Colombia, the second-largest supplier of Arabica coffee beans, said production will rise at least 8.8 percent this year as drier weather aids the crop. The nation will harvest 8.5 million bags or more of the beans, compared with 7.8 million bags last year, Colombia’s National Federation of Coffee Growers said today. Agriculture Minister Juan Camilo Restrepo forecast output of about 9 million bags yesterday on broadcaster Caracol Radio.
