Between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn the warm humid climate allows cultivating this magical plant.

The coffee plant requires moist soil and must be sheltered from the wind.
The Arabica quality is grown at a height that varies between 900 and 1200 meters while the Robusta is mainly grown on plains below 500 meters above sea level.

These plants can grow up to 10 meters high, but they are usually pruned to about three meters to facilitate harvesting. During the year, you can have two or three blossoms: the time that passes between a blossom and fruit ripening varies from six to fourteen months.

In the South American area, mainly Arabica is produced, while in Africa, India, Indonesia and Vietnam Robusta prevails.
