There are countries that are known for the quantity and quality of coffee products, such countries include: Brazil, Costa Rica, Columbia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Honduras, Mexico, and Peru among others. However those countries that produce coffee are not necessarily the best when it comes to brewing coffee.

Located at the equator Colombia experiences several microclimates, which influence the flavors of the coffee in the area.

The coffee in the region is harvested twice in a year rather than once as seen in other coffee growing regions in the world. Maybe the quality of tea in this area can be attributed to the high number of small-scale growers who find it easy to give their undivided attention to the cash crop. It could be one or all of the above reason that makes Colombian tea one of a kind.

Santa Bárbaras’ coffee has flavor that is close to the African coffee.
The rich quality of coffee here can be attributed to the renegade band of quality-focused producers who push the limits of processing and cultivar-specific coffee grown on the islands of Java and Bali. The process (dry processing) used to produce coffee here cannot be matched — even with today’s technology. That is why words like Java are synonymous to coffee. The sweet coffee in this area is defined by pushing boundaries socially and agriculturally to obtain one of the greatest tastes in the world.
