Colombia’s coffee production up 9% in April

Colombia produced 810,000 60-kg bags of washed Arabica coffee in April, up 9% from the 744,000 bags produced in the same month last year, the national coffee growers’ federation said. Colombian coffee exports soared 61% last month to 1.03 million bags, up from about 642,000 bags in April 2020. The surge in exports was driven by better logistics, the federation said, as last year this period was marked by lockdowns imposed to contain the coronavirus.
