Coffee Replanting in Tanzania at Mt Kilimanjaro


At the start of the Millennium Tanzania’s government passed new foreign investment legislation that for the first time in over 30 years allowed for private investors to take on long-term leases of the coffee lands. That allowed for much-needed cash injections which helped push massive replanting of the old estates and this has turned Tanzania into one of only a handful of producing countries in the world which has been able to boost production. Tanzania’s best harvest in decades was registered in the 2008-09 cycle which produced about 1.15 million bags, while production in the last few years has averaged around 900,000 bags.
