Many sales are made price to be fix, a certain quality is sold at a given differential, eg 3600 bags, mtgb fc, -17, ship sept / 2017
17 cents below KC Z 2017.
Then it can be sold 8 months to 1 month before shipment.
I believe that shipments from Brazil are small because many exporters are delaying shipments in agreement with the buyers, being convenient for both, but at the time the importer needs coffee, then the exporter has to enter the market and buy to embark .
The supply of coffee in the domestic market is very small, one hour will appear the large crop failure of 2017/2018.
