Coffee Beans 101: The Difference Between Arabica and Robusta

Don Pablo Coffee

Hey, coffee fans! Did you know that not all coffee beans are created equal? There are two main varieties of coffee beans: Arabica and Robusta. Let's dive in and learn why Don Pablo Coffee only supplies Arabica coffee.

Arabica beans are widely considered higher quality than Robusta beans due to their unique characteristics and taste profile. Arabica beans are typically grown at higher altitudes and in cooler climates, which results in a slower and longer maturation process. This prolonged growing season allows for the development of complex flavors and aromas, making Arabica beans highly sought after in the coffee industry.

One of the key benefits of Arabica beans over Robusta beans is their lower caffeine content. Arabica beans contain about half the amount of caffeine compared to Robusta beans, making them an excellent choice for coffee lovers who are sensitive to caffeine. The lower caffeine content in Arabica beans also results in a smoother and less bitter taste profile, which is highly desirable among coffee connoisseurs.

At our company, we sell low-acid Arabica coffee that's roasted to order in small batches. Why? Because we believe that Arabica beans offer the best flavor and aroma, and we roast our beans at lower temperatures for a longer time to bake out any trace acidity that remains naturally.

We take pride in our small-batch roasting process because it ensures that each batch of coffee is roasted to perfection. And that means consistently high-quality coffee that our customers love.

So, next time you sip your morning cup of joe, think about the beans that made it possible. And if you're looking for a low-acid Arabica coffee that's roasted to order in small batches, you know where to find us!
