Where does coffee grow?

Posted by Erin Plett on

Did you know that all of the worlds coffee is grown in countries close to the equator? Also did you know that these are the poorest countries in the world? The commodity price for coffee is just over USD$1.10 now (by the way, similar to what it was in the 1970s) but specialty coffee is purchased for considerably more than that due to the work the farmers have to put into creating a quality product.
