Coffee Crop to Coffee Cup

Coffee is essentially a fruit and coffee beans are the seeds inside the cherries of an evergreen plant that grows between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. White blossoms which smell like jasmine give way to red coffee berries. Inside each coffee berry there are one, two or on rare occasions three coffee beans. A coffee plant can grow to a height of 10 or 12 meters and it takes 3 to 5 years for the plants to begin producing, the yield decreases after approx 20 to 25 years.

The strength of the coffee is a direct result of how much ground coffee used in proportion to the amount of water.
