Coffee is the world’s 2nd largest traded commodity, with over 2.25 billion cups of coffee consumed worldwide daily. This popular drink is available to enjoy in both forms, hot and cold. Ask a coffee drinker, how would they feel if they skipped coffee for a day or two. All coffee lovers have a personal preference when it comes to their choice of coffee beverages, be it in the form of lattes, cappuccinos, frappuccinos, macchiatos, or a simple cup of black coffee. Everybody wants to obtain the most delicious and best quality of coffee available. We learn that there are almost100 species of coffee, out of which the most produced and used are Arabica and Robusta. These both differ in terms of origin, production, and taste.
100% Arabica beans are immensely popular and in demand, as they are of higher quality and are the best type of coffee beans. Coffee produced by these beans is regarded as smoother and better-tasting coffee. These beans are grown in higher altitudes with cold climates. It is loved worldwide and is favoured over Robusta coffee because of its sweet undertones. Arabica beans have a very low acidity level and have a chocolatey, fruity, berry-like taste to them with a sweet aftertaste. On the other side, Robusta beans have a more harsh and bitter flavour to them, like very earthy taste with a peanutty aftertaste. Many popular brands prefer to use 100% Arabica coffee beans for coffee production, for their cafes and restaurants.
