I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops Mr. Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and I’ll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup…yeah!

So goes the famous 1940’s song Java Jive, written by Milton Drake and Ben Oakland.

Gourmet Coffees are Made from 100% Arabica Beans

The two most popular types of coffee beans on the market are Arabica and Robusta.

Arabica Coffee Beans – Discovered over a thousand years ago, Arabica coffee beans are mostly hand-picked “gourmet” coffee beans. Arabica coffee beans are considered superior in taste and quality and are characteristically grown at higher altitudes and in cooler climates. Because Arabica coffee plants take much longer to mature, Arabica coffee beans are “sweeter” with much more flavor and aroma plus far less caffeine than its counterpart, the Robusta coffee bean.

Robusta Coffee Beans – Robusta coffee plants can grow in hotter climates and at lower altitudes. They tend to mature quicker and are hardier and less affected by weather or growing conditions than the Arabica bean. Perhaps this is why Robusta coffee beans are more acidic and tart and lack the flavor and aroma of Arabica coffee beans. Robusta coffee beans have a lot more caffeine and are often blended with other coffees or used for instant coffee.
