Meaningful Coffee Varieties from Around the World

Sep 4, 2008
When it comes to coffee, the word variety is only meaningful when the blends produced around the world are all considered. There are so many different blends that variety may even seem like an understatement. Actually, the best way to describe the many blends would be to say it is a buffet of flavor. Each producing country has their own unique twists on coffee that lend a distinct flavor to them. One taste and a coffee expert knows exactly where the brew is from. Learning about coffee blends from around the world is one good way to become an expert on this favorite drink.

Places to go and Taste Test

Colombian coffee is well known throughout the world. One blend from this country is the La Esperanza. These beans are grown at around 6,000 feet and have a high-toned flavor with an aroma that is a blend of cherry and milk chocolate. The taste is something of magnificence. There is also the Supremo which is a complex brew that has hints of vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate, but the flavor fades quickly so it is best enjoyed freshly brewed and hot. Hawaii has the Kona. It can be a medium or dark roast and a light acid taste. However, the espresso here is the leading favorite with its dark and strong flavor. Africa has a blend, Tanzanian Peaberry, that is grown on the southern slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The peaberry bean is a single oval in shape with no flat side. It is a high acid and light body blend. Ethiopia brings a citrusy blend that combines the taste of ginger, orange peel and lemon to create a tart, chocolate flavor. This blend is specific to the Yirgacheffe region. India with a three month long stint of wet winds produces puffy yellow beans that have a pungent brew with undertones of apricot and also the Jumboors blend that has interesting sweet raisins tones. Indonesia has a light roasted blend that is sweet and flowery in taste. The coffee flower is retained to give the brew a hint of cherry taste. In the north are the darker blends with spicy and tropical flavors with hints of cedar and grapefruit. In Vietnam there is the Robusta that is made with a wash, dry and polish process that produces a woody taste. The last place to try out would be Jamaica. The same peaberry beans of Africa can be found here, but the taste is completely different. It is full bodied and has a sweet acid taste with flowery characteristics and is strong brewed.

With all these different places to try out the rainbow of coffee varieties, it is no surprise so many people could not live without their cup of coffee or pot, whatever the case may be, every day.
