What is single origins coffee.

Single-origin coffee is coffee grown within a single known geographical origin.  Sometimes this is a single farm, or a specific collection of beans from a single country. The name of the coffee is then usually the place it was grown to whatever degree available. Single origin coffees have uniformity in terms of taste and aromas. Often the farm is part of a community program, providing better labor conditions and health care services.
