Bogota, Colombia -- Colombian coffee production in February, the fifth month of the current 2007-08 crop cycle ended up 8.9% at 1.090 million 60-kilogram bags, Colombia's National Federation of Coffee Growers, or Fedecafe, said Wednesday.

This compares to total Colombian production in February last year in the previous 2006-07 crop cycle (October-September) of 1.001 million bags, Fedecafe said in its monthly production and harvest report.

Coffee exports from Colombia in February were up 16.8% to 1.157 million bags, from total exports in February 2007 of 990,000 bags, Fedecafe said in the report, sent to Dow Jones Newswires in Bogota.

Total coffee production in Colombia in the last 12 months from March 2007 through February 2008 was up 9% to 13.138 million bags, from total harvested output of 12.052 million bags in the year-ago comparative period.

Coffee exports from Colombia in the last 12 months were up 5.3% at 11.622 million bags, from exports in the March-February period a year ago of 11.040 million bags.

Fedecafe's export figures include green, soluble, roasted and other coffee types.

Colombia is the world's largest producer of mild washed arabica coffee, with annual output of between 11 million and 12 million bags in recent years, and is the third-largest producer overall after Brazil and Vietnam.
