This hard bean has a fine acidity, full body and vibrant flavors which give it a distinctive character, well balanced and sweetly smooth.
The dry fragrance has berry fruit to it, dark sugar sweetness, and roasted almond. The roast flavors are more nut-based in tonality, between a very mild roasted peanut and hazelnut. And more than anything, the cup is sweet.

Coffees like Kona are the summit of a particular definition of what “good coffee” is: clean, pleasant, mild, a thick body and a good aftertaste. Dry fragrance from this coffee has a muted fruity quality, with a dusting of cocoa powder. It has a sweet grain, maple syrup, dark honey, and chocolate note. You can sense a bit of sweet melted butter and a touch of chamomile tea. The cup has very low acidity, rustic sweetness and oily body.

Heavy in body, balanced and aromatic with a powerful acidity, coffee from Nicaragua makes most coffee tasters easily forget something else.This is a true fruit bomb.
While the dry fragrance has ample sweetness, cane sugar notes, and mild floral and fruit hints, the wet fragrance has a real bloom of floral and fruited (strawberry) sweetness. The sweetness and sense of a “complete” cup are both clear in this coffee.

Colombian Supremo has large beans, consistently good taste, strong body, and sharp acidity, making it a very good “daily” coffee. This is the coffee many now-serious coffee connoisseurs became hooked on before totally abandoning mass-produced store-bought coffee grounds.
In the wet aroma there is the scent of fruit candies, cane sugar, and peaches. It’s a fantastically clean, transparent cup, with refined sweetness. At darker roasts, the grain sweetness is gone, and what lingers is more like refined sugar, an elegant “sipping coffee.” Light apricot fruit flavors persist along with a mild orange accent, and the aftertaste lasts for some time, though it is effervescently light.

Known for more than a hundred years as Brazil’s “Green Gold,” these beans are grown on top of the hills of the region of Sul de Minas. The careful cultivation of Sul de Minas’ seeds and the harvesting of their beans have remained unchanged for generations.
Brazilian coffee can be nutty, sweet, low in acidity, and develop exceptional bittersweet and chocolate roast tastes.
The dry fragrance at medium roasts has a candy peanut scent and a little banana fruit note. At dark roasts, the aromatics are like a soft, darker milk chocolate. There is a touch of smoke in the wet aroma, but basically it has nutty roast tones. The cup flavors are nutty in lighter roasts and more chocolaty in the darker roasts.

Right away, one can notice a caramel and malty sweet note, with just a hint of molasses and fruit, in the dry fragrance. This continues through the wet aroma, and into the cup, where sweetness, mild cherry-like fruit, and a nice velvety body truly appear.

Decaf Brazil is a mild cup, and one of its best uses is for decaf blends (espresso or to add body to darker roast drip-brewed decaf mix).
It has great espresso use to create low-caf or decaf blends with body and depth. If you like a very soft espresso cup, you will enjoy this as a straight decaf espresso. There is a slightly fruity, caramelly sweetness. For espresso, it produces the adequate crema you usually enjoy when savoring a perfect espresso cup.

Boasting a sweet, rich, smooth, full-bodied, fruity flavor, Harrar is by far the most sought-after, mainly for what experts call its “blueberry” flavor. The dry fragrance is heavily fruited, with intense blueberry and apricot jam scents and vanilla sweetness. The wet aroma is sweet like syrup, saturated with raw honey. It has hints of blueberry, passion fruit, red licorice, anise, peach and apricot. The cup is fantastically fruited with a soft, full mouth feel and an ample sweetness.

Uganda’s coffee is intense in character, rustic, heavy in body, and low in acidity.
The dry fragrance has a clean, lemon cookie scent, softly fruited and nicely sweet, a chocolate biscuit quality in the dry grounds, and a plum-like dark fruit in the wet aroma. There’s definitely a wild note in there, something a little woodsy and rustic lurking in the background.

Kenya is the East African powerhouse of the coffee world. A great Kenya has interesting fruit (berry, citrus) flavors, sometimes alternating with spice. Clean and bright, Kenya AA beans have cherished winy flavors.The fragrance has caramel apple and vanilla bean notes, and strongly sweet scents of cinnamon and cane sugar. The cup has ripe, fresh orange juice, bright and sweet, laced with rose like floral flavors. Cinnamon spice emerges in the aftertaste, and a twist of bracing orange peel as well.

Yemeni coffees are one of the most distinct coffees in the world. This is what we call a “wild” or natural cup: earthy, complex and overpowering, to some it may even be strange and bitter. It has cardamom, bitter-sweet, dark-herbs, spiced-chocolate, and fresh ginger notes. Spicy, black-peppery, with a dark berry-like fruited note. The dry fragrance is a bit unusual, and it takes us a minute to adjust, to wrap our minds around these extreme and exotic smells: leather, dried herbs, dusty sweetness, caramel, spice, aromatic sandalwood, and ginseng.

Southwest Asia

What are the most important products in Southwest Asia? Coffee and bananas!
Prior to the mid-seventeenth century, no coffee had ever been grown outside Yemen and Ethiopia.
Yemen’s golden age lasted until about 1750, when Dutch plantations in Indonesia began to lure the traders away from Arabia. And so the city of Mocha, with the name that will forever be emblematic of coffee, gradually slipped back into oblivion, and the desert sands settled once more over its streets and houses.

World Map

Coffee By Region

The most sensitive way to think about the countries that grow coffee is to sort them into the world’s principal coffee-growing regions: Africa, Asia, Central and South America.
Beans taste different depending on where they grow. What determines flavor is the species and variety of coffee tree, the kind of soil it grows in, the climate and altitude of the plantation, the care with which the fruit is picked, and how the beans are processed.
