Ethiopia: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Ethiopia’s coffee production for MY20/21 (Oct-Sep) is forecast to be 7.5 million 60-kilogram bags (450,000 metric tons). Exports are forecast to reach a record 4.12 million bags (247,200 metric tons). The United States was the fourth largest buyer of Ethiopian coffee in 2018/19, accounting for nearly ten percent of total Ethiopian coffee exports by volume. U.S. coffee imports totaled US$ 5.7 billion in the MY 2018/19 with $120 million of that from Ethiopia. For the 2019/20 marketing year, experts say Ethiopian exports will reach around 3.9 million bags of coffee (234,000 metric tons). This export downturn is due to the COVID-19 crisis causing reduced orders from importers and a slowdown in local and international transport. Coffee is Ethiopia’s most important export commodity, accounting for about 29 percent of the value of all exports in 2018/19.
