Hello Bee. Weather pre-flower and post flower 30 days according to what I kept track of was much less than ideal for a bumper. I sustain that there will be lower figures outcome come this harvesting season but not because of weather NOW. Any losses from previous estimates will have been the result of the weather many moons ago. Even there, I might be wrong. Look at all our trustworthy Braziian friends are like Flavio, MoY, Orb, TerraForte--they are all saying coffee areas are living an ideal weather. Look at accumulated precipitation in distribution of areas and time, and amounts are all very fine for coffee.
The map that you posted is really a misleading interpretation of how actual moisture works on coffee trees. Not discrediting the source or the map, it is just not to be used when judging whether coffee trees are benefiting or suffering from moisture.
