In coffee exports, Tanzania has experienced an increase of 11% over the previous 10 years. That might not seem like much until you consider that only two other African countries have experienced growth by the same measure, Ethiopia (37%) and Uganda (1%). Tanzania broke the 1 million bags exported ceiling for the first time in 2009 and did it again in 2013. This increase in exports has coincided with a remarkable 600 percent increase in domestic coffee consumption over twenty years. Once known among specialty coffee roasters primarily for its peaberry, Tanzania is now seen as a more versatile specialty coffee producer.
