Coffee production for Marketing Year (MY) 2019 (Oct. 2018-Sept. 2019) is forecast at 3.3 million 60- kilogram bags. Coffee production in Guatemala decreased six percent from MY2017 to MY2018. Exports for MY2018 are stable at 3.1million bags. Planted area is revised up 9 percent, from 277,000 Ha to 305,000 Ha. Coffee producers are struggling, as depressed prices do not cover costs, especially for small farmers. The United States, Japan and Canada continue to be the top export markets.
