Brazil exported 2.65 million 60-kg bags of green coffee in May, less than the upwardly revised 2.8 million bags shipped in April, the Council of Green Coffee Exporters said on Monday. Even with drought damaging the crop, which is entering the peak-harvest period, Cecafe said recently that Brazil will likely increase coffee exports by 6 percent this year because of plentiful stocks.

According to Cecafe data, Brazil has exported 27.81 million bags of green coffee since the start of the crop year in July of last year. That is up 11 percent from the previous 11-month period that ended on May 2013, when 25.1 million bags were shipped.
