Typhoon Noru is expected to bring extensive downpours to Vietnam’s coffee belt in the Central Highlands, threatening to delay harvest in the world’s second-biggest coffee producer and top robusta supplier.

The storm may delay bean collection by about one or two weeks, said Tran Thi Lan Anh, deputy director of coffee exporter Vinh Hiep Co., based in Gia Lai province. She had expected the harvesting to start in mid-October.
