Harvest Seasons

A coffee variety’s harvest season depends on a host of factors, including longitude, latitude, elevation, humidity, rainfall, temperatures, and seasonal variability. These conditions allow some areas, such as Kenya, Colombia, and Ethiopia to experience two harvest seasons, while others will have only one. As a general rule, Central American coffees are available at the beginning of the year, followed by South American, African, and the Pacific Rim and Islands as the year progresses.
