In all, 20.2 million bags were shipped, a 7.4% growth in comparison with the first nine months of 2006. The data were disclosed by the Brazilian Coffee Exporter Council (CeCafé).

In the accumulated result for the last 12 months, Brazil exported US$ 3.77 billion, a 25.4% growth in comparison with the last 12-month period.

In the month of September, Brazil shipped 2.2 million bags, a volume 12.1% smaller than recorded in the same month of last year, which is proof of the decrease in production in the current crop.

Bags of green coffee were the most shipped in September, at 1.93 million bags; Arabic coffee exports totaled 1.71 million bags; 213,000 bags of Robusta coffee were exported, and 281,000 bags of soluble coffee.

From January to September, Brazil shipped 707,250 bags of coffee to the Arab countries, the equivalent of 3.5% of total Brazilian shipments. Coffee is one of the main Brazilian products imported by the Arab market. The leading buyer country was Syria, which imported 268,160 bags, followed by Lebanon, at 211,250 bags, and by Jordan, at 53,920 bags.
