If you’re an adult, you probably drink coffee every morning before going to work; or most likely any time of the day at least you drink one cup of coffee at home or at a coffee bar. But have you ever wondered how coffee is made? Do you know where coffee come from?
Coffee comes from the coffee beans. Coffee beans are also called coffee seeds. This is where our coffee is sourced from and where the whole process begins. The coffee seeds are also called beans because they really look like beans. These beans are composed of two seeds, and these seeds come from the fruit of the coffee tree called coffee cherries or coffee berries.
The type of coffee beans that are produced worldwide come from the Arabica and Robusta coffee trees. 70 to 80 percent of coffee produced in the world come from the Arabica coffee beans. While 20% of the world production of coffee come from Robusta tree or Robusta Coffee beans. These two varieties of coffee trees and beans are important for many countries in the world for its importance in a country’s economy.
