ETHIOPIA
Being the birthplace of coffee there is a number of great coffee producing regions here. As a whole, sweet and fruity characteristics are the common factor and Ethiopian coffee is great to add that final twist in a blend. Ethiopian producers also offer many are great specialty single origin coffees with good stocks.

COLOMBIA
Rich and bold is how I would best describe most Colombian coffees. This is origin is a great place to find the perfect base for a blend. Supply-ability is also why this one has made my list. Stocks are generally good and you can easy substitute a Colombian coffee in a blend if a particular producer or green bean trader is out of stock.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA
This one is close to home and coffee from PNG I find has a distinct fruitiness with also good, balanced body. Another good one to play with in a blend, but quality specialty coffee can be a little hit and miss.

BRAZIL
As the world's biggest coffee producing country there are so many different coffees to explore from this origin and that's what I love about it. Generally good quality across the board, but it is the variety of, process, growing conditions and coffee varietals that make Brazilian coffee a good play ground for me to experiment with.

INDIA
Not many would have this one on their list but exciting things are happening here with the introduction of a quality Robusta grading system. If I need to source a consistent, high quality Robusta with good stocks India is my starting point.
