Where Does Coffee Come From?

Like any other form of cultivation, coffee trees have a set of special requirement in its growing environment in order to thrive. Coffee trees grow its best beans at high altitudes in tropical climate where there is rich soil. A coffee plant prefers rich soil and mild temperatures, with lots of rain and shaded sun. It grows best in a band around the middle of the world, bounded by the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer, known as the Bean Belt. Soil, climate and altitude affect the flavour of the beans. These conditions can be found around the world along the Equatorial zone, between latitudes 25 degree North and 30 degree South.
