WEATHER

The month of February was rainy in the coffee growing regions of Minas Gerais. The data show that it rained 2.9 times more than the average for Zona da Mata and 2.3 times more than the average in Cerrado.

All this rainfall occurred between February 1st and 20th, and was caused by the presence of 3 cold fronts. As the cold fronts were stationary between Minas and São Paulo, the volume of rainfall observed in the Garça region was below average.

Rain forecast for next week:

  • Sul de Minas region: between 40 and 60 mm;
  • Zona da Mata region: between 10 and 15 mm;
  • Cerrado region: between 10 and 15 mm;
  • Garça region: between 50 and 60 mm;
  • Alta Mogiana region: between 10 and 15 mm.

DOMESTIC MARKET and FOB

Short week due to the Carnival holiday and aggravated by the abrupt drop in the ne NY “ICE” market, which discouraged sellers in the domestic market and made buyers drastically reformulate their purchase bases. There were few demands and little business in the FOB.


LOGISTICS

Due to the Carnival holiday recess, we had a shorter week. Only a few booking confirmations have been received, some with dates in April only.

For Russia or Ukraine, new bookings have been suspended without any informed forecast. Ongoing shipments, initially destined for Ukraine, will be directed to other ports, as indicated by the receiver, or to nearby ports, but to neighboring countries, at the shipping company’s discretion. Hamburg Sud has communicated that the release of equipment for bookings bound for Russia is temporarily suspended.
