Nigerian Coffee Overview

Coffee production has been in decline in Nigeria and it doesn’t show signs of stopping as the current crop of trees is approaching the end of their fruit-bearing years and farmers lack the expertise needed to keep crops thriving.

At this point, Nigerian coffee exclusively is a commodity-grade export with little hope for improved quality or quantity in the short-term.

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!
