According to the Indonesian Business Daily, AEKI (Indonesian Coffee exporters Association) expects Indonesia's coffee production to increase in 2024.

Lrwan SP, a coffee farmer from Lampung province, at the southern tip of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, said that the long-term drying in 2023 had a positive impact on coffee fertilization and that the coffee harvest would increase significantly between May and October 2024 compared with the 2023 coffee harvest.

He explained that although there will be more harvests, considering the cost, there should still be a need to import coffee from Vietnam. Coffee imports will continue, especially in the coffee-based food industry, as Vietnamese coffee is cheaper than Indonesian coffee.

Canon believes that if you want to increase coffee production in Indonesia, the country needs to provide training to farmers, that is, training in the most favorable planting system. The old model used by the government and farmers so far has been proved to be ineffective in increasing coffee production. He hopes that the coffee harvest will increase next year, and the price will remain at about 35,000 to 40,000 rupiah per kilogram.

Moelyono Soesilo, chairman of the industry department of the Indonesian Coffee exporters Association (AEKI), expects coffee production to improve in the first half of 2024. According to him, Indonesia will give priority to meeting domestic coffee demand. At present, it still needs to import coffee. In case of yield decline or crop failure, imports can make up for the shortage of domestic coffee demand.

According to the import data of some food commodities released by the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), Indonesia's coffee imports reached 1.41 million kg in January 2023, an increase of 81.14% over January 2022 and 102.63% higher than December 2022.

In early 2023, the largest amount of coffee was imported from Vietnam, with 980000 1940 kilograms, soaring to 53.32 per cent year-on-year or 2.31 per cent month-on-month. This was followed by Brazil, where India and Belgium imported 110000 5200 kilograms of coffee, down 81.23 percent from the same period last year and 72.22 percent from the previous month.
