Where is Coffee Grown in the US?

Where is Coffee Grown in the US?

At least once a week we get this question. Many people think that coffee is grown in the United States and we ship if from Alabama or Mississippi to our Furnace Hills Coffee roastery in Westminster, MD to roast and then make available to you. Well coffee is grown in the United States, but just in one place. That place is Hawaii. You see, coffee is grown between the 25’s. More directly between 25 degrees south and 25 degrees north. Outside of that band around the world, good coffee cannot be grown. As you can tell from the map below Miami, FL is outside of this coffee growing belt that encircles our planet. 

So do you have a special liking to the coffees from these countries? Do you know about the coffees that come from these countries to make an informed choice? Some of you do others don’t. Our list of single origin coffees are as follows:

  • Bolivian Superior
  • Honduran
  • Aquas de Marco — Brazil
  • Espirito Santo — Costa Rica
  • Ethiopian
  • Sumatran
  • Monsoon Myst — India
  • Colombian

We are considering a virtual tour of the world. We are thinking of offering a coffee travel club that features twelve single origin coffees a year. We would give those who subscribe information on the country and farm the coffee comes from.

What countries would you like to drink coffee from?

What should we title this coffee travel club?
