It is worth noting that Tanzania produces more than 40,000 metric tons annually. More than four thousand people depend fully on the coffee industries. Tanzania coffee is not only premium but also high quality. In Tanzania, coffee is one of the top exports. It has been playing a significant role in the economy in the last couple of years.

Introduction of Tanzania coffee

Coffee farms in this country are green fields that extend through the Zanzibar gateways. Coffee was first introduced in this country through trading that was taking place between Tanzania and the nearby countries. It is said that a tribe from the North West of the nation smoked coffee fruits. They did not drink the dark beverage.

After German and British nationals landed in the country to colonize Tanzania, they developed coffee growing. People who lived near the highlands of Mt Kilimanjaro worked on the extensive coffee farms.

The coffee industry became promising to the country especially after the independence. The public was responsible for farm management. By then, the coffee industry was facing a lot of problems. As a result of numerous complications that were being experienced in the country, the Tanzania government privatized coffee growth. Nowadays, coffee growing in Tanzania consists of small scale and large scale farmers.

Coffee flavor profile

People prefer Tanzania coffee because of its fruity taste and bright acidity. You can mistake this coffee with Kenyan coffee. The main reason why Tanzania coffee is quite similar to Kenyan coffee is that they share the same equatorial climate and the same origin. You can attest that the pea berry coffee from this country has a special delicacy.

Visiting coffee farms in Tanzania

There are several companies in Tanzania that air tourists in the coffee plantations. Their main aim is to provide you with a good adventure experience. You can also have a chance to drink a cup of tasty coffee as you trek the plantations.

Moshi is one of the places you should consider visiting when you tour these plantations. The union café in Moshi is known to provide one of the most classic local coffee cups. Zanzibar house is another place you should not forget to visit.
