(Adds comment, updates prices) NEW YORK/LONDON, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Arabica coffee futures on ICE fell to an eleven-month low on Monday, weighed by a large crop, compounded by weakness of Brazil's real currency which fell to its lowest levels since late May early in the session.
* September arabica coffee was down 3.8 cents, or 3.9%, to settle at 93.50 cents per lb.
* Dealers said the market was struggling to absorb another large crop in Brazil with harvesting now in the final stages while there also remained the potential for a record crop next year, the next on-year in the country's biennial crop cycle.
* September robusta coffee was down $27, or 2.1%, at $1,269 a tonne.
* Vietnam, the world's top robusta producer, exported 140,442 tonnes, or 2.34 million 60-kg bags, of coffee in July, down 1.4% from June, customs data showed on Monday.
* October raw sugar was down 0.28 cents, or 2.4% at 11.58 cents per lb.
* Brazil's currency, the real, weakened sharply on Monday, falling below 4 per dollar as local markets saw pressure from surging market volatility and political uncertainty in neighboring Argentina before strengthening later in the session.
* A weaker real increases dollar-denominated prices in local currency terms and can encourage producer selling.
* Dealers said the market was also weighted by concerns about excess nearby supplies and the potential for a large delivery against the October contract, which remains at a discount of more than one cent per lb to March <LSU-1=R>.
* "We still believe the market is oversupplied in the short to medium term and will struggle on the upside," Nick Penney, senior trader with Sucden Financial said in a market update.
* The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Monday raised its outlook for domestic sugar stocks as it slightly increased its production outlook for the 2019-20 crop year.
* An improvement in India's monsoon also means the country's production is likely to bounce back in 2020-21.
* October white sugar was down $4.10, or 1.3%, at $314.50 a tonne.
* December New York cocoa rose $1, $2,243 a tonne, retracing some ground after its recent fall.
* The benchmark second month fell to a low of $2,239 on Friday, its weakest level since May 15.
* December London cocoa was down 6 pounds, or 0.3%, at 1,773 pounds a tonne.
