Robusta

Robusta is a popular coffee variety widely known for its strong and bold flavor profile. It is one of the two main species of coffee beans, alongside Arabica, and is produced primarily in Africa, Asia, and parts of Brazil. Robusta beans have a higher caffeine content and a more robust taste compared to Arabica beans.

This coffee variety is commonly used in the production of espresso blends and instant coffee due to its ability to hold up well under high temperatures and pressure. Its strong flavor and higher caffeine content also make it ideal for those who prefer a bolder and more caffeinated cup of coffee.

In addition to its taste and caffeine content, Robusta beans are valued for their disease resistance and higher yield compared to Arabica beans. However, they are often considered of slightly lower quality than Arabica beans and can have a more bitter or harsh taste if not properly processed and roasted.
