In the 12 months ending next September, about 3.45 million bags of exportable coffee will be lost from the 13.8 million expected in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Costa Rica, said Jose Angel Buitrago, the president of the Central American Organization of Coffee Exporters, or Orceca, citing figures compiled from the region’s main grower groups.

Small coffee producers bring their day's harvest to a "coyote," or coffee buyer, who weighs and buys their coffee.
