Guatemala coffee exports fall 0.3 pct this season

 GUATEMALA CITY, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Guatemala closed its
2009/10 coffee harvest with 3.44 million 60-kg bags of exports,
0.3 percent down from the same cycle as the previous season,
the country's coffee growing association said on Monday.
 Global supplies of high-quality arabica beans like those
grown in Guatemala are tight ahead of the next harvest, which
begins next month, helping to push prices to record highs in
recent months.
 In September, Guatemala exported 199,355 60-kg bags of
coffee, a 41 percent jump from the same month last year.
