General Information

Several species of shrub of the genus Coffea produce the berries from which coffee is extracted. The two main cultivated species, Coffea canephora (also known as Coffea robusta) and C. arabica, are native to subtropical Africa and southern Asia.

Coffee is usually propagated by seeds. The traditional method of planting coffee is to put 20 seeds in each hole at the beginning of the rainy season; half are eliminated naturally. A more effective method of growing coffee, used in Brazil, is to raise seedlings in nurseries, which are then planted outside at six to twelve months. Coffee is often intercropped with food crops, such as corn, beans, or rice, during the first few years of cultivation.
