Robusta vs Arabica: Which Coffee Bean is Better for You and Why?

Arabica versus Robusta Bean Coffee Whole Bean Taste Test

Hi, I’m Brian, and I’m a coffee lover. I drink coffee every day, and I know a lot about it. But do you know what kind of coffee beans you’re drinking? Do you know the difference between Robusta and Arabica? Do you know why Aerial Resupply Coffee roasts Colombian Supremo beans instead of Arabica beans? If not, don’t worry. I’m here to tell you everything you need to know about coffee beans, and why Aerial Resupply Coffee is the best choice for your coffee needs. Let’s get started. 

What is Robusta coffee?

Robusta coffee is made from the beans, or seeds, of the Coffea canephora plant. Robusta beans are a common sight in coffee blends since their dominantly bitter flavors may be less desirable on their own. Robusta beans have nearly double the caffeine of Arabica, as well as more antioxidants.

Some of the characteristics of Robusta coffee are:

  • It has a lower acidity than Arabica coffee, which means it has a more earthy and woody taste.
  • It has a higher level of chlorogenic acids, an antioxidant that regulates glucose levels and lipids in the body.
  • It is more resistant to pests and diseases than Arabica, which makes it easier to grow and cheaper to produce.
  • It is mostly grown in lower altitudes and warmer climates, such as Africa, Asia, and Brazil.

Robusta coffee is often used in espresso blends and french press brews because of its bitterness and intensity. It also produces a thick and creamy crema, which is the layer of foam on top of an espresso shot. However, some people may find Robusta coffee too harsh or unpleasant to drink on its own.

If you’re a caffeine lover, you might want to try MOAB Double Caffeinated Coffee by Aerial Resupply Coffee. This is not your average coffee. This is a powerful, medium-roast blend made from Robusta beans, which contain approximately 50% more caffeine than their Arabica or Colombian counterparts. This means that you’ll get more energy, focus, and alertness from every cup, without sacrificing flavor or quality. MOAB Double Caffeinated Coffee has a smooth and rich taste that will satisfy your taste buds and your caffeine cravings.

What is Arabica coffee?

Arabica coffee is made from the beans, or seeds, of the Coffea arabica plant. The plant’s cultivars make up most of the world’s coffee production. Thought by many to be higher quality than other varieties, thanks to their smooth flavor and lack of bitterness, single-origin coffees—coffees from one region or producer—often feature 100 percent arabica beans. Popular arabica varieties include Typica, Bourbon, Jamaica Blue Country, and Caturra.

Some of the characteristics of Arabica coffee are:

  • It has a higher acidity than Robusta coffee, which means it has a more fruity and floral taste.
  • It has a lower level of caffeine than Robusta coffee, which means it has a milder effect on the nervous system.
  • It is more sensitive to pests and diseases than Robusta, which makes it harder to grow and more expensive to produce.
  • It is mostly grown in higher altitudes and cooler climates, such as Central and South America, Ethiopia, and Kenya.

Arabica coffee is often preferred by coffee connoisseurs and enthusiasts because of its complex and diverse flavors. It can be roasted to different degrees to produce a light, medium, or dark roast. It can also be brewed using different methods, such as pour-over, drip coffee, and cold brew.

Arabica Coffee Beans

Why does Aerial Resupply Coffee roast Colombian Supremo beans?

Aerial Resupply Coffee does not roast Arabica beans because they believe that Colombian Supremo beans are superior in flavor and quality. Colombian Supremo beans are a type of Arabica beans that are grown in Colombia, one of the world’s leading producers of coffee. Colombian Supremo refers to the largest size of beans from Colombia. Supremo is a screen size of 17 or 18 and is slightly larger than the Excelso distinction.

Some of the reasons why Aerial Resupply Coffee roasts Colombian Supremo beans are:

  • They have a rich and balanced flavor profile that combines sweetness, acidity, and body.
  • They have a lower acidity than other Arabica beans, which makes them easier on the stomach and more enjoyable for people who are sensitive to acidic foods.
  • They have a smooth and clean aftertaste that leaves no bitterness or unpleasantness in the mouth.
  • They are versatile and adaptable to different roasting levels and brewing methods. Aerial Resupply Coffee offers three roasts: Lifeline light roast, Fire Watch medium roast, and 15W40 Dark Roast.

If you’re looking for a high-quality coffee that delivers great taste and satisfaction every time, you can’t go wrong with Aerial Resupply Coffee. Their Colombian Supremo beans are carefully selected and roasted to perfection by veteran-owned roasters who know what it takes to make a good cup of joe. Whether you need a morning boost or an afternoon pick-me-up, Aerial Resupply Coffee has you covered.
