Ethiopia Earns $841.6 Mln from Coffee Exports

Ethiopia earned 841.6 million dollars from the export of about 200,000 tonnes of coffee in 2010/2011 fiscal year. The country is planning to raise its coffee production to 700,000 tonnes from 300,000 tonnes over the coming four years.

Experts said that the increase in the quantity of coffee exported from Ethiopia was due to the introduction in 2008 of a commodity exchange market, which promoted transparent trading, and rising global commodity prices.
