Specialty Coffee Producing Countries

Speciality coffee is a higher quality and more complex version of the commodity coffee, and its flavourful beans are produced under specific circumstances in special micro climates. So which countries are the world’s specialty coffee producers, you may ask? And does being a coffee producing country mean that it produces higher quality coffee as well? Well, not necessarily. But here is a list of countries that produce a considerable amount of speciality coffee, along with some interesting information about the characteristics of its coffee.


Ranked the world’s largest coffee producer, Brazil provides mainly Arabica beans using natural and pulped natural processes. Its high quality beans are known for a medium body, low acidity, and nice bitter sweet chocolaty and nutty tastes. The country’s most popular varieties are Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, and Mundo Novo, which are used for high quality espresso blends. Brazil has the most popular and accessible coffees in the world.


Colombian coffee is one of the most recognized worldwide due to its efficient branding. It is grown along three northern Andes mountains in generally small plantations. It is known for its silky taste and a creamy feel due to its mild and balanced body. It also has high acidity, as well as floral and citric flavours.

Costa Rica

Due to its excellent coffee growing conditions, Costa Rica certainly produces some of the best coffees in the world. High grown coffees from the mountains of Costa Rica are typically bright, crisp and clean with good body, fruity aroma and high acidity. Notable coffee growing regions include Tarrazu, Tres Rios, Herediá, and Alajuela.


Ethiopia is the birthplace of the Arabica tree and wild coffee cherries are still harvested by tribes people in the mountains. In Eastern Ethiopia is where you will find the Harrar coffee, which is characterized by winy and blueberry undertones, with good body and acidity, as well as the Eastern Gimbi coffee, which has the winy undertones of Harrar, but can be richer, more balanced, and has a heavier body and longer finish. Southern Ethiopia produces washed coffees with fruity acidity and intense aromas.


Some of the world’s finest specialty coffee is produced in the central Highlands of Guatemala in the areas of Antigua, Coban, and Huehuetenango. High quality Guatemalan coffees are generally produced using the wet-process method, and typically have spicy or chocolaty tastes, with medium body and high acidity.


Although Indonesia is the world’s fourth largest producer of coffee, the majority of the crop is Robusta and the amount of specialty coffee is limited. Nonetheless, the Arabica coffees from this region are considered some of the best in the world and are prized for their richness, full body, long finish, earthy aroma and gentle acidity.


Good Indian coffee is grown in the states of Karnatka, Kerala, and Tamilnadu. It is known for its unique spicy flavours of nutmeg, clove, cardamom, and pepper. India also produces monsoon coffee, which is characterized by its lower acidity and enhanced sweetness, making it similar to Indonesian aged coffees.


Kenya has a good reputation for exporting high quality coffee beans, which is generally wet-processed. A single origin Kenya coffee estate, called Estate Kenya, can cost twice as much as regular high quality Kenyan coffee. Estate Kenya coffees are ranked among the finest coffees in the world and are known for having tremendous body, high winy acidity and black-current aroma.


Known for producing the most expensive coffee in the world, the best Blue Mountain coffee can be rare to find since not many coffee sources offer it due to its price. It is generally produced by wet-processes and is characterized by a nutty and earthy aroma, bright acidity, and a unique beef-bouillon like flavour.


Peru is known for producing a mild coffee with medium acidity that is used mostly for blending. Good Peruvian coffee is generally produced high in the Andes in the Chanchamayo and Urubamba Valleys. Northern Peru has become the world’s primary source for high-quality organically grown coffee since it has become one the largest producers of certified organic coffees.


Coffee in Zimbabwe is grown on medium-sized farms and is roughly comparable to coffee from Kenya, although Zimbabwe coffee typically has slightly less acidity. The highest quality coffee in Zimbabwe is grown in the Chipinga region, providing a balanced body with rich flavour, moderate acidity, and good after-taste.


Often used for dark roasts and blending, the Mexican coffee is considered mostly average and produced in low laying regions. However, you will find specialty and high quality coffees produced in in the mountains near the city of Coatepec, in Vera Cruz, in the state of Oaxaca and near the Guatemalan border. Coffees from Mexico are wet processed and tend to have a light body with nutty and chocolaty flavours.

Culinary America – Regional Cuisines

The United States has long been viewed as a melting pot of many cultures. Nowhere is this diversity more apparent than in the foods we eat. Culinary America reflects the many cultures and histories that comprise this country. Historically, as immigrants arrived in this country, they brought their customs and recipes and combined them with the produce and livestock available in the regions where they settled. The results yielded foods that were distinctly American, while preserving traditions from Europe, Africa, Mexico, and other corners of the world. Culinary America truly encompasses global ingredients and recipes.

Although some homogenization has occurred as people have become increasingly mobile, culinary America is very much the story of many different regional cuisines as opposed to one American cuisine. Because immigrants tended to settle in groups, American cuisine developed as a regionalized tradition and continues that way today. Just how diverse culinary America is becomes apparent when one travels throughout this country. Foods that are common in one region may be difficult to find in another.

In the Deep South, for instance, fried chicken and collard greens are favorites for dinner, followed by peach cobbler or shoofly pie for dessert. Go a little further south into Florida, and the Cuban sandwich and key lime pie will appear on most menus. Coastal towns in the south will probably serve shrimp and grits, fried catfish, and hush puppies. In the Pacific Northwest region, none of these dishes might be available. Instead, one is likely to find sourdough pancakes, crab Louie salad, pan-fried rainbow trout, and huckleberry pie. A sampling of foods from the Southwest shows a heavy influence of Mexican cuisine, and might include enchiladas, guacamole, and tortilla soup. New England is famous for Boston cream pie, clam chowder, and johnnycakes. Philadelphia cheese steak, hoagies, and devil’s food cake are popular in the Mid-Atlantic States.

