The executive director of Icafé, Xinia Chaves, explained that traditionally the ups and downs of the Costa Rican coffee crop are explained by the cyclical behavior of the plantations, that is to say, that one year they have a strong production and the following year they decrease in view of the recharge suffered.

Chaves added, that the impact of the aging of the plantations had an effect on the decrease of the current period.
