Q:

Where do coffee beans come from?

A:

Coffee beans can be found all around the world, but some of the world's best coffee beans can be found in Kenya, Colombia and Brazil. Other places that grow coffee include Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.

Coffee beans are actually grown on a tropical evergreen bush. These are generally found in the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. These bushes can grow up to 30 feet tall, and the fruit, or beans, can take almost a year to fully develop. Because coffee is usually grown in mountainous regions, there is usually not room for machinery, so the beans are picked by hand.

    Can you grind coffee beans in a blender?

    A:

    Grinding coffee beans in the blender is possible, but not recommended. It is not recommended for two basic reasons. First, the granules produced from blender-ground coffee beans will be inconsistent sizes. A consistent grind directly affects the flavor and caffeine extraction. The second reason is that coffee beans will wear down the blades of the blender very quickly.
