(Bloomberg) -- Arabica coffee futures fell to the lowest in almost seven months amid an improving production outlook in some key producers.

Exports from top shipper Brazil have increased in July and should improve further in the following months, Rabobank analyst Guilherme Morya wrote in a Tuesday report. “The excellent progress of the Brazilian harvest is exerting downward pressure on arabica coffee prices.”

The most-active arabica coffee contract lost for a sixth straight day, falling as much as 2.1% in New York to the lowest intraday price since Jan. 17.

Higher global output is expected in the second half of the year, according to Guus Bremer, a trader at London-based importer DRWakefield. Another key supplier, Colombia, should face balanced supply-and-demand scenario next season, he added. Together with a favorable harvest in Brazil, that has pressured arabica-coffee futures, despite shrinking inventories in exchange-monitored warehouses.
