Where do the coffees included in Caffè Ernani blends come from?
Before revealing the answer to the question, we want to take this opportunity to make a brief description of the main coffee producing countries around the world.
The larger coffee plantations extend in the territories between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer. It is no coincidence, given that coffee needs a warm and humid climate. The variety of these territories is huge and the coffee plants grow in various environments, from those with full sun to those shaded by trees, on hills or highlands.
The coffee plant was born in Africa where there is a greater production of robusta, but there is also a large production of washed arabica especially in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Cameroon and Yemen. From Africa it has spread to America, India, Indonesia, China and Australia.
In Central and South America they have the greatest natural arabica producers, Brazil, and the largest washed arabica producer, Colombia, followed by Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and El Salvador in addition to the Caribbean islands.
In Asia, a significant production of both arabica and robusta is concentrated in India and Indonesia. We also mention Vietnam, the largest producer of robusta, although it is not characterized by a significant quality.
In our blends, you can find washed arabica from South and Central America and Africa, semi-washed arabica and robusta from India and dry robusta from Africa. In particular, we use washed Colombian, Mexican and Ethiopian arabica, dry arabica of Brazil, semi-washed arabica and robusta from India and dry robusta from Congo.
In short, just fine coffees for our blends!
