Coffee S/D Outlook: Sharper production cycles meet demand recovery
Mr. Carlos Mera, Senior Commodity Analyst, Rabobank
July 14, 10am CST / 11am EST / 9am Costa Rica
The downcycle in Brazil is not only expected to be lower than the last downcycle, but it might also herald a new era of more marked cyclicality in the top coffee producer. At the same time, the downcycle coincides with a period when the developed economies are emerging out of the Covid-19 nightmare, and many could return to traditional consumption patterns and channels. The new ways of drinking coffee developed during the pandemic will still be there (more home machines, drive-throughs, online ordering, abonnements, etc) and demand could climb more than expected.
