(Updates prices and market activity; adds comments, NEW YORK to dateline) NEW YORK/LONDON, July 9 (Reuters) - Arabica coffee futures on ICE climbed on Tuesday, regaining some ground following steep losses in the previous session as dealers were still evaluating the impact of last weekend's frost in top-grower Brazil, while cocoa prices fell from one-year highs.
* September arabica coffee settled up 1.05 cent, or 1%, at $1.0745 per lb after shedding more than 4% in the previous session .
* The market was still processing last weekend's crop-damaging frost in Brazil, with some traders seeing the impact as minimal, while others were still uncertain about its impact and awaiting more information from growers.
* Brazil's Cooxupe, the world's largest coffee cooperative, said it would release a report on Wednesday with its initial evaluation of frosts reported in coffee regions over the weekend.
* The market had touched a seven-month peak of $1.1565 on Friday in anticipation of the frost.
* Still, market fundamentals remained bearish, dealers said, with global consumption rising but not fast enough to absorb increased production in recent years, particularly in Brazil.
* "The rise (in consumption) is still only small and the ample availability of coffee in the coming months is likely to keep bearish sentiment alive for the time being," said Stefan Uhlenbrock, senior commodity analyst at IHS Markit's Agribusiness Intelligence.
* September robusta coffee settled up $10, or 0.7%, at $1,436 per tonne.
* September New York cocoa settled down $55, or 2.1%, at $2,522 per tonne, after touching a one-year high of $2,589 in the previous session.
* September London cocoa settled down 38 pounds, or 2%, at 1,897 pounds per tonne, retreating from Monday's more than one-year high of 1,939 pounds.
* Dealers awaited clarity on a plan by top producers Ivory Coast and Ghana to implement a $2,600 per tonne price floor for their beans.
* October raw sugar settled down 0.1 cent, or 0.8%, at 12.35 cents per lb.
* Dealers said any damage to cane from weekend frosts in Brazil was likely to be minor although a clearer assessment was expected towards the end of this week.
* August white sugar settled down $2.20, or 0.7%, at$319.30 a tonne. Prices earlier dipped to $318.20, within striking distance of the 2019 low of $318.10 set in May.
* Indonesia will cut tariffs on sugar from India as part of efforts to help facilitate imports of the sweetener, Indonesia's trade minister told his counterpart in New Delhi, the Indian government said in a statement on Tuesday.
