A study was conducted at Technological Evaluation Centre, Arunachal Pradesh, India to analyse the economic performance of robusta coffee in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh for the years 2011-12 to 2013-14. The average labourers utilized for all the cultural operations were 344 man days per hectare with an average total cost of cultivation of Rs. 41,412 per ha. Of the total cost, labour wages alone accounted for 65% followed by processing cost (22%) and fertiliser cost (7%).  The net returns (including income from inter crops) after deducting the total cost worked out to be Rs. 6,60,155 for the entire farm and Rs. 50,782 per ha. The higher Benefit-Cost ratio of 2.23 for the three years indicated that the coffee is an efficient plantation crop for the tribal growers.
