    Regarding coffee, you omitted the number one growing region. The bulk of the world coffee supply comes from Brazil, Columbia, other South American countries, Central America, and Southern Mexico. Brazil alone is responsible for one-third of the world’s coffee imports.

    Coffee plants thrive only in certain climates and soils; primarily regions with abundant precipitation, stable temperatures in the seventy-degrees F range, and rich, porous soils.

    There are two major types of coffee plants – Arabica and Robusta. Arabica beans are lower in caffeine and produce a smoother coffee with far less bitterness than that from Robusta beans. Robusta beans produce a very intense, full bodied, coffee used primarily for expresso. The Robusta plant produces a heavier crop that is far less resistant to diseases and pests but is considered inferior in flavor to the Arabica variety. Robusta comprises only twenty percent of world coffee production. The world’s largest Robusta coffee exporter is Vietnam.
