Coffee Futures Market News and Commentary

Coffee Prices Pressured by Weakness in the Brazilian Real

May arabica coffee (KCK24) on Friday closed down -2.85 (-1.56%), and Mar ICE robusta coffee (RMH24) closed down -127 (-4.00%).

Coffee prices on Friday retreated, with robusta falling sharply to a 7-week low.  Weakness in the Brazilian real weighed on coffee prices as the real (^USDBRL) Friday fell to a 2-week low against the dollar.  The weaker real encourages export selling from Brazil's coffee producers.  

Robusta coffee on Friday also had some negative carryover from Wednesday when Vietnam's General Statistics Office reported that Vietnam's Jan coffee exports rose +14.8% m/m and +67.4% y/y to 238,266 MT.  Vietnam is the world's largest producer of robusta coffee beans.

An easing of dry conditions in Brazil is bearish for coffee prices.   On Monday, Somar Meteorologia reported that Brazil's Minas Gerais region received 57 mm of rainfall in the past week, or 101% of the historical average.  Minas Gerais accounts for about 30% of Brazil's arabica crop.
