The number of people, who can’t live a day without a single shot of coffee, is increasing and piling up every single day that passes by. People drink coffee to boost up their energy and to survive a single and busy day. In this modern world, it is unlikely for one person to be really relaxed because the jobs and school works these days are really very demanding. Having a cup of coffee every once in a while to be perked up or to gain a significant amount of energy is justifiable. However despite the shooting up trend of coffee lovers and drinkers, only a few of them really knows where this great beverage comes from. In this short article, we will tackling about the coffee plant since it is also important that we know where things are coming from especially if we use them almost every single day.
Coffee comes from a fruit of a coffee plant. Already many people know this but only some know about the life of this coffee plant. So let us take our attention to these coffee plants.
Coffee plants grow in a warm climate. They need a less amount of rainfall to survive. According to a study, just about 70 millimetres of rain per year can already cater the ultimate growth of the coffee plant. A coffee plant is really just a small plant. It won’t go beyond the height of ten meters. This means harvesting the coffee fruit is really not very difficult.
Talking about the coffee fruit, the coffee plant usually bears fruit only after five years of having been planted. From then on until about twenty years, the plant will never stop bearing fruit. As the plant grows, it sheds less and less amount of branches. The part of the plant that increases steadily is the fruit and the leaves. These fruits can only be harvested after a month from its day of sprouting. The ripeness of the fruit after one month is already be enough to be able to produce a great cup of coffee that is very decent and delicious!
After reading all of these, we can surely appreciate every cup of coffee that we drink. We can then savour its very great taste and aroma satisfactorily. Coffee is thus a really perfect beverage that we should never take for granted because it has undergone years of growth!
