What exactly is coffee? Well, coffee bean is actually a berry that grows on a shrub. These shrubs thrive best in the tropics under temperate climatic conditions. The ideal temperatures under which coffee thrives would be anywhere from 60 to 80 degrees. Lower temperatures will cause damage to the foliage as well as the trunks of the plants, while higher temperature slows the growth. The beans depend greatly on the outer part of the fruit throughout the maturity process. In order to achieve the ideal taste and distinctive aroma, a climate that has a big swing between day and night temperatures must be present to facilitate a slower maturity process.
