Coffee drinking is a daily ritual all around the globe; most of us take it for granted and believe that there's plenty of coffee for everyone and it's no big deal. But it is a big deal; it really is. Take a sip of your coffee and look at the 1,095 day journey it took to get to you. Three years and countless hands have helped create this amazing drink, so slow down and appreciate every sip.

Arabica Coffee is grown at high altitudes between 1000 to 2100 meters, only in the Equatorial regions between the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. Coffee plants require an average temperature between 64-72° F and a minimum of 1200-1500 mm annual rainfall, with no longer than three months without rainfall. Oh, that's easy! Once all the conditions are perfect, coffee can be grown.
