Tanzania: Coffee Annual

Commodities

The United States is buying green coffee beans from Tanzania, despite unreliable traceability mechanisms. In Marketing Year (MY) 2018/19 Tanzania exported more than five million bags of green coffee to the United States, which was valued at more than US$ 21.5 million and accounted for 13.2 percent of Tanzania’s total coffee exports. FAS/Dar es Salaam forecasts a drop in production from 1.3 million bags in MY 2018/19 to 1.25 million bags in MY 2019/20, due to poor weather conditions, poor agricultural practices, and waning farmer interest in coffee.
