India's overall Coffee exports rose to 1,77,805 tonnes during April-August 2017 from 1,62,641 tonnes in the same period last year, up 9.32% year-on-year, an official from the Coffee Board said.

In terms of value, the exports rose to $447 million from $363.1 million.

The exports were driven by value-added Coffee (instant coffee), which contributed nearly 25.5% to total exports from April to August 2017, and this was increasing steadily year-on-year, the official said.

Coffees that are being exported include green Coffee and specialty green Coffee and value-added Coffee. Robusta coffee, imported from countries like Vietnam, is exported after adding value to it here.

In 2016-17, Coffee imports into the country stood at 78,042 tonnes compared to 65,618 tonnes the previous year. In terms of value, the imports jumped to Rs 927 crore ($142 million) from Rs 802 crore ($122 million). Re-exports stood at 79,254 tonnes compared to 67,283 tonnes.

Coffee production in India is expected to cross 3.3 lakh tonnes in 2017-18 as new areas have come under cultivation amid normal monsoon. If the climate and prices are favourable, production can go up to 3.7 lakh tonnes in the next two-three years, said a Coffee Board representative.
