Coffee Countries

Coffee production is massive industry and has a monetary value that is so high that the only natural commodity with a higher value is oil. This means that for the countries that produce this commodity it becomes a significant component of their economic stability. There are a vast amount of countries from different and diverse regions of the Globe that produce coffee, however they all have one thing in common; their climate.

The ideal climate for coffee production and the climate that typifies all producing countries is humid, with ideal temperatures around 70°F/20°C and regular rainfall. Such climates are typically found in developing countries and as with oil Western countries have historically and indeed continue to exploit developing countries so that the benefit from the monetary value of coffee becomes theirs. Although this is not always the case it is a common Global injustice within trade. At Jurang we care not only about the quality of the coffee but also about the countries that produce it. That is why at Jurang you will only find fairly traded coffee that benefits the local producers, their families, their communities and their countries.

Coffee Producing

Ethiopia

Ethiopia is the home of coffee, it is grown all over the country covering at least 400,000 hectares enabling Ethiopian farmers to produce 200,00 tonnes of coffee every year. The Arabica coffee plant, which was traditionally called 'asminum arabicum laurifolia' actually originated in Ethiopia and is the plant which is considered to produce some of the most delicious coffee beans. There are a number of conditions that contribute to the production of the beautiful beans produced by this plant including: the temperature, the annual rainfall, the altitude and the soil all of which are perfectly balanced resulting in beautiful coffee. Although Arabica is a specific type of plant there are a variety of coffees that are produced from the beans that it yields meaning that there is sure to be a coffee for you from this region whatever your preference. If you like a strong coffee to get you going in the morning then the intensely rich nature of Oromo Limu will not disappoint. However if you would prefer to try one of Ethiopia's milder blends then Oromo Yirgacheffe provides a mild more fruity flavour. Right in the middle of the two is Oromo Harar which is again from Ethiopia and provides an easy drinking cup of coffee of medium strength which is great to enjoy at any time of day.

Indonesia

The coffee produced in Indonesia in 1511 was so good and so easy to grow as a result of the optimal conditions that the Dutch took rule of Indonesia to benefit form the economic return that was achievable through trading such a beautiful coffee. Thankfully the Indonesian people fought back and regained independence in 1945 after a four year war against the Dutch rulers. Like Ethiopia Indonesia has the ideal geography and climate for the growth of coffee beans and the coffee here also comes from the Arabica plant. Indonesian Jurang Organic Sumatra coffee is characterised by a rich spicy flavour, however, the taste and the experience of this coffee will be very different from an Ethiopian coffee as each possesses it's own individual characteristic determined by the way in which it is picked, prepared and processed.
