Similar to Kenya, coffee arrived with French missionaries in the late 1800s and was planted around Mount Kilimanjaro. With its Indian influences, the Indian Kent varieties came from Mysore in the 1920s. In general, there are two varieties widely used today: the Bourbon-descended N39 hybrid and the Kent hybrid KP432, as well as Kent K7 and K9 varieties .
