Coffee Bean Sales, a list of all coffee you can try and buy from all around the globe.
Coffee trees require a very specific climate to grow and thrive.
Coffee trees grow in the ‘bean belt’ which is a horizontal strip across the globe roughly between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn or the latitudes of 25° north to about 30° south. Latitude is an angle which ranges from 0° at the Equator to 90° north or south at the poles. The Tropic of Cancer is the northern most place on the planet that the sun can be directly overhead and the Topic of Capricorn is the southern most place on the planet where the sun can be directly overhead, by definition it’s hot in the tropics!
Unless you live in the tropics your beans have had to travel to get to you. Arabica bean also require high altitudes and rich soil and the heartier Robusta bean prefers a higher temperature and can thrive on lower ground.
Almost all coffee comes from one of the countries located in the Bean Belt. These include:
1. Hawaii (US)

5. Dominican Republic
6. Puerto Rico (US)
12. El Salvador
