Brazil to harvest biggest off-year coffee crop ever

BRAZIL will harvest its largest ever off-year coffee crop in the 2013/14 season, the government said on Wednesday in its first estimate for the season, forecasting output that could be almost as big as the record 2012 on-year harvest.

The world’s largest coffee producer will see output grow to 47m to 50.2m 60kg bags in the 2013/14 harvest, the government crop supply agency Conab said, only slightly less than the 50.8m bags produced in 2012 if output reaches the upper limit.
