Guatemala: Record Coffee Sales

September 2011

Foreign exchange earnings from exports of the aromatic 2010-11 crop will total $1,100 million.

The $1,100 million figure, represents a 59% increase compared to the 2009-10 harvest ($ 691.4 million), according to the National Coffee Association (Anacafe).

The record revenues are the result of the excellent prices which coffee reached during the 2010/2011 production, an average of $289 per quintal.

$1,000 million in Guatemalan Coffee

July 2011

Coffee sales abroad in the years 2011-2012 are estimated to increase by 17%.

A 17% increase in export of the harvest which begins in August and ends in October 2012, is expected by the National Coffee Association (Anacafe).

If these estimates are met it would mean that for the first time Guatemala will export the equivalent of $1,000 million worth in bags of coffee, a figure which could be achieved partly thanks to high grain prices that currently prevail internationally.