One of the best ways to experience this country is through the foods of different regions. It is only truly possible to know culinary America by sampling the many cuisines that make up the diverse palette reflected by the different ingredients and recipes across this land. When traveling, skip the large restaurant chains and fast food establishments. Instead, make the effort to eat at local restaurants known for regional cuisine and traditional dishes. Some of these places may be off the beaten path, but it pays to ask the locals where they like to eat. Exploring regional cuisine is the only way to understand and experience culinary America.

Why Iceland Volcano Eyjafjallajokull is a Mouthful to Pronounce

Why is Iceland Volcano so hard to pronounce?

There is an explanation and that is simply a difference in language. The Icelandic language is an Indo-European language that belongs to the North Germanic branch. Although the writing system looks similar to English, it actually uses additional characters such as “æ” and “ö”. These additional characters have their own distinctive pronunciations in the Icelandic language. English speakers would not have learnt how to pronounce these additional characters, so it is natural for them to pronounce many Icelandic words inaccurately. However, the reverse is also true. You will be surprised that many Icelandic speakers find it hard to pronounce English words such as “Pneumonia” or “Leicester Square”. Hence, it might be wise to get a professional translation company to take care of your business translation or interpretation the next time you come across the Icelandic language.

The Actual Pronunciation of Eyjafjallajokull

So coming back to our volcano, how do you actually pronounce it? Many newscasters have given up, and they simply refer to it as “The Volcano”, or “The Iceland Volcano”. Some American news channels went even further to shorten the name, by referring to it as the E-15. The capital E for the name of the volcano, while 15 stands for the 15 letters that come after it. This was not the case for the pronunciation of ‘Ache’, the Indonesian territory that was affected by the massive tsunami in 2005.

So, we contacted our Icelandic interpreter and she has given us a helpful breakdown on the pronunciation. Now, try this “AY-yah-FYET-lah-YOH-koot”. To make it easier to remember, “Eyja” means island, “Fjalla” is mountain, “Jokull” means glacier, and so altogether is Island Mountain Glacier. I am sure you can do better than the CNN or BBC newscasters can.

Although the English language is quite versatile and quick to adopt new foreign words, such as Clique (French origin), Tortilla (Spanish), and Ghetto (Italian), it is still doubtful whether the 1.5 billion English speakers in the world will one day be able to pronounce Eyjafjallajokull fluently. However, if the volcanic eruption goes on for prolong period, the word Eyjafjallajokull is likely to be incorporated into the English dictionary.

Travellers Beware – Another Iceland Volcano Soon To Erupt

The good news is that the United Kingdom has reopened its air space after 6 days since the eruption. However, there are fears that another, bigger volcano nearby will erupt soon. About 25km from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, is the much bigger sub glacial volcano, Katla. If it was to erupt, the massive plumes of ash in the sky will certainly bring the UK flight industry to its knees. Volcano scientists have discovered that the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull (in year 920, 1612, and 1822) has always led to the eruption of the Katla Volcano. These two volcanoes erupt almost every 100 years, and geologists have been concerned about the instability of Katla Volcano since 1999.

At least, from the English speaker’s point of view, if Katla goes bang, the good news is that people will have very little problem in pronouncing that name.

Travel To the Incredible Island: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is prominent for its natural paradise and rich heritage since time immemorial. The spellbinding charm of the island has always bewitched travelers. I remember when I went to this exotic destination for the first time it was the tranquil splendor of the beaches that swept me off my feet. Every beautiful destination on this island, which is naturally made, has some magnetizing effect that attracts the travelers. Therefore, people are often quoted saying that Sri Lanka, the teardrop island is mystically mesmerizing. Even the geographical setting makes it one of the most distinctive islands of the world. The shape of this exotic island is that of a drop. The Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Strait affirms to be the line of severance for Sri Lanka and the Indian subcontinent. This line of separation gives an illusion that Sri Lanka is a drop of land which is falling from India into the Indian Ocean. In my case, this unique setting intrigued me the most and instantly made the decision to visit this glorious island.

The mesmerizing charm of Sri Lanka is beyond verbal description. The article is, therefore, a futile attempt to describe its incredible features. To let you understand its magnificence, I am writing about the places which one should explore during their vacations in Sri Lanka. The best way is to travel to Sri Lanka, uncover its features and discover the island in your own idiosyncratic ways. For those who are a bit hesitant to try it out single handedly, we are here. The morning here brings light and makes it travel through the glorious mountains which then touch the pristine beaches. The beaches drench themselves in the divine light and glistens like an untouched jewel. So start your excursion with the first ray of the sun and explore some wondrous vistas which have the capacity to magnetize one’s soul.

Sri Lanka, apart from the wonders of nature, is famous for the vibrant culture of its cities. Colombo is one such destination which affirms to be the national capital of the island. It is the commercial capital also which makes it the busiest city of the island. You can overlook its vibrant culture if you are a nature lover like me and focus on the breathtaking view of tranquil waters of the Indian Ocean with its fascinating beaches. The next destination is Bentota which is prominent for bestowing luxury holidays in the most tranquil ambiance of the island. The city apart from a significant historical background comprises majestic landscapes. For adventure travelers, Hikkaduwa’s coral reefs off the shore will prove to be the most invigorating. Ratnapura is popular for it eternal waterfalls and Adam’s peak is the landmark of the island with being an oasis of tranquility.
