Coffee is the most important meal of the day. After drinking a cup of coffee, you're ready to face the world and all the challenges that the day can bring for you. You're stimulated with the caffeine and your energy levels zoom. However, all coffee is not created equal. The coffee you get in Africa is different from the one you would be from Asia or America. This is due in part, to the location the beans are grown. Each location has a different soil that produces different flavors. In fact, this accounts for the fact that different coffees from different regions have different characteristics. Therefore, if you're looking for the best coffee, then you need coffee grown in Central America. There the beans are not too bitter or acidic and have smooth flavors, whereas the beans from South America have an even and well-rounded taste with moderate acidity and sweetness. But having just one type of bean doesn't necessarily give you the best flavors. That's why many companies rely on blending their beans. This enhances the quality of coffee and creates a proprietary or signature blend that consumers associate a certain type of coffee to a particular brand or create a unique flavor. So whether you are looking for organic coffee, or just believe that coffee is good for you, these South American coffee blends will be the best part of your morning.
