Costa Rica: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Costa Rica’s MY 2018/2019 coffee crop reached 1,298,000 60 kilogram (kg) bags, the lowest level in 40 years. Coffee production was 15 percent lower compared to the MY 2017/2018 coffee crop. Lower production was the result of unfavorable weather conditions, a higher incidence of coffee rust, and lower productivity. Production is forecast to increase by approximately 5 percent in MY 2019/2020 based on the biannual cycle, although the expectation of reduced and irregular rainfall volume could result in lower production.
