25 Major Species of Coffee
There are about 25 major species of coffea (coffee plant) within the Rubiaceae family, but only two are commercially imported to the coffee industry. They are coffea Arabica and coffea Canephora (commonly known as Robusta) Arabica beans represent 65% of world production, with Robusta representing 35%.
Where Does Coffee Grow?
Coffee can only grow between 25 degrees north and 25 degrees south of the equator ( or between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn) with Arabica growing in soil more than 600m above sea level and Robusta growing from sea level to 600m.
Coffee is Loaded With Nutrients and Antioxidants
Coffee isn't just black water. Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals. Coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants.
