Coffee’s Of The World


    Brazil as the world’s largest coffee producer, supplies a third of the world’s supply. Most coffee from Brazil is of commercial grade, albeit it does produce some good specialty coffees. Coffee in Brazil is grown at altitudes of only 2,000 to 4,000 feet. Brazilian coffee can be nutty, sweet, low-acid, and develop exceptional bittersweet and chocolate roast tastes but usually uncomplicated. Great for Italian style espresso, these coffees can work well unblended.


    Colombia is the third largest coffee producing country but first in quantity of Arabicas grown. Colombian coffee has a deserved reputation of being generally good, but unspectacular. Some really excellent coffees, however, are produced in Colombia, mainly in the southwest. Colombian coffee can be very balanced, with good body, brightness (acidity) and flavour with little aftertase.

Costa Rica

    Costa Rican coffee is beautifully smooth and fragrant. Prized for their high notes, bright citrus or berry-like flavours in the acidity, with distinctful nut-to-chocolate roasty flavours. Grown between 4,100 & 5,400 feet in altitude. High in quality and very well balanced.

Sometimes you find hints of earthiness. Source of good  Robusta coffees.


    Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee where it was discovered approx 1,400 years ago. Ethiopia coffees are of exceptional quality and boasts two different styles. Two of its finest coffees are from the Sidamo region, and Harrar, although their profiles are quite different. The Harrar is dry processed and has an exotic, fruity and complex, while the Sidamo region a washed coffee process which is more delicate and displays floral, citrus tones with a rounded balance.

    Robusta coffee is indigenous to the country, and has been a part of Ugandan life for centuries. The variety of wild Robusta coffee still growing today in Uganda’s rain forests are thought to be some of the rarest examples of naturally occurring coffee trees anywhere in the world. The coffee trees are intercropped with traditional food crops and grown in the shade of banana trees and other shade trees. In these self-sustaining conditions, coffee is left to grow naturally, flowering on average twice a year and show an intense character. 93% of Uganda coffee is cultivated by small native farms. Great Robusta beans.
