Coffee drinking has become very popular around the world, especially since it's
available on nearly every street corner coffee shop and quick mart. Coffee beans
are grown in many regions between the Tropic of Cancer to the North and the
Tropic of Capricorn below the equator. Coffee can grow anywhere from sea level
up to about 7,000 feet, which leads to many different possibilities to satisfy
any taste. However, the highest quality grades of coffee are grown at the higher
altitudes. There are over eighty countries that produce coffee. The following
are some of the larger coffee producing regions in the world today:Brazil:Coffee
was first introduced to Brazil in 1727. Today, Brazil is the world's largest
producer of coffee – producing about 25% of the world's supply. About 80% of the
coffee beans grown in Brazil are Arabica. Brazil is also known in the specialty
coffee industry. Brazilian farms grow primarily Bourbon, Typica, Caturra and
Mundo Novo coffee cultivars.The Brazilian harvests take place between March and
October. The farmers harvest the coffee cherries by strip picking and other
mechanical methods. Depending on the weather conditions, either the dry or wet
method of bean processing is used.Columbia:Coffee was introduced in Columbia in
the early 1800's. Today Columbia is second only to Brazil as the world's largest
coffee producer. Columbia produces about 12% of the world's supply of coffee.
The Columbian coffees are rich in flavour with a heavy body and bright acidity.
They are known to be intensely aromatic.The Columbian harvests take place
between October and February, and then again between April and June. Columbian
farms grow Bourbon, Typica, Caturra and Maragogype coffee
cultivars.Mexico:Coffee was first planted in Mexico in the late 1700's. The
coffee bean grown in Mexico is generally considered to be an uncomplicated bean,
and is used more as a base for blending. The Mexican farms grow Bourbon, Mundo
Novo, Caturra and Maragogype cultivars. These are usually grown organically on
small farms.Guatemala:The climate in Guatemala is very diverse due to the soil,
rainfall, humidity, altitude and temperature. For this reason, Guatemala has
seven distinct coffees that are produced. The time of harvest varies throughout
the regions, but is primarily October through January.Indonesia and New
Guinea:Sumatran coffees are some the heaviest, yet smoothest and most complex
coffees in the world. Their most notable coffees are the Mandheling and Lintong
types. These are grown inland.Honduras:The coffees produced in Honduras are
generally considered unremarkable in quality, but are a good base for use in
blending. The Honduran harvesting takes place between October and March and
generally the wet process method is used. The Honduran farms grow Bourbon,
Caturra and Typica coffee cultivars. Very little of the Honduran coffees or
coffee blends reach the United States.Ethiopia:The coffees grown in Ethiopia are
widely considered the most unique and fascinating coffees in the world. The
three common types of coffees grown in Ethiopia are Harrar, Ghimbi and Sidamo.
These are known for their full bodies and rich aromas, and each has its own
fruit-like tastes.Some other countries that also produce coffee are Costa Rica,
Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Malawi, Nicaragua, Tanzania,
Uganda and Venezuela.
