Gourmet Coffee Facts

I said I’d be back so here I am!  I had a couple thoughts to share with you about coffee in general.  Here are some interesting, and lesser known facts about coffee.

·         Coffee is the second largest traded commodity in the world.  The first is oil.

·         The best coffee beans are Arabica beans.  They come mainly from Central and South America, Indonesia, Africa and Ethiopia.  They are grown in high altitudes from 4,000-6,000 feet.

·         The beans are green before roasting, and range from light brown to dark brown after roasting, depending on the roast desired.

Not much but it’s a start for ya’ll.  I gotta go and get some stuff done.  Down here in Texas, we just say git lol
