Tanzania Coffee History

Having made its way to Tanzania from its native Ethiopia more than 400 years ago, the coffee plant has long been a valuable trade crop in the country. The arabica variety dominated under German colonization, leading to its widespread naturalization today. However, the robusta species still accounts for about 30 percent of Tanzania’s total produce. Arusha’s arabica beans are particularly notable for their distinctively rich flavor, a product of high elevation and fertile land. Look for opportunities to purchase local produce. Some smaller sellers will also give you the chance to practice your manual bean-grinding skills too.
