Categorizing Coffee

With 21 coffee producing countries and hundreds of regions within these countries, several different kinds of Arabica coffee are available.  Coffees from one country are known as varietals or single origin.  Examples of some single origin coffees are Colombian, Costa Rican, Mexican, and Kenyan.

Coffees might be named by the region where it grows, the grade of the bean, the growing conditions, or even the individual estate where the coffee was grown.

Some examples of this are:  Costa Rican Tarrazu  (region);  Kenya AA (grade of bean); Mexican Altura (altitude of the coffee)
