No Major Coffee Rise

MOSCOW () -- Russian coffee importers said Wednesday they had noted a seasonal increase in demand for soluble brands in December and January, but saw no major rise in overall coffee imports in 1996.

Sergei Feyonov of Soyuzplodoimport, the former Soviet coffee importing monopoly, said the Russian market was reaching a saturation level in terms of imports.

"The market is full, it cannot really take much more than it has imported. It will probably stabilize at this stage for some time," he said.
