Costa Rica: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CS2022-0008

FAS/San José projects marketing year 2022/23 coffee production at 1,365,000 60-kilogram bags, as production volume rebounds from a 50-year low in marketing year 2021/22 when higher rates of fungal disease compounded the impact of a gradual downward trend in production. Though production volume has slowly declined, the Costa Rican industry has been developing the infrastructure needed to obtain higher prices for smaller lots of better quality coffee, providing some insulation from fluctuating world coffee prices.
