The past few months Tuesdays for most have seen the slightest ups or downs upon export prices but this week we had a record price change of 14-17% increments in minimum prices. This all can be traced to ever increasing cherry , parchment prices (highest inflation rate on average 28-30%) recorded for current harvest & crop.The impacts of price gets more amplified to supplies with loose vertical sourcing arrangements. ECX's floor ended with the export-grade trade of 40,173KG natural coffees just above 8,000kgs from the previous week. The trade of Natural Sidamo covered more than 50 % while coffee from keffa bonga covered the remaining portion. Monday & Thursday were silent at ECX’S coffee trading floor.
ECTA's minimum prices for selected naturals have been going Natural Sidamo G4 at 2.31 with a major 31 cents increment from the previous week , Natural Djimmah G5 at $1.97/Ib.& Natural Lekempti G5 at $2.00, in which the two coffees entertained 20 cents & above increments compared to the previous week.
