Types and composition of coffee drinks
Coffee - a drink made from fried seeds (grains) of several plant species belonging to the genus Coffee (Coffea) of the family of Marenovye (Rubiaceae).
Coffee grades are various cultivars and hybrids belonging to the genus Coffee of the Marenov family, obtained as a result of artificial or natural selection of coffee tree plants, mainly Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora (coffea robusta, Congolese coffee).
Seeds (beans, grains) of coffee from different places and from different plantations may have distinctive features such as flavor (the flavor criteria include terms such as "citrus" and "earthy"), caffeine content, density, taste and acidity. These properties depend not only on the variety (cultivar), but also on the environment surrounding coffee trees and cultivation technologies. Thus, the quality and characteristics of coffee products of one kind can vary greatly from region to region - coffee demonstrates clear regional variations. Coffee originating from one region (region, country, plantation) is usually called a single-origin.
Most varieties are hybrids and kidney mutations of natural (naturally occurring) species. The main ones are Bourbon (Bourbon or Burbon) and Typica (Typica).
