Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Kenyan coffee production fell 13 percent in the 2010-11 season after a drought cut yields, a coffee traders body said.
Output in the 12 months to Sept. 30 declined to 36,629 metric tons from 42,096 tons a year earlier, Isaac Muchomba, an official at the Kenya Coffee Traders Association, said by phone today from the capital, Nairobi.
“We really had terrible weather in the main growing central and eastern regions which hurt our yields,” he said.
