Coffee beans are really the two seeds of the cherry-like fruit of the coffee bush or tree. When the fruit turns bright red, it is picked by hand and then pulped, dried, sorted, roasted, ground and finally brewed into coffeee. It takes a coffee tree 3 to 4 years
to produce its first fruit.
Coffee is indigenous to Ethiopia where the beans were first consumed around 500 AD.
Small family farmers grow over 50% of the world's coffee.
In one year, a two-cup-a-day drinker of coffee will consume the annual harvest of 18 coffee trees
The most predominant species are Arabica (often grown at higher altitudes), and Robusta (considered lower quality and commonly found at lower altitudes)
In Canada, the most popular Fair Trade Certified coffees are the Arabica varieties in the specialty or gourmet market which is experiencing steady growth.
By linking directly with markets, farmers in Fair Trade cooperatives are able to earn 3 to 5 times more than they would receive by selling their coffee to local middlemen.
