It is predicted that this year coffee exports will drop in both volume and value as a result of extreme weather. Coffee output is expected to hit around 1.3 million tons, down 20-30% compared to last year.

Early this year, the International Coffee Organization predicted that the world coffee industry will continue to witness output decline for the third consecutive year.
