Kaffeeanbaugebiete

 

Most coffee growing regions (Arabica and Robusta coffee) can be found in the so-called "coffee belt" - the region of the equator, along the tropical and subtropical zone.

Types of coffee that grow in the highest regions are richer in taste due to the cold, which makes them grow slower and thus develop more flavours. Arabica, which grows at the heights of 600-1200 meters, is for that reason very aromatic. This highland coffee accounts for 70% of world coffee production. The other important coffee sort – Robusta – grows at the heights of 300-800 meters and its taste is very strong and intensive. It makes up 30% of world coffee production.

Coffea Arabica is mostly cultivated in the countries of Latin America, East Africa, India and Papua New Guinea.

Coffea Robusta usually comes from Western Africa, Uganda, Indonesia, Vietnam, but also from Brazil and India.

 

Africa

In Europe we consume mainly coffee from Ethiopia (the botanical home of Arabica coffee), Kenya and Burundi. Arabica coffee from East Africa is known for its mild fruity flavour and the spicy aroma. Kenyan green coffee beans are amongst others ideal for light aromatic coffee roasting.

Asia

The biggest Asian producers of noble coffee are Java and Sumatra. Coffees which are grown on the Indonesian Islands are by nature low acid coffees and are therefore ideal also for coffee-drinkers with a sensitive stomach. Coffee from Indonesia is often used for dark roastings. Its taste is aromatic and mild. Papua New Guinea offers premium highland coffees. Coffee growing regions are located here almost solely between 1300 and 1800 meters.

Central America

Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Honduras and other countries of Central America are mostly known for mild aromatic Arabica coffees. One of the best coffees in the world comes from Costa Rica - Tarrazu. This Arabica sort has a mild balanced taste and a wonderful scent. El Salvador offers low acid coffee which yet tastes very aromatically and smells spicy. 

South America

Coffee growing in South America is mainly limited to the countries located in the north of the continent: Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela and the  Galapagos Islands. Brazil is the no. 1 coffee producer in the world. Brazilian green coffee beans are mostly used for darker coffee roastings and espresso roastings. Other countries of South America cultivate primarily high-quality Arabica beans.
