There are more than 90 species of plants belonging to the genus of coffee (Coffea). There are two main commercially used types of coffee trees and, accordingly, grains obtained from the fruits of these trees: Coffea arabica L. - Arabica and Coffea canephora Pierre ex Froehn. , or Robusta, sometimes called Congolese coffee. According to different estimates, these two types account for up to 98% of the coffee produced. This volume is divided in the ratio of 70% - Arabica, 30% - Robusta. The remaining types of coffee account for only 2% of world production.
The most common type of coffee, Arabica , grows at an altitude of 900 to 2000 meters above sea level. Grains, as a rule, have an oblong shape, a smooth surface, a slightly curved “S” -shaped line, in which usually unburned particles of a coffee berry remain after light roasting.
Robusta is a fast-growing and more resistant to pests than arabica, and grows from about 0 to 600 m above sea level, primarily in tropical regions of Africa, India and Indonesia. Grains have a rounded shape, color - from light brown to grayish-green. Robusta is usually considered less refined coffee in terms of aroma. At the same time, it contains more caffeine, and is also often used in espresso blends, which allows for better coffee crema and reduces the cost of the blend.
