Honduran coffee exports are expected to climb 14% during the next harvesting season, a senior sector official said on Monday, citing a forecast for more favorable weather conditions as well as new plantations coming online.

Honduras, Central America’s top coffee producer, is seen shipping 6.28 million 60-kg bags during the 2020/2021 season, compared with the 5.52 million bags expected in the current 2019/2020 cycle, which concludes at the end of this month.

“We had a good winter and new areas that will enter into production,” Francisco Ordoñez, president of the board of directors for national coffee institute IHCAFE, told Reuters in a phone interview.
