    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 from ensoluna
