Ethiopia Coffee Growers Expect Another Record Year for Exports

  • Internal conflict said not to be affecting Ethiopian exports
  • Ugandan growers also enjoying boom with shipments soaring

A deteriorating political crisis in Ethiopia, Africa’s biggest coffee producer, hasn’t disrupted exports and growers expect another record year as foreign rivals struggle.

Ethiopia exported 86,000 tons of coffee during the three months through October, generating $327.9 million, 77% more than projected, according to the Ethiopia Tea and Coffee Authority.
