Brazil coffee zones chalk up another drier month  BRASILIA: Coffee-growing regions in top producer Brazil notched another month of drier-than-average weather in December, causing minor losses of coffee fruit in some regions, private forecaster Somar said on Friday.   Somar agrometeorologist Marco Antonio dos Santos said heat and drier weather had taken a toll on trees and would cut the potential output of the crop, though prospects still look bright according to recent agronomist and exporter comments.   Rains are expected to improve significantly in the next ...
