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.
