$300 million windfall for El Salvador’s coffee crop

Monday, February 14, 2011

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.
