Indias coffee exports rose 7% to 21,557 tonne in January, but value-realisation per unit remained low due to weak global prices and higher demand for cheaper coffee on account of the worldwide economic slowdown, according to the Coffee Board.

In the coming months as well, exporters said, coffee shipments from India are expected to be normal but export value realisation would be down by 10-15%. According to the Coffee Board data, India exported 21,557 tonne coffee in January.
