The Amazing & Rare Coffee from Guyana is Now Available to The World
History - Guyana Rainforest Coffee


For the first time since 1810, the agricultural gem of the world, Guyana, is exporting coffee out of this blessed land. Coffee from Guyana is so rare and uncommon that it’s even unknown in it’s own country of origin. Coffee estates are situated deep in the interior region of Guyana, which is also known as the miraculous Amazon Rainforest. The Rainforest covers 80% of Guyana.

I’m excited to write this article to inform and educate coffee consumers around the world of this one-of-a-kind coffee with an ancient lineage that is now available to them. This article will be the only reliable source to anything and everything related to coffee from Guyana, as we are the exclusive and only importer of this coffee in the world.

1) Where is coffee grown in Guyana?

Unlike popular coffee producing countries, coffee plantations in Guyana are very difficult to get to. You basically need to travel across the country, then by speedboat up a deep and piranha filled Rainforest River, more commonly known as the Pomeroon River, then a short hike into the Amazon Rainforest.

For this reason, coffee farmers live off the banks of the Pomeroon River and coffee cherries are transported via boat to the mainland for further processing.

2) What is the history of coffee from Guyana?

  • The history of coffee from Guyana is deep rooted with a remarkable history that even people from Guyana are unaware of.
  • Coffee plants, originally from Yemen, were brought to coast of South America that included Guyana, from the Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam in the early 1700s. The coffee plants brought over at that time were the original Typica cultivar.
  • By 1810, Guyana exported over 22 million pounds of coffee and was the largest producer of coffee in the Western Hemisphere. It’s believed that coffee seeds from Guyana started the world famous coffee industry in Columbia, but I’m sure this is something they will never admit to.

  • Britain, Holland, Portugal, France and Spain all engaged in battles to claim this lucrative land for sugar production. In 1831, the British Empire prevailed and took full control of the world famous Sugar Industry of Guyana.
  • Coffee farmers abandoned coffee estates for the more lucrative and popular sugar industry.
  • The coffee industry of Guyana was left to the waist site until 2015, when Louis Holder the CEO of Amy’s Pomeroon Foods Inc. located in Guyana had a vision to rejuvenate this lost industry.

4) Which countries import coffee from Guyana?

An extremely small portion of coffee is available in Guyana and out of that small portion only one distributor processes the Guyana Coffee beans in a manner that can be considered as premium grade. This method is known as the “ Wet Process” this process basically uses machinery and a water based process to separate the green coffee bean from the cherry.

These premium coffee beans are exported to our company, Guyana Rainforest Coffee and we distribute within Canada and the United States with major popularity in New York City, Toronto and Florida. We are also establishing distribution in the United Kingdom.

“Guyana Coffee has a hint of natural sweetness and touch of a fine red wine after taste that is perfectly entangled with a slight smoked cocoa flavour and a palate-pleasing hint of golden citrus and rich coconut that is superiorly smooth, rich and full bodied, with absolutely no bitterness. You have never had a cup of coffee like this and it’s the best coffee I ever had.”

9) Why is the supply so limited and are there plans for an increase of supply?

Unfortunately, the supply of coffee in Guyana is very limited due to workforce shortage, a difficult harvest, also due to the Guyana coffee beans being a special and exotic variety of coffee. The harvest is much more tedious than the popular Arabica coffee bean.

The supply chain to export coffee out of Guyana is also very complex that requires a lot of effort.

We have plans to increase supply and production of coffee in Guyana with the potential assistance of private investors and government bodies.
