Coffee’s roots in Tanzania can be traced via oral history back to the Haya tribe of Northwest Tanzania in the 16th century.
Coffee in Tanzania was grown almost exclusively in the North for a long time. The Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Tarime, Kagera, Kigoma and Karatu/Ngorongoro regions were prized for their ideal Arabica growing conditions.
This coffee is grown in the relative new southern growing region, established in the 1980s supported by european backers. In an ironic twist, today 75 to 85% of total coffee production in Tanzania today comes from farms in the south.
