Brazil’s coffee harvest in 2022/23 reaches 75% of the area, report shows

Brazilian farmers had harvested about 75% of the 2022/23 coffee crop as of July 26, slightly behind the pace at the same time last season of 77% and also down behind the five-year average of 80%, consultancy Safras & Mercado said on Thursday.

Gil Barabach, a coffee analyst at Safras, said dry weather seen over coffee-growing areas had helped speed up the harvest over the past week, reducing some of the delays seen this year in the coffee harvest.

However, he noted that rains are expected in the coming days in the states of Paraná, São Paulo and Minas Gerais, which could interrupt part of the harvest. A drop in temperatures is also expected, although at the moment there is no risk of frost.

Safras projects Brazil’s 2022 coffee crop at 61.1 million bags, well above the government estimate of 53.4 million bags.
