100% Arabica Beans from Brazil & Indonesia
Arabica beans are naturally sweet with a low and mellow acidity level. The Velvet Espresso is made up of a blend of Indonesian and Brazilian coffee beans, both very well suited for darker roasts.
Are Arabica Beans the Best?
It is down to personal preference, but here are a few reasons why Arabica beans are generally favoured over Robusta:
- Robusta beans usually have a neutral or slightly harsh taste, whereas Arabica can have a huge variety of flavours with different aromas and notes.
- Robusta contains more caffeine, which for some people is a good thing. However, caffeine has a bitter taste which slightly affects the taste of the beans.
- Arabica has a higher sugar content which is another reason it is favoured for flavour.
- Around 75% of the worlds production is Arabica, with the rest being Robusta, which clearly shows which one is most popular.
