Of this total, 91.4% of exports went to the United States and Central America.

Traditional exports amounted to $76.2 million in January 2013. $28.2 million worth was exported, or $11.8 million less than the previous year, because the price per quintal of coffee fell by 24.1%, from $233.58 in January 2012 to $177.25 in 2013 and export volumes reduced by 12,000 quintals. The good performance of the sugar industry, which exported $47.9 million, helped offset the decline in coffee exports.
