$300 million windfall for El Salvador’s coffee crop
El Salvador has achieved the highest prices in decades for its coffee crop. Some 84 percent of the 2010-2011 crop has already been sold.
Thanks to the recovery in prices and future sales, the average price of a quintal of coffee is now $40 higher than it was for the 2009-2010 crop.
Already sales of $300.3 million have been secured in the current crop year, up from $199 million.
