Guatemala: Coffee Annual
Guatemala maintains its 305,000 Ha of coffee, but harvested area is slightly reduced due to higher production costs, both inputs and labor. Production costs raised 32 percent as fertilizer prices continue doubling and migration is negatively impacting labor availability. Production in MY 2022/2023 is forecast to fall 17 percent and consumption for MY 2022/2023 is revised up to 624,000 60-Kg bags. The United States continues to be the Guatemala’s top coffee export market.
