Guatemala: Coffee Annual

Commodities

Despite the coffee outbreak back in 2011-2013, which reduced 25 percent of the record-high production of 3.8 million (60 Kg bag) achieved in MY 2011/2012, Guatemala’s coffee production has moderately recovered. Coffee production in marketing year (MY) 2015/2016 (October 2015-September 2016) is estimated to reach 3.4 million (60 Kg) bags, 6 percent above last year’s harvest and 3 percent above our previous estimate (3.3 million – 60 Kg bag). Exports for MY 2015/2016 are estimated at 3.1 million bags (60 Kg), a modest recovery from MY 2014/2015 (3.0 million bags – 60 Kg), and 3 percent above previous estimate.
