Indian Coffee Board cuts crop forecast

The Coffee Board of India (CBI) has cut its estimate for the 2016/17 crop by 1 per cent due to poor monsoonal rains. According to the CBI, India is expected to produce a total of 316,700 tonnes of coffee this year, down 9 per cent on last year’s output. The drop comes mainly from the nation’s Arabica crop, which has been put at 96,200 tonnes, a fall of 3.8 per cent from the earlier estimate. The Robusta crop has shown a marginal increase of 500 tonnes at 220,500 tonnes.
