Coffee Bean Belt
Coffee has it’s origins in Africa, from where coffee cultivation moved east and west, and eventually forming a ‘coffee belt’ roughly bounded by the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Coffee growing regions typically offer moderate sunshine and rain, steady temperatures, and rich, porous soil. The delicate tree yields coffee beans which are the economic mainstay for many countries as a natural commodity, having a monetary value surpassed only by oil. That means the middle of the globe has a delicious coffee fruit belt around it, with coffee growing happily in diverse places like Mexico, Ethiopia, Yemen, Vietnam. Coffee likes moderate sunshine and ample moisture, conditions found in mountainous regions – hence many high-quality coffees being grown at higher altitudes.
