Costa Rican coffee exports surge in May

Friday, June 2, 2017

Costa Rican coffee exports rose nearly 6 percent in May to reach 182,180 60-kg bags, the country's national coffee institute ICAFE said on Thursday.

The Central American nation shipped 707,556 bags during the first eight months of the current 2016/2017 season, down about 15 percent compared to the same eight-month period in the previous cycle.

Costa Rica is one of the region's smaller producers but famed for its high-quality bean.
