The specialty Arabica coffees of majestic Africa are considered to be some of the worlds most exquisite. The dramatically high elevations and lush soil conditions are optimal for the cultivation of premium coffee. There are significant differences between countries in the region; however, in general, washed African Arabica coffees are bright, balanced and contain a citrus, berry, winy, chocolate, fruity, or floral essence. Africa is obviously a huge continent. It's over 30 million kilometers; that's bigger than the United States, China and India combined. So when we say "coffee from Africa" let's remember that we're talking about many different regions. In fact, while Ethiopia and Kenya are well-known as coffee producers, countries like Angola, Burundi, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo are amongst some of Africa's many producers.
