No Change in Hawaii Coffee Crop



WASHINGTON - Dec 10/13 - SNS -- Hawaii coffee production is estimated at 7.00 million pounds (parchment basis) for the 2013-2014 season, unchanged from the previous season, according to the USDA's latest crop production estimates.

Damage from the Coffee Berry Borer coupled with limited rainfall levels during the season negatively impacted yields.
