Arabica Vs Robusta

When morning rolls around and your alarm clock is blaringyou’re probably not thinking about where your coffee comes from, what it looks like or who makes it—you just want strong coffee ASAP. As soon as that sun rises, you’re likely throwing‘ back cup after cup. But when it comes down to it, there are dozens of different coffee bean variations and maybe, just maybe, if you knew a little more about the beans you’re buying, you could make your morning experience a little more personal. A morning ritual, if you will, that holds the golden hours of your day—THIS is the kind of experience we all deserve. 

When it comes to the cup in your hands, there are two types of beans that really matter if you want a good quality, strong, smooth-tasting cup: robusta and arabica. And if you don’t already know, let me be the first to tell you that the difference between the two is significant, but the importance of the two combined is even more significant. 

There are many different types of coffee available, have you ever wondered what is the difference between Robusta and Arabica coffee? Robusta tastes a bit harsher due to it having less acidity and is most commonly used to make instant coffee, espresso and dark roasts. It also has higher caffeine content per bean. Arabica has a whole range of flavours, from sweet and soft to sharp and tangy. The flavour complexity and balance is typically why Arabica is often deemed superior to Robusta.
