Guatemala: Coffee Annual

Commodities

Coffee production for Marketing Year (MY) 2020 (Oct. 2019-Sept. 2020) is forecast at 3.39 million 60- kilogram bags. Coffee production in Guatemala for MY2018 and MY2019 fell from last years’ estimates. Exports for MY2020 are forecast to continue at 3.1 million bags, as in the previous years. Planted area is kept at 305,000 Ha, with continued renovation. Coffee farmers are struggling with low international prices, coffee rust and a volcanic eruption combined with drought, and significant loan defaults. The United States, Japan and Canada continue to be the top export markets.
