According to statistics from the National Coffee and Cocoa Union, the annual coffee production has dropped to 30,000 tons. Paradoxically, the consumption has increased.

“We must increase production and consumption at the same time. If we promote consumption without promoting production, we are in for trouble. We might have created a taste without the product. The two must go together otherwise , there will be a paradox if we start importing coffee into Cameroon”
