Robusta and Arabica coffee was down under pressure

* May robusta coffee was down $6, or 0.35 percent, at $1,723 a tonne.

* Dealers said industry buying has helped the market rebound from a low last week of $1,671, the weakest for the second month since June 2016.

* They noted the rally had run out of steam before mounting a challenge to major resistance around the 40-day and 100-day moving averages which have been converging around $1,753.
