ARABICA AND ROBUSTA

Arabica and Robusta, the world’s most well-known and widely-sold coffee varieties, have typical characteristics that can be traced even before it’s in your cup.


Arabica coffee grows at 800/15000 meters above sea level. It has a long green-blue bean, with a typical ‘S-shaped’ furrow. In the cup, it proves aromatic, sweet, delicate and sometimes fruity. It is characterized by a low level of caffeine ranging anywhere from 0.8% to 1.5%.

Robusta variety is cultivated at low altitudes from 200 to 600 meters above sea-level. Its yellow-brown bean has a rounded shape and a straight grove. In the cup, it is known for its more distinct flavor and for having greater body and a level of caffeine ranging from 1.7% to 3.5%.

With regards to the Arabica variety, its most important cultivation areas today are Brazil (the world’s top producer), other South American countries including Columbia, Central America and several countries in Eastern Africa. Instead, the Robusta varieties are primarily cultivated in India (whose cherry and parchment are considered the best in the world) and other regions of South-East Asia (Vietnam, Indonesia) and Central Africa.


Distribution of coffee varieties per geographical area

To those who drink coffee to relax or to concentrate, for those whose blood circulates with ‘caffeine’, to those who only drink one cup, but it has to be excellent. To those who are convinced that coffee is good for them and who insist on only serving the best. For those who have always thought that without coffee the flavor of life would be somehow lacking. For those who go crazy for coffee and who’ve never betrayed it with so much as a cappuccino.
