SOUTH AMERICAN ARABICA BEANS
Tropical climates around the equator provide optimum conditions for the 'Coffea Arabica' tree to grow. The Arabica beans attained from this tree are the most sought after worldwide and are believed to have been the first species of coffee beans to be cultivated.
Central America is one of the globally renowned hotspots for coffee in modern times; the tropical weather, along the equator, as well as its typically mountainous topography, provide the optimum climate and altitude to produce the unmatched sweet and fruity beans that the region is famous for.
Brazil, specifically, is the world’s leading coffee producer and exporter; produces nearly a third of all the coffee consumed worldwide!
INDIAN ROBUSTA BEANS
Coffee grown in India, on the other hand, has a different set of climatic requirements; Robusta is able to grow in hot and humid climates in the south of India. Farmers have been intercropping coffee beans with spices (nutmeg, turmeric, allspice and ginger) to produce different flavors for centuries, giving Indian coffee its edge and making their beans some of the best and most popular beans out there.
Admittedly, Indian people have more sophisticated palates than most of the western world, which does explain that they have been able to craft some of the best coffees in the world. Ironically, coffee isn’t a popular commodity internally, as about 80% of all coffee produced in this country is exported.
