Arabica coffee exports dip in Jan

 India’s exports of arabica coffee fell by 26 per cent to 5,482 tonne in January this year on account of unseasonal rains, which lead to a delayed harvest.

The country had exported 7,392 tonne of the premium variety also called mountain coffee in the year-ago period, according to latest Coffee Board data. “Arabica exports declined in January 2012 due to unseasonal rains in end-November and early-December last year, which resulted in the harvest being delayed by 3-4 weeks,” Coffee Exporters Association President Ramesh Rajah said.

The export scenario for other coffee variety robusta was positive in January this year.
Overseas shipments of robusta rose by 12 per cent to 8,319 tonne last month from 7,450 tonne in the same period of the previous year.

Total coffee exports in January 2012 rose marginally to 20,969 tonne from 20,193 tonne in the year-ago period, the data noted.
