World Wide Coffee Producers

Jan 6, 2008
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.

If you have asked yourself where does that cup of coffee I drink everyday come from, then your answer is that it is grown throughout the world. Now the best tasting and biggest supply of coffee beans come from locations around the globe that experience tropical climates. A good coffee bean needs diffused sunlight, high humidity and a good amount of rain.

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.

The most popular location: Because Brazil is such a huge producer of coffee, it would be economically devastating if something were to happen to the crop of coffee beans in Brazil. Coffee bean plantations cover much of the rural areas and employ thousands of workers each and every day.

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 you have a cup of coffee just think about what it has gone through to reach your cup of coffee. Whether it comes from an individual coffee grower, or from a huge supplier like Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Indonesia, etc., your tasty daily cup of coffee takes work before it reaches your cup.
