Coffee is considered to be one of the most popular drinks in the world. It has also become a part of many people’s lives, especially in the corporate world. Due to its goodness, a lot of people depend on it and some have become addicted to it. But, I bet only a few people know the different types of coffee bean used in the coffee we drink every day. So, to help you with that, below are the three types of coffee out of the six thousand types in the world.

Robusta Coffee Beans

The Robusta beans are considered to be a lower grade kind of coffee. It was first discovered in the Democratic Republic of Congo while it was growing naturally in the area. This coffee is used to produce a lower priced coffee blend. However, though Robusta is a lower grade, it is commonly known for its strong flavor that it gives a natural kick in every coffee. The reason for this is because of its high caffeine amount and astringent flavorings.

Arabica Coffee Beans

Arabica, though a bit expensive, covers 60% of the coffee subscriptions production in the whole world. This type of bean is considered as a higher grade than Robusta due to the fact that it can be used on its wholesome form or serve as a base of Robusta coffee when it comes to coffee blends. Since Arabica contains a very delicate flavor, it is commonly used as add-ons on the flavorings of coffee blends. Apart from that, it has various tastes too; depending on which place it has been grown. For example, in the Central and Southern part of America, Arabica are used mostly for breakfast blends due to its moderate aroma and body. This bean is also considered as a gourmet coffee because of its aromatic properties, desirable flavorings and the fact that it contains half the caffeine of Robusta.

Kona Coffee Beans

Kona coffee may seem to be smaller in production in the commercial world but it is very expensive and it costs more than the Arabica beans. This coffee grows in Hawaii and has a very powerful aroma. Because of its aroma and the desirability factor, this coffee is rarely blended with other drink flavorings.

Because the flavor of the coffee varies because of environmental factors, certain coffee bean types and blends are usually named by its geographic location. Now, coffee is not really a bean. In fact, it is a seed of a coffee berry. It is just called as coffee bean because it looks like a bean.
