Costa Rica: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Based on preliminary data, Costa Rica’s 2016/2017 coffee crop reached 1,347,000 60 kilogram bags. This represents a 17.5 percent drop as compared to the same period a year earlier. The large drop in production was the result of the low year in the production cycle of the main production area of Los Santos combined with flowering problems in the Western Central Valley. Production is expected to increase 15 percent in 2017/2018 based on the initial strong flowering observed throughout the main production areas and also as a result of ongoing investments in plantations.
