Tanzanian Coffee output to double next season

The Tanzania Coffee Board announced this week that the country's coffee production is expected to double next year, from 32,000 to 61,000 metric tons. The increase in output is due to natural bi-annual growing cycles and favorable weather. 

Tanzanian production is famous for peaberry, historically, but recent harvests have not produced excellent coffee. Coffee is generally exported through trade groups and large bundlers, and very little estate coffee of quality is separately available. Badbeard continues to sample roast Tanzanian coffees, but it seems that higher quality beans are coming from Burundi and Rwanda.
