KAMPALA (Reuters) - Uganda's coffee exports fell 17 percent to 219,948 60-kg bags in November compared with the same month a year ago, a source at the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) said on Tuesday. The source said UCDA forecast that December exports will also fall to 240,000 bags from 257,976 bags shipped in the same month in 2013, with the drop attributed to a gradual peaking of the coffee harvest in central and eastern Uganda. The source said Uganda earned $29.5 million from coffee exports last month, up from $26.7 million earned in same period last year.
