WORLD COFFEE PROSPECTS 
 
    Favorable conditions for developing coffee in Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais 
Brazil. 
    Generally favorable conditions for the remaining harvest in Mexico and 
Central America. Early bloom for new crop gets underway in March. 
    The main crop flowers in Colombia during March. The midcrop is developing. 
    A drier weather pattern in the coffee growing areas of central Vietnam 
during late January and much of February will improve conditions for the 
harvest and transport of the crop. 
    Episodes of scattered rains continue through coffee areas of southern 
Indonesia. This maintains favorable conditions for development of coffee but 
may delay seasonal fieldwork. 
    Drier, warmer weather in West Africa coffee areas during November and 
December favored the maturing crop and harvesting. The region has had some hot 
dry weather during January and in February. However, more recently we have also 
had some shower activity move through...favoring coffee trees and easing the 
risk of damage due to seasonal Harmattan winds. 
    The east Africa coffee growing region seen and increase in shower activity 
recently. This should help ease stress on the trees at this time.
