Colombia Coffee Harvest the Largest in 23 Years

BOGOTA – Colombia’s 2015 coffee harvest totaled 14.2 million bags of 60 kilos (132 lbs.), the largest in 23 years, the National Federation of Coffee Growers said Wednesday.

The figure represents an increase of 83 percent over the 2012 harvest, which came in at 7.7 million bags.

“This is very good news for the country’s producers,” federation managing director Roberto Velez Vallejo said.

The dramatic improvement since 2012 is the fruit “of joint efforts by the coffee growers and the government, who succeeded in renewing domestic coffee-growing and making Colombia an important player in the international market again,” he said.

Colombia exported 12.7 million bags of coffee last year, an advance of 16 percent over 2014.

The final harvest numbers were slightly better than forecast by the Agriculture Ministry.
