Zimbabwe Coffee Overview

Zimbabwe probably (OK, definitely) isn’t the first East African country you think of when it comes to coffee. But interestingly, this country has a lot to offer in terms of profile (though they certainly don’t have a lot to offer in terms of production).

Zimbabwe coffee tends to be earthier with leather or tobacco notes and is exceptionally savory.

Unfortunately, Zimbabwe has seen its production drop over the last 20-30 years as farms have been seized and production costs have been high. Nespresso is looking to revive Zimbabwe’s coffee industry, which is a boon for those who enjoy trying the signature beans from non-traditional coffee-growing countries.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

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!
