WHAT IS ORIGIN COFFEE?

alt tag

Origin coffee, as the name suggests, is coffee that is grown in one specific geographic location. Generally, origin coffee is grown on a single farm or estate, which can vary from a few acres to many square miles. However, this may also refer to a collective of farms which all process their coffee at the same location. Years of knowledge and tradition, passed down from one generation to the next at a single farm or estate, go into growing, harvesting and processing of coffee. Most coffee aficionados believe that single origin coffees are the best way to truly experience the flavor characteristics and essence of a specific geographic region.
