History of Coffee in Tanzania

Taking the average number of bags exported annually 2007-2017—to account for crop fluctuations—Tanzania experienced an increase of 11 percent 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 million bags exported ceiling for the first time in 2009 and did it again in 2013. This increase in exports has coincided with a near 600 percent increase in domestic coffee consumption over twenty years. The only coffee growing country to experience a more dramatic increase is Vietnam, where domestic coffee consumption has grown by 700 percent over the same period. 

Growing Coffee in Tanzania

In specialty coffee, Tanzania has been long known for its peaberry, often the only Tanzanian coffee on offer from most roasters, but that is changing. Olam has brought its integrated supply chain approach to the region, an approach that not only helps ensure quality, but provides an opportunity to increase sustainable practices. Such is the case with Olam’s Aviv Coffee Plantation in southern Tanzania.
