Colombia May coffee output up 12pc on year, exports slip BOGOTA: Colombia produced 1.05 million 60-kg bags of arabica coffee in May, up 12 percent from the same month last year, the national coffee growers' federation said on Wednesday, while exports slipped 3 percent to 831,000 bags.Colombia's mild arabica coffee output is rebounding after a run of poor harvests caused by roya, or leaf rust fungus, and poor weather.
