    Coffee exports declineThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Exports of Arabica coffee from nine Latin American producers fell 2.21% in the first two months of the 2013-2014 harvest over the same period last year.

    The National Coffee Association (Anacafé) said in a statement that exports from Colombia, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Peru and Dominican Republic totaled 3,818,019 bags of 60 kilos each in last October and November.

    That figure is lower in sacks 86,091 (2.21%) to the 3,904,110 bags were exported in the same period of the harvest 2012-2013.

    With the exception of Colombia, Peru and Dominican Republic, which experienced growth, the rest of the countries had a drop in foreign sales of coffee, according to official information.

    Colombia had an increase of 47.5%, Dominican Republic 14.4% and 7.6% Peru, explained the union source.
