African Coffee Output May Almost Double in Five Years


African coffee output could almost double in the next five years as some countries boost plantings and make farming more productive, according to the African Fine Coffees Association.


Production could rise by between 2 million and 3 million bags in each of the next five years, partly as farming improves in nations previously affected by conflicts, Ishak Lukenge, the association chairman, said in an interview in Kampala, Uganda. African output is expected to total about 16 million bags this season, U.S. government data show. A bag weighs 60 kilograms (132 pounds).
