Coffee season away

The new coffee season is underway and local supplies of the good stuff are coming through now.  Due to late rains, the production this year is down around 30% over 2006.

When you consider that production was down last year by a similar 30% due to the security troubles, if the rains do the right thing this year by falling in October/November , then 2008 could be a bonanza year.

Quality is said to be up and despite the doom and gloom presented in a recent ABC radio piece, ongoing staged pruning and other measures are expected to lead to increasing quantity and quality of future crops.

Meanwhile, if you are here, just enjoy.
