It’s that time again, The Brazilian New Crop harvest starts in May!

| April 29, 2013

DSCN0130The big question this year is where to store the incoming 13/14 new crop which starts to be harvested this May and finishes by September/13?

The numbers suggest a storage and logistic nightmare as Brazilian storage capacity, truck availability and road infra-structure are maxed out.

Coffee producers avoid storing coffee in the farms due to security and
capacity reasons.

DSCN0114Now producers will have to become very creative finding space in their local cooperative and nearby private warehouse capacity, both alternatives are already quite full with coffee and other crops.
