Types of Coffee Beans
There are two main types of coffee beans: Arabica, which is a high quality variety, and Robusta, which is a mass market variety. The Arabica variety is mainly sold to cafes and coffee shops. It is grown at high altitude and is susceptible to disease and climate change, so its production is not stable. Robusta, on the other hand, can be grown at lower altitudes, making it easier to mass-produce, and is the main ingredient in instant coffee.
