As one of the biggest coffee producers in the world (third), Colombia accounts for 12% of the world’s coffee supply. With thousands of nutrient-dense hills and mountains, this wet climate and high elevation has given Colombia great advantage to not only grow coffee easily but it has enabled them to grow amazing quality coffee. There are more than 600,000 coffee farmers in Colombia and the country’s annual export is around 11-13 million bags of coffee.
It is widely accepted that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, where the first coffee shrub was discovered. Today, more than 12 million locals are involved in coffee cultivation and its production - an integral part of the Ethiopian culture. A common saying in Ethiopian goes “Buna dabo naw” which means “Coffee is our bread”, signifying the significance and importance of coffee in their life.
Brazil is the largest exporter in the world, supplying approximately 60% of the world's coffee - this is due in part to the sheer size of the country. While Brazil is a prolific exporter, it's average elevation for coffee production is only about 1,100 meters. This qualifies most of it as High Grown Coffee (900-1,200 meters), but some crops certainly fall below that threshold.
