There are two Coffea (coffee) species that make up nearly all the coffee grown for consumer consumption; these are Coffea Robusta and Coffea Arabica. We have discussed the latter in our last blog, so let's focus on the Robusta coffee bean today.
Robusta species grow at lower altitudes, i.e. sea level until about 300m. It is disease resistant and produces twice the yield per tree than the Arabica coffee tree. Coffee made from Robusta species also contains twice the amount of caffeine than Arabica. Here you have it: twice; twice as awake! :)
Robusta however is seen as the inferior of the two from a coffee taste point of view. Having said this, the quality of the different types of Arabica and Robusta varies widely and it is possible to find Robusta that outperforms Arabica coffee in quality. Nonetheless, Robusta cannot compete with the best Arabica crops.
You will often see Robusta blended with Arabica and, in general a Robusta will produce a more bitter, heavier cup with less brightness and fewer fruit notes. A good Robusta will display chocolate and hazelnut notes. Our Moving Beans House Espresso contains some Robusta coffee beans.

Are you getting tired of working out or keeping yourself from eating foods that are not included in your diet plan? Too tiring, isn't it? Especially when we are surrounded by things that keep us from doing so.
We sometimes think that losing weight is not for us. Most of us just accept the fact that we eat a lot, whether what we're eating is healthy or not, for the reason that we can't have any of those anymore the moment we are dead. That is why we resort to things that put us in danger just to achieve our ideal weight. And I don't think you want to go through that, right? In this article, we will tackle a drink that is pretty popular around the world; and that is coffee.
One of the health benefits of drinking coffee is that it improves your memory for a short time, due to the caffeine in it. It also reduces the risk of having Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Have you noticed students drinking coffee while reviewing? That’s what it’s all about, to remember better the day of the examination!
