El Salvador’s coffee exports surge to $61 million export record in April

Friday, May 13, 2011

El Salvador’s coffee exports set a record in value terms in April at $61.3 million, up from $23.6 million in the same month of last year.

The year-on-year volume increase was 80 percent, added the Salvadoran Coffee Council.

The surge in sales is due to a strong recovery of the harvest following years of floods, the eruption of a volcano and the exhaustion of some estates.
