India’s coffee exports rose by 42 per cent to 3,60,540 tonnes in the 2010-11 coffee year ended September this year, according to a report by the International Coffee Organisation (ICO).

Shipments of the brew from the country stood at 2,53,895 tonnes on the 2009-10 coffee year (October-September), ICO data said.

According to the government-owned Coffee Board of India, the country’s exports of the brew rose by 31 per cent to 3,60,540 tonnes in the last coffee year against 2,71,859 tonnes in the 2009-10 coffee year.

However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has put coffee exports from India much lower than that of the Coffee Board and the ICO.

According to USDA, the country’s coffee exports rose by 30 per cent to 3,30,000 tonnes in 2010-11 coffee year against 2,53,740 tonnes in the year-ago period.

India largely exports coffee to Italy, Germany, Russia, Belgium and Spain.

The global body on coffee has put the production in 2010-11 coffee year at about 3,03,600 tonnes, while Coffee Board has put the output at 3,02,000 tonnes.
