Suriname Coffee Overview

Coffee arrived in Suriname between 1712-1718 by Dutch colonists. Early coffee plantations were built on the backs of slaves, and the release of slaves in 1873 hurt agricultural production as the plantations couldn’t be managed. Of the estimated 200 colonial-era plantations in Suriname, only one survived beyond the abolition of slavery. This plantation is the major producer of Suriname’s Arabica bean today, which is like many other South American beans.

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!
