    Commercial Coffee Growing DOES happen in the 48 contiguous states! Read... Yes indeed, commercial coffee is grown in Habersham, Georgia,USA just an hour north of Atlanta's I-285 on five acres of oak covered mountain land. The coffee grove is about 3-4 feet tall, is grown under the shade of oak trees 7&1/2 months of the year, and in winter in a special greenhouse, made specifically for coffee growing (sunlight, water, humidity, PH, wind, etc.) You can order our coffee from Copan, Honduras (which we package as Yonah Coffee here in the Georgia mountains), and when our Georgia grown coffee matures in 24 months, our own Georgia grown coffee will be available! First Georgia vineyards, now coffee! ~ Java Bear, President (Candelario & Richard)

    Hi, I am in Austalia, We grow great coffee and the market and variety is huge. I buy my coffee from Global Organic Coffee, they have a good range and their coffee tastes exceptional to any by far. Good Organics are taking over the world because of their simple goodness.

    Red face Yes...commercial does INDEED grow in North America...in North Georgia's Blued Ridge!

    Arabica coffee grows happily in the Blue Ridge Mountain of North Georgia on 4 pastoral, oak covered acres.
    Our grove was begun in 2010, from Honduran coffee seed (parchment) and this summer put on white coffee flowers for the first time. In 7-9 months (Spring 2015) our plants will be covered with red coffee cherries. Now, tiny green coffee beans can be found up and down the individual stems. You can read more about Yonah Coffee (named for Mt. Yonah in nearby Helen, Georgia) at Yonah Coffee on the web.


    There is also a coffee farm in California called "Organic Farms". They have about 700 plants and have been marginal in commercial production due to hot weather.

    So, get readying for Georgia Java next spring, 2015.

    hi RDSstafford,
    i just checked the yonah coffee website, along with some articles that got published in few papers.
    couple of things that I can not understand.

    The grove of plants is thriving at 1,630 feet altitude, the ideal elevation for the best tasting coffee in the world. Plans are for a total of 1,000 bean producing plants by November 2014. The temperature of the growing room is kept between 60-80 degrees

    as far as I know, good arabica coffee grows between 4500 to 5300 feet above sea level. but the website says that "1630 feet is ideal elevation for the best tasting coffee in the world" Quite a Statement !!! also temperatures ranging from 45 to 75F. Higher altitude and cold temp are needed for the beans grow slowly and develop fully, and densely. I just can not imagine growing coffee plants in that low altitude (similar altitude as Vietnam & Brazil Robusta coffee) and still be able to grow densely with maintaining all the full cupping profiles.

    Also, i can see that the website is selling 12oz at $15.00 which is pretty steep pricing (of course, unless the beans are really specialty beans).
    I just would like to get some feed backs from forum members whether coffee plants can be grown "as specialty high quality arabica beans" in that low altitude with high temp.
    thanks

    Alex and Coffee Forum Participants,

    Thanks for the questions. Hope I can provide adequate answers.
    When coffee is purchased at our website (Yonah Coffee) the purchaser does not pay any shipping. Shipping is included in the price per unit as shown. As coffee sellers and growers, we have never charged shipping, and we normally end up loosing a small amount of profit as we always ship US Priority 2 Day Delivery. The minimum cost for our cans, boxing and bubble wrap is a $6.75 postal charge that comes off our $15 price. It is available in North Georgia at a number of retailers, there the cost is lower by about $5 per unit.

    Yonah Coffee of Georgia is an experiment in growing coffee on the mainland US. As you may know, most all Hawaiian coffee is a blend of 10% Hawaiian grown coffee and 90% Central American grown coffee. Organic Farms in California has tried open growing (without green houses) for over a decade with limited success in selling to retailers on a wide scale.

    We do not believe that our limited coffee grown in a Georgia will ever cause a negative impact on the economies in Central America or elsewhere. Nor do our suppliers (Copan Coffee of Santa Rosa, Honduras) believe we could never make much difference. In fact, I believe they are impressed with our limited progress.

    As for "best coffee in the world" or "best tasting coffee" in the world, or it's relationship to altitude in which it is grown is well...a matter if taste and many, many other variables. The supposedly best coffee in the world grown at 6000 feet...could be the worst coffee in the world if picked too soon, making it bitter, or roasted in correctly.

    We are a little like the Wright Brothers and aviation. Since the beginning of recorded history humans were told we could not fly. But that was proven wrong. Human surgery was first dismissed as dangerous, anti-religious and inappropriate. Social behaviors once thought immoral are quite acceptable today. But today it has lengthen lives and improved life. In 1989 Georgians were told vineyards would not be commercially successful in North Georgia...however we now have 19 successful wine growing companies within 30 minutes of our coffee grove.

    We are in our 4th year of growing our crop and it has gained attention of the Univision, Telemundo, CNN networks as well as many newspapers, magazines and internet sites. In addition agriculture experts have made trips by the bus loads to check us out.

    Finally, as to the taste of Georgia grown coffee? I suspect when our first full crop appears this coming year...and we process and roast it properly...my guess is you would not be able to tell much difference between our cupping and one from Ethiopia, Columbia or even 10% pretend Hawaiian coffee

    Our cupping awaits to join our great peanuts, peaches, wine and apples here in Georgia. There are lots of great coffees in the world...we plan to be one if the best.

    Richard and Candelario
