Coffee was introduced in this country in mid-18th century. Ghana is well known around the world for being the second largest cocoa producing country in the whole world. Coffee growing in Ghana is a small sector. However, the coffee industry has been growing rapidly in the last couple of years due to the government effort to make Ghana one of the few recognized coffee producing countries in the world. Remember that this country has a very low altitude. The highest altitudes in Ghana is about 400 meters above sea level. You can agree with me that indeed this must be very low considering that other countries have more than 2400 meters about sea level.

Conditions that favor the growth of coffee in Ghana

Ghana is blessed with warmer climates when compared to other African countries. You will find desert winds that brow from the south to the north of Ghana. If you have been to this country, you can attest that there are hot days and cooler nights. The cooler nights are very crucial when it comes to delayed ripening. It is said that the cooler nights experienced in Ghana contribute to the unique coffee flavor. Coffee beans have a long period of interaction with the fruity cherry.

Robusta coffee beans are known to thrive well in altitudes of about 400 meters. However, Arabica coffee will not do well in this country. Another thing that favors coffee growing in Ghana is ample rainfall. Furthermore, this area has good soils and moderate varying temperatures.

Future of coffee growing in Ghana

The Ghana government has initiated a rehabilitation coffee program. The main aim of starting this program is to increase the yields of coffee in the country. By the end of this year, Ghana is targeting to double its production. To facilitate that, the government under the agricultural agencies have more than five million seedlings. Interestingly, they are distributing these seedlings to farmers for free. The best thing about these seedlings is that they are early maturing and high yielding. This will indeed help the country increase the total coffee production.

Coffee processing in Ghana

Natural or sun drying is the most common method of processing coffee beans in Ghana. It is good to know that the drying method is very crucial. To produce quality coffee beans, this has to be done with much care. Usually, the processing of the coffee cherries is done immediately after picking.

Final Thoughts

The highly caffeinated coffee produced in Ghana is brewed using a lot of sweetening. This is done to deal with the bitter taste of the coffee beans.
