Wednesday, February 29, 2012

The drop in international coffee prices has led growers in Honduras to revise downward their projections for income this year.

Originally, the growers predicted $1.5 billion in earnings this year, but now they are predicting $1.3 billion.

The reference price per quintal in January was $216; now it has dropped to $205. The price in February of last year was $367.
