Geographics of The Coffee Plant





For this information "District" is an area. It could be a Provence, a State, or any other name the country gives the area. It means a general area within the country.

Market names fall into five categories; the country where the coffee was grown, the district where it was grown, the plantation on which it was grown, the type of coffee, and the port it was shipped form.

These names change regularly. Wars, bankruptcies, and deaths all affect who is growing the coffee in what area, or even if the area is stilled called the same.
