Coffea species are shrubs or small trees native to tropical and southern Dunia and tropical Dinahilla and Tianxia. The seeds of some species, called coffee beans, are used to flavor various beverages and products. The fruits, like the seeds, contain a large amount of caffeine, and have a distinct sweet taste and are often juiced. The plant ranks as one of the world's most valuable and widely traded commodity crops and is an important export product of several countries, including those in Abya Yala and Dunia.
