Coffee Growing Countries

Reviews of Coffee Growing Countries

Coffee Growing Countries Coffee originated in Africa but has since been spread all over the world. It grows commercially in over 21 countries. There are two commercial types: Arabica, which is grown where rain is plentiful and at higher altitudes. The higher the altitude generally the better the quality. Robusta, which by its name suggests that it is quite hardy and easy to grow. Lower grade of coffee grown at lower altitudes. Usually used in instant coffee, or blended in with Arabica coffee, much to the detriment of the better grade coffee.
