Producers Of Coffee From Around The World

Coffee drinking is at an all time high. People from every part of the world love their daily cup (or cups) of coffee. If you are a coffee lover and needs to have that cup of caffeine in the morning, then you know that you would not give it up for anything else.

Have you ever asked yourself where your coffee comes from? Coffee normally travels a far distance to reach you. The price of coffee will fluctuate depending on the weather in different parts of the world and the crops. You are probably surprised and interested to learn that the small coffee bean has a long distance to travel before it reaches you cup.

Where does that cup of coffee come from? Coffee is grown throughout the world. That is a fact. However, the most delicious and the largest supply of coffee beans come from locations around the world that experience tropical climates. Coffee beans (actually fruit) needs diffused sunlight, a good amount of rain and high humidity.

Usually, coffee beans are grown in tropical and sub tropical climates of the world. Brazil is the largest producer of coffee beans in the world. This country produces approximately 28% of the total coffee beans grown in the world. Following Brazil is Colombia, which produces 16% of coffee beans and Indonesia, which produces 7%. Mexico is also a popular producer of coffee beans, as they grow 4%.Other countries also grow and produce coffee, but these places are by far the most popular.

Since Brazil is the most popular location and the largest producer of coffee, it would be economically devastating if something were to happen to the crop of coffee beans in this area. Brazil employs thousands of workers each and every day as coffee bean plantations in this area cover much of the rural areas.

It is interesting to note that the rugged mountains in this country means that coffee beans are still carried out by mule much of the time. This certainly gives a new meaning to your daily cup of coffee when you think about all the hard work and the long way that it has come to reach you.

If you do not live in the right areas of the world, growing coffee beans can be a frustrating task. However, coffee growers take pride in the coffee that they can produce and many coffee lovers enjoy tasting coffee beans grown by the smaller companies.

The next time that you sit down to enjoy a cup of coffee. Think about what it has gone through to reach your cup coffee is a huge industry all over the world. Whether it comes from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico or an individual coffee grower, your delicious daily cup of coffee takes work before you can even enjoy that cup.
