Sri Lanka Coffee Overview

Known best for Ceylon tea, Sri Lanka has rich soil that’s great for growing coffee. Production is split nearly 50/50 between Arabica and Robusta, and overall production is low in large part due to the country’s love of tea despite the first coffee plants arriving in 1824.

Coffee actually was Sri Lanka’s major crop, more so even than tea, until the 1870s when disease wiped out much of Asia’s coffee crops.

However, coffee is experiencing a surge in popularity and production is increasing.
