Zambia Coffee Overview

Like Zimbabwe, Zambia is an East African country that grows distinctively delicious Arabicas in low volume. Zambian coffee is characteristically sweet and smooth with subtle fruity notes.

Originally, coffee was introduced to Zambia from both Kenya and Tanzania in the 1980s, which makes Zambia a recent coffee-growing country.

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!
