Colombian Coffee Growing Regions May Have Above-Average Rainfall
Colombia said coffee growing regions in the Andes mountains may have above-average rainfall this month because of the La Nina weather phenomenon.
Heavier rainfall may return in mid March and increase to “significant volumes” in April in the nation’s Andes mountains range, according to a forecast distributed today by the state- run Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies.
Higher than average rainfall last year curtailed coffee production in Colombia, the second-largest producer of arabica beans after Brazil.
