The Republic of Ghana in West Africa is bordered on the north by Burkina Faso, on the west by the Ivory Coast (Cote D’Ivoire), on the south by the Gulf of Guinea and on the east by Togo. The name Ghana means “Warrior King” and comes from the ancient Ghana Empire.
Ghana has recently made efforts to double its coffee production to 3,000 metric tons and expand acreage planted in coffee to nearly 5,000 acres.

Known predominantly as the world’s second largest cocoa producer, Ghana is increasingly entering the coffee market.
Ghana’s relatively small coffee production makes it the third smallest coffee producer in sub-Saharan Africa behind Liberia and the Central African Republic (which produce about 600 tons each annually).

All are dwarfed by Ethiopia’s coffee production of more than 250,000 tons in a single harvest season (typically from October to September). The only country to surpass Ghana in cocoa production is the Ivory Coast which picks about 132,000 tons of coffee in a harvest season.
