Kenya Coffee Prices Drop as Stockpiles Sufficient to Meet Demand

Kenyan coffee prices fell at an auction yesterday as buyers have enough stockpiles.

The average price fell 5.2 percent to $178.08 for a 50-kilogram (110-pound) bag from $187.80 a week earlier, the Nairobi Coffee Exchange said yesterday. The benchmark AA grade fell 12 percent to an average of $268.61 a bag, it said.

“There wasn’t much demand as people already have stocks,” Mansukh Shah, a coffee trader at Alanwood Ltd. said by phone from Nairobi. “The quality was quite good.”

Sales fell 59 percent to 1,740 bags worth $378,901, the exchange said. Supplies at the auction rose 0.9 percent to 22,941 bags from 22,731 bags, it said.

The following are details of yesterday’s auction in dollars per 50-kilogram bag:
