How Coffee is Grown and Processed

Coffee is a rainforest product. We went on a fun coffee expedition to Masumbo, (in Tanzania) where our friends, the Moyers, grow coffee. David showed us all around and explained everything about growing coffee. He even let us eat a coffee cherry! It didn't taste very nice. Inside (in a slimy coat) there were two coffee beans, which we had to spit out! Louisa has made a slide show which will tell you all about coffee and how it is grown and processed.
