NEW YORK, Oct 17 (Reuters) - The amount of green coffee stored at ports in the United States, the world's largest consumer of the beverage, fell by 71,608 60-kg bags at the end of September to 6.37 million bags, data from the Green Coffee Association (GCA) showed on Monday.
It was the first fall since March for the data which includes both the coffee at ICE exchange warehouses and volumes kept by other market participants at U.S. ports (see table below).
The reduction in the stocks follows a large increase reported for the end of August of 227,000 bags.
In September 2021, stocks were at 6.02 million bags, according to data compiled by Reuters.
Overall stocks remain at a relatively low level, far from volumes close to 7.5 million bags seen in 2019 when the global market had better levels of supply.
