Cameroon’s Robusta and Arabica Coffee Export Prices Decline

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Prices for both robusta and arabica coffee exports from Cameroon declined in the week through Jan. 22, according to the nation’s Cocoa and Coffee Board.

The average export price for robusta, which is used in instant coffee and espresso, decreased 0.6 percent to 859 CFA francs ($1.70) a kilogram (2.2 pounds) from 864 francs a week earlier, Richard Adzogo, an official at the Douala-based board’s information department, said in a mobile-phone text message today.

The price for arabica fell 9 percent to 2,317 francs per kilogram, Adzogo said. Cameroon has shipped 36 metric tons of arabica since the season began in October, according to the board’s data. Robusta exports have reached 29,557 tons since the December start of the harvest period.
