Angola: Drought prevents an increase in coffee production

June 5, 2013. Angola was once a major producer of coffee, but the dry weather conditions deprived the country of the prospects for abundant crops.

Production of Angolan coffee this year will be a little different from last year. This season, as in the past, the Angolan coffee plantations suffer from prolonged lack of rainfall.

In addition, the coffee sector is suffering from the effects of a long civil war that lasted 27 years and ended in 2002. Farmers struggle to survive and work in the current economic conditions, according to news agency "Kazakh-Grain."

The largest coffee crop was harvested in Angola in 1967 and amounted to 235,200 tons. Angola still ranks third in the list of the world's coffee producers.
