Almost all the world’s coffee grows in the “Coffee Belt.” The Coffee Belt circles the earth, falling between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. There are more than 70 coffee-producing countries around the world, and Starbucks buys coffee from more than 30 of them. The cultures, landscapes and growing methods vary by country and all contribute to different coffee flavors.
