What is Coffee?

Coffee is a beverage consumed by millions all over the world that is made from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of the Coffee plant. There are several species of the Coffea plant, but the most commonly cultivated and used for coffee production are Coffea Arabica and Coffea Robusta (about 99% of commercial production worldwide).

What is a coffee tree?

The coffee tree is an evergreen and grows in about 70 countries worldwide that offer suitable climates and altitudes. They grow for about 3-5 years before they flower and produce fruit, also known as coffee cherries.

What are coffee cherries?

Coffee cherries ripen on the branch, and once ripe are harvested. The cherries are then poured into tanks filled with water and then sent through pulpers to remove the outer layers of the fruit. The mucilage-covered beans are separated into tanks, organised and then pumped onto drying beds to dry for 7-12 days. After the beans have dried, workers sort through the beans by hand and bag them for export and roasters.

Roasting green coffee beans develops their flavour and aroma. The flavour and aroma of the same beans can vary depending on the roaster used as well as the operator and experience of that operator. Once roasted, the beans are ground, and hot water is then passed through the grounds to extract the soluble compounds, creating the beverage we know as coffee. Coffee contains caffeine, a natural stimulant that can help improve alertness and reduce fatigue. 

The flavour of coffee can vary depending on factors such as the type of coffee bean, the roast level, and the brewing method. People around the world enjoy coffee in various forms, including espresso, cappuccino, latte, and more. Additionally, coffee has become a significant aspect of social and cultural rituals in many societies.
