Robusta vs. Arabica

The two kinds of coffee beans are Arabica and Robusta. They have different tastes and different caffeine content; Arabica beans are more popular around the world. In fact, 70% of coffee drank on earth is Arabica.

Robusta beans grow in different climates and are found largely in Africa and Indonesia. Although most people prefer the taste of Arabica, Robusta has its fans, and Robusta beans have twice as much caffeine as Arabica.

If you had to choose between an Arabica bean and a Robusta bean, it’s always better to choose Arabica.
