Types of Coffee
Note: above is the Coffee Belt of the world. This is the region where coffees are grown, between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Premium coffees thrive in tropical climates, often mountainous with rich soil.
There are three basic species of coffee cultivated commercially:
1. Arabica - this is the premium coffee of the world, producing the most complex flavors and aromas. They are more costly because they are more susceptible to destruction by disease and insects, and are often grown in difficult to harvest altitudes and locations (see the above summarized regions.)
2. Robusta - a wide variety of species most often sold as the "canned coffees" we well know. It is much cheaper than Arabicas primarily due to its inferior, bitter characteristics (due to excessive caffeine content). Also because it is more plentiful, less susceptible to destruction or frost and it can be harvested simultaneously by machine on flatter lands.
3. Liberica - least heard of, it is grown in Malaysia and West Africa, in low demand because of poor flavor characteristics and small quantities produced.
