MILAN – Coffee exports from South Sumatra’s Lampung province, the main coffee growing area in Indonesia, fell 71 percent on year in December, according to local government statistics.

The province shipped 8,649 tonnes (144,150 60-kg bags) of coffee beans in December 2017, from 29,695 in the same month last year, local government data showed.

Total exports in calendar year 2017 reached 210,931 tonnes.

This sharp fall is mainly due to a lack of supply according to the country’s coffee exporters association, or Aeki.

Indonesian embassy encourages coffee exports to Egypt

The Indonesian Embassy in Cairo continues to encourage the exports of Indonesian coffee to Egypt, the embassy noted in a press statement received in Jakarta on Thursday.

Indonesian Ambassador to Egypt Helmy Fauzy received leaders of two Egyptian companies that import Indonesian coffee: General Manager of Super Star Trading Co. Hesham Barrada and CEO of Green Coffee Export & Import Co. Shehta El Bahnasawy.


Bahnasawy explained that his company had been importing coffee products from various countries since 2000, but in the past seven years, it had been continuously importing Robusta and Arabica coffee beans from Indonesia.

“Consumption of coffee in Egypt is very high, and we encourage young exporters to seize opportunities to export coffee bean products to Egypt,” Ambassador Fauzy remarked.
