Coffee is an important global export commodity and is one of the most consumed beverages in the world. Ghana is noted as the world’s second biggest exporter of premium cocoa beans. However, coffee has potential to do equally well with required investments and greater attention.
The agroecological diversity of Ghana presents a potential for the production of high quality coffee varieties based on the characterisation of terroirs. The history of Robusta coffee production in Ghana dates back to the mid-eighteenth century. It grows in almost all parts of the country where cocoa grows, as well as in areas that are marginal to cocoa production. Unfortunately, coffee has not received the needed focus compared to cocoa. We hope this situation is addressed soon.
