Coffee cultivation only for the island’s own needs.
- Plantations for copra, coffee, vanilla and cinnamon were established in the 19th century.
- These are now wild.
- In the 25 hectare Jardin du Roi (Garden of the King) in the south of Mahé you can get to know the different spices of the Seychelles daily between 10.00 and 17.30, including cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, pepper, nutmeg, coffee and cocoa as well as various flowers such as hibiscus.
- In cafés you often got only instant coffee or Segafredo and Illy.
- Because the demand was so big, since January 2017 there is Seycafe from the Seychelles Trading Company (STC).
- Seycafe is a blend of coffee beans from Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
- There is also the brand Tropicafe which offers a tropical coffee produced in the Seychelles, called Tropical Dream.
- Coffee is not exported because the production only covers the island’s own needs
