Coffee, as often happens with everything of value, is the result of a number of different components. The varieties of plants from which coffee is attained are many. Among these, two are of particular importance: Arabica and Robusta. The combination of these two varieties were spread over space and time in order to meet the sensory needs of an excellent mix.
Arabica: it exhibits a form of grain that is ovoid and slightly elongated. It grows at rather high altitudes from 600 to 2,200 meters. It imparts a strong, persistent and delicate aroma with a balance between sweet and bitter with a good density. Its caffeine content range is from 0.9 to 1%, 7%.
Robusta: it exhibits a rounded shape grain. This species grows in the plains at a maximum altitude of 800 meters. At first, it imparts a strong aroma but does not persist on the palate. Robusta is characterized by its low acidity and intensely bitter mark with a great density. It has a high caffeine content ranging from 1, 8% to 4.5%.
