UGANDA coffee exports for September fell by 7% to 207, 927 60-kg bags of coffee, compared with the same month a year ago, an industry source said on Thursday. 

 

This has extended the pattern of lower exports this year.

 

Industry experts in Uganda, Africa’s number one exporter of coffee, which mostly cultivates the robusta variety, said the coffee yield is usually poorer in some parts of the country at this time of the year.

 

“We are at the tail end of the harvest in the south and south-western (coffee) growing areas. Typically, we tend to get small yields,” said a source at the Uganda Coffee Development Authority.
