Venezuelan Coffee Overview

One of the world’s strongest economies in the 1980s, Venezuela has had a rough go of things over the last 40 years. The country used to rival Colombia for coffee production but now makes up just 0.3% of global production with most of that coffee staying within the country’s borders.

The best Venezuelan coffee comes from the western region of the country, called Maracaibos, which borders Colombia. This area has a rich volcanic history, producing coffees that are rich with pleasing acidity and light sweetness. Coffee also is grown in the eastern part of Venezuela and has a softer more tropical or Caribbean 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!
