Honduras Says Coffee Exports Set to Drop 9% After El Nino, Coup

Coffee exports from Honduras, set to become the world’s sixth-biggest exporter, will be about 9 percent lower than forecast this crop year because of losses from bad weather and a coup, an industry association said.

The country will export 4.2 million 46-kilogram bags in the crop year ending next month, Mario Ordonez, technical manager at the Honduran Coffee Institute in Tegucigalpa, said in a telephone interview. The Institute had projected exports of 4.6 million bags this year, from 4.4 million a year earlier.
