample coffee supply in Brazil after data from Conab showed Brazil coffee inventories held by companies and growers jumped +31.6% to 12.9 mln bags as of March 31, the most in three years. In another potentially bearish factor, last Friday's data showed that money managers cut their net short positions in robusta coffee by -1,584 to a 4-month low of 24,262 contracts in the week ended June 11, which reduces the chances for a short squeeze. On the positive side was the USDA's bi-annual report last Friday where the USDA projects global 2019/20 coffee production will fall -3.1% to 169.13 mln bags as Brazil's Arabica trees enter the off-year of the biennial production cycle. The USDA also projects that global 2019/20 coffee consumption will climb +2.5% to a record 167.92 mln bags, which will reduce global 2019/20 coffee ending stocks by -7.7% y/y to 33.545 mln bags. Current coffee supplies have tightened after ICE-monitored coffee inventories dropped to an 8-1/2 month low of 2.381 mln bags Tuesday, down from March's 4-3/4 year high of 2.503 mln bags.
