Guinea Coffee Overview

Guinea is a small nation in West Africa that exclusively grows Robusta coffee and has a major Robusta-growing region: Macenta.

Macenta has been producing coffee since the 1800s, powering what was a formidable coffee-growing industry in the country until the 1960s. Though Robusta coffee is generally considered inferior to Arabica, Macenta-grown Robusta is among the more coveted Robusta beans in the world due to its smoother profile.

About The Coffee Maven

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!
