Common name:
Robusta coffee



The Robusta coffee is known as a cheaper, less tasteful coffee  compared to Arabica. That’s because of the higher caffeine levels in the beans, making the species a bit more bitter. However, the yield of the plant lies a bit higher than that of the Arabica species, and this species also contracts less diseases and infections. That’s why this species still contributes 30% to the global coffee production. Robusta coffee is often used as a filter coffee and is sometimes blended with Arabica to create a complete taste experience and a nice layer of foam on the Italian expresso.
Because this plant produces a lot of berries, it’s quite nice to cultivate it as a houseplant.
