May 15 (Bloomberg) -- Coffee exports from El Salvador fell by 50 percent last month, according to preliminary figures from Consejo Salvadoreno del Cafe, the country’s coffee council.

Shipments declined to 149,514 quintals (114,704 60-kilogram bags) in April from 298,635 quintals in the same period a year earlier, the council said in report e-mailed yesterday.

Most of the beans were shipped to the U.S., Germany, Japan and Canada, according to the report. The U.S. is the world’s biggest consumer and Germany the third, according to the International Coffee Organization in London.

El Salvador will produce 1.6 million bags in the 2011-12 season started in October, according to data on the website of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
