Benin Coffee Overview

While Benin’s lower elevations, which max out around 2,000 feet above sea level, preclude the small West African nation from growing Arabica, they do grow the other three types of coffee: Robusta, Liberica, and the lesser-known Excelsa. Like most other West African countries, including their neighbors Togo and Nigeria, Benin’s primary coffee crop is Robusta.
