In London, the main contract fell $73 to close the day at $2,676 a tonne, above Wednesday’s 1-1/2 week low.

According to Barchart, coffee prices were undercut by global economic gloom sparked by Friday’s weak U.S. and Eurozone purchasing managers reports.

Meteorologists said Brazil will experience above average temperatures and dry weather until at least the beginning of July, meaning limited risk of frost in the coffee belt.
