Ghana Coffee Overview

Ghana is the world’s second-largest cocoa producer but ranks just 48th in coffee production. That seems unlikely to change much as Ghana’s climate and topography–the highest point is just over 1,200 feet above sea level–exclude it from growing Arabicas. However, Ghana does grow nearly five million pounds of coffee each year, much of which is exported as green coffee.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
