If you are a coffee lover, you will appreciate an aromatic cup of coffee to start off the day each morning as well as a freshly brewed cup of coffee at the end of each long working day. However, in order to get that taste of perfection, you cannot simply consume any coffee, you need the best coffee beans.
So how do you get the best coffee beans for that perfect cup of coffee? Having the best coffee maker is not enough, you must also have the best coffee seeds and to achieve that ideal result, it really depends on how the product is being cultivated.
Yes, you may be surprise but you need good quality soil and great climate in order to grow the best coffee bean. So in that case, which is the most ideal country to grow that perfect coffee seeds then? If you have Brazil in mind, you are correct because it produces the best coffee seeds you can find anywhere but Brazil is not where coffee beans originated from.
You can find coffee seeds cultivated in many other countries besides Brazil but to get the best tasting coffee, you are most likely to buy from Brazil, Columbia, Hawaii, Mexico and Indonesia as these are the countries known to produce the best coffee beans. If you have ever tried the coffee produced by these countries, you probably would never settle for anything else!
Why are these countries so successful in producing the best seeds? Apart from having good quality soil and a great climate, having a suitable altitude is also vital to producing the best results. Brazil is a tropical country, full of sunshine and rain, thus it undoubtedly produces the best and most coffee seeds.
As altitude is important to growing good quality seeds, Columbia should be gaining top spot in best beans produced but unfortunately the country's poor economy is holding it back. Without the necessary infrastructure, it is almost impossible to transport the products down from the mountain top to be exported out of the country.
As for Hawaiian coffee, you are probably right if you have voted for their coffee to be one of the best because they have a conducive environment for production. With large amount of rainfall, hot sun and rich, fertile volcanic ash, you cannot help but get the best products. However, they only produce in small quantities.
Indonesia is another conducive environment for growing coffee seeds because of their humid and improving technologies. As such, they are able to cultivate coffee beans even in remote areas such as Sulawesi and Java.
Ultimately, the key reasons why a country is able to produce the best coffee beans is a result of the environment. A lot of hard work is being put into cultivating these seeds. Now I believe we have a better idea how to choose the ideal seeds when we want to have a freshly brewed cup of coffee at the end of a long working day.
