Indonesian coffee production fell by 5.6 per cent to 10.2 million bags in its crop year ending March 2019.
In its latest report on the market, the International Coffee Organization (ICO) said shipments during crop year 2018/19 declined by 33.7 per cent to 5.15 million bags.
In addition to the decline in output, steadily increasing consumption has reduced the availability of coffee for exports.
The ICO noted that around 75 per cent of Indonesia’s green coffee exports are shipments of green Robusta, which reached 2.06 million bags in the first nine months of the coffee year compared to 2.44 million bags last year.
The share of soluble in the total exports has increased from 5.9 per cent in 2010/11 to 20.7 per cent in 2018/19.
Total soluble shipments in the first nine months amounted to 749,372 bags.
