ATLANTA, GA, November 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The gourmet specialty coffee dealers, J. Martinez & Company, would like to spend a few moments talking about how and where some of the leading blends came to be. If you are a coffee drinker, chances are you don't give a second thought to the origins of that cup of Joe you consume every morning (or afternoon or night). Given this, you probably are not aware that the vast majority of coffee beans are grown in far-off places that are also popular tourist destination. Few areas in the U.S. and other countries possess the environment needed to cultivate gourmet coffee, which is why most products are imported from Jamaica, Colombia, and Brazil.
Blends from Around the Globe
As you may notice, the bulk of coffee beans are grown in these tropical climates, as the weather here is ideal. Blue mountain coffee, for instance, is one internationally acclaimed brand that is grown in the mountains of Jamaica where the elevation is just right for premium cultivating. So the next time you pour a cup of coffee (the good stuff that is), just know it is probably manufactured thousands of miles away. Interestingly enough, it is the differences in land elevation that give blends their wide-range of flavors.
According to John Martinez, Owner of J. Martinez & Company, "Coffee beans grown in Central America are extremely popular due to the balance that is struck between sweetness and acidity, while drinkers wanting a cup full of flavor and boldness are better suited for blends produced in Ethiopia and its neighboring African countries." Whichever type of coffee drinker you are, J. Martinez is sure to have a bag in stock that will suit your taste preference!
