When we talk about coffee, it’s mostly Arabica coffee.

Robusta (C. Canephora) is often mixed only in coffee blends.

It’s a pity, because coffee (Coffea) has many more species. Currently 124 species are known. They taste different and also have a different high caffeine content. For our daily enjoyment we cultivate 60% Coffea Arabica and 36% Coffea Canephora. The remaining 4 % are accounted for:
