Africa’s Coffee Production May Drop 18% in 2011-12, ICO Says

Coffee production in Africa may drop 18 percent in the 2011-12 crop year due to a smaller crop in Ethiopia, according to the International Coffee Organization.

Output in the country, Africa’s biggest coffee grower, will drop to 14.4 million bags next season from 17.5 million bags in the 2010-11 crop year, the London-based organization estimates.
