Why Do We Say 100% Arabic Coffee?

Demand for cheaper coffee and higher consumption of coffee over last few decades has created an increase of production of a lower cost coffee alternative on the store shelves. If you purchase coffee from the store, the coffee you purchase there is usually a lower quality coffee. The lower quality coffee is how the stores are able to offer inexpensive coffees and still make their profits.

The less costly Robusta coffee is often used in stores for their coffees.

Robusta coffee is used as a filler in coffee and the cost is lower for consumers to purchase these coffees. Here is the main reason Robusta coffee is much cheaper than Arabica coffee. Robusta coffee is easier to grow, produce larger crops that are inexpensive to grow, and the cost is passed on in the selling process.

The differences between Arabica coffee and Robusta coffee.

Robusta coffee can be grown in diverse climates with a much higher yielding crops. Robusta coffee beans produce more coffee. Higher yields means cheaper to grow so it is frequently used in lower quality blends of coffee in stores to keep product costs lower for consumers.

Robusta produces higher caffeine in the beans.

High caffeine content in the Robusta coffee beans results in a slightly bitter taste that some people may find unpleasant. Robusta the coffee is enjoyed by many people globally and suits their tastes which is nothing wrong with that.

The Arabic coffee can not be mass produced.

Pure Arabica coffee is more complicated to grow with lower crop yields as well as longer growing times. These factors are why Arabica coffee is more costly. Altitude and soil quality affects the coffee flavors as well as their growing times. The higher the elevation, the slower the coffee bushes take to produce and ripen the coffee cherries that contain the coffee beans. Exact flavors of Arabica coffee depends on its’ origin, processing methods used, and so much more.

The Arabica coffee beans are sort of like divas and like to take their sweet time developing in to an adult coffee cherry ready for the picking. The results truly shine in a cup of coffee made with these beans.

Arabica coffee beans contain 60% or more lipids than Rubusta coffee beans which give the Arabica coffee a very smooth texture as well as taste. Arabica beans also allow the softer flavors to come through the coffee. Arabica beans contain less caffeine than Rousta coffee beans. Less caffeine means not as jittery after drinking coffee, can enjoy more coffee, and truly savor all of the natural flavors without a bitter taste.

What Is Single Origin Coffee?

Fresh Coffee Beans

Single origin coffee is coffee that is grown in one known geographic area. This geographic area can be an entire country, a region of a country, or one variety of coffee that is planted on a small farm within that specific area.

Another characteristic of single origin coffee is these beans are not mixed with other coffees from other areas to create a blended coffee. The single origin coffee remains pure unadulterated coffee in its’ original form and not mixed with other coffee to create a blend.

The taste distinction of single origin coffee tends to have a unique exotic taste with a flavor that is more bold and robust compared to a blended coffee. Therefore, single origin coffee is of a higher quality coffee.

The growing process of single origin is also a distinction to consider. Single origin coffee is grown within a single known geographical area, some single origin coffees are specifically grown on small farms. Single origin grown coffee developed by geo specific growth retains a unique flavor and character of that location the coffee is grown in.

Rain levels, elevation, growing conditions, maturation of the coffee beans which are actually a fruit all contribute to a very unique single origin coffee.

After harvest, the right processing of the coffee beans, storing, and roasting of the beans help identify the specific area of where the coffee was grown.

All of these specific to a geo location specific growing area gives the special single origin coffee an exclusive advantage as a prized coffee bean for uniqueness as a one of flavor that is difficult to duplicate.
