Brazil was expected to produce one of the largest crops of Arabica beans on record, and prices have dropped as much as 21 percent as a result. But recent dry weather has produced doubts about the Brazilian harvest. Government estimates of just over 50 million 60-kilogram bags fell under private estimates of 60 million bags. With prices near 17-month lows there are also growing concerns that farmers in Brazil will hold their supplies off the market in an attempt to force prices higher. Farmers in Vietnam, the second largest producer, used the same tactic with successful results for their supplies of robusta beans. Prices for robusta beans in London have gained 14 percent this year.
