Coffee in Hawaii and the other island http://www.thedailymeal.com/guide-worlds-coffee-regions

Coffee in Hawaii and the other island       http://www.thedailymeal.com/guide-worlds-coffee-regions | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
chris tobin's insight:

"Think there's coffee growing in the middle of America? Wrong. America’s only coffee-producing region is found in Hawaii, with growing conditions similar to the other "islands": Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the Galapagos, and even Australia. The most well-known and sought-after coffee from the islands is the Jamaica Blue Mountain variety. The Jamaican Blue Mountain variety is low in acidity, sweet, and silky, making it one of the most popular coffee varieties out there. The Kona variety from Hawaii is just as popular, thanks to a buttery finish, deep aromatics, and medium body."

Life in a Toxic Country

Life in a Toxic Country | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
My wife and I worry about how China’s bad air and food will affect our child.

.....

Every morning, when I roll out of bed, I check an app on my cellphone that tells me the air quality index as measured by the United States Embassy, whose monitoring device is near my home. I want to see whether I need to turn on the purifiers and whether my wife and I can take our daughter outside.

Most days, she ends up housebound. Statistics released Wednesday by the Ministry of Environmental Protection revealed that air quality in Beijing was deemed unsafe for more than 60 percent of the days in the first half of 2013.
