International coffee exports rose 6.5% in the first two months of the 2020-21 season compared to the same period a year earlier, the International Coffee Organization (ICO) said in a report on Wednesday. The main factor behind the rise was a jump in exports from Brazil, which produced a record harvest in 2020. Brazilian shipments soared 23% in the period to 8.3 million bags. Exports of mild varieties from Colombia decreased 4.5% in the first two months of the 2020-21 season, while exports of other mild Arabicas fell 5%. Robusta exports fell 1% in that period.
