Towards the end of the year, many coffee importers and coffee producing countries released their 2023 annual reports. It is pointed out in several reports that the war between Russia and Ukraine and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict this year have reduced consumption in some areas, and inflation has also led to a reduction in consumption. This year's relatively high interest rates have increased the cost of trade, and the EU's deforestation regulations (EUDR) will increase the cost of 2024 coffee trade.

In terms of weather, El Ni ñ o was originally expected to end in the first quarter, but it will be extended, and it is not expected to end until the second quarter of 2024, which has a significant impact on many coffee producing countries that are in the equator and bloom in April-May. And it has had a lot of impact on the Robusta producing areas of coffee-producing countries, especially in Brazil, leading to a rise in the price of robusta coffee beans.

Recently, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released the report "Coffee: global Market and Trade". According to the report, global coffee production is expected to be 171.4 million bags by the end of 2023 / 24, an increase of 6.9 million bags over the previous year. Global production is mainly in Brazil, Colombia and Ethiopia, offsetting Indonesia's production cuts. Global coffee bean exports are expected to be 119.9 million bags, also an increase of 8.4 million bags over the previous year. With global coffee consumption expected to reach a record 169.5 million bags, ending inventory remains at a 12-year low of 26.5 million bags.

Brazil, which was affected by drought and other bad weather earlier, is now returning to its previous level. A total of 66.3 million bags of coffee are expected to be produced in 2023 to 24, an increase of 3.7 million bags over the previous year. Of this total, Arabica coffee production increased by 5.1 million to 44.9 million bags, while Robusta coffee production will be reduced by 1.4 million to 21.4 million bags. Coffee bean exports are expected to increase by 7.3 million bags to 39.5 million bags.

Colombian production is recovering, so the premium has fallen. Coffee production is expected to increase by 800000 bags to 11.5 million bags in 2023 to 24. However, due to the sharp rise in fertilizer prices, Colombian coffee production is 15% lower than its production potential. Exports are expected to increase by 1.2 million bags to 10.8 million bags.

Vietnam's coffee production in 2024 is a mystery, depending on two important time points: January and April. Production is expected to increase by 300000 bags to 27.5 million bags in 2023 to 24, and 95 per cent is still Robusta. Due to the depletion of reduced production stocks in the previous year, some of them will be used to cover inventories this year, and exports are expected to fall by 2.4 million to 23 million bags.

The El Ni ñ o phenomenon in Indonesia will damage Indonesia's coffee production in 2023 and 2004. Production is expected to decrease by 2.2 million bags to 9.7 million bags in 2023 to 24. Of this total, Robusta production decreased by 2.1 million to 8.4 million bags, and Arabica coffee production decreased by 100000 to 1.3 million bags. Exports also decreased by 2.7 million bags to 5 million bags.
