GeoFront Capital is excited to publicly release our proprietary GFC-Coffee index. This index analyzes the weather conditions in south America, the largest coffee producing region. We’ve developed software that analyzes raw satellite data to extrapolate both temperature and soil moisture metrics. These data are then normalized and compiled into an index. A lower value indicates more ideal growing conditions while an higher value indicates the opposite. Extreme fluctuations in either direction can also mean adverse or extreme weather conditions which might affect the production of coffee. If you have any questions regarding this index or any other data GFC provides, or have unique data and analysis needs related to finance and trading, GFC can provide a comprehensive solution.
