What is the difference between the different types of coffee?

Jul 17, 12:15PM EDT0

Coffee comes in many different varieties based on origin around the globe.

As for type, the two main types are Robusta and Arabica.

Robusta has a MUCH higher caffeine content and a less pleasant taste. Most stores and coffee shops do not sell a 100% Robusta bean - sometimes you’ll find them in an espresso blend.

Arabica is the more commonly consumed bean. This is the tasty one. They grow in several different countries in a specific latitude range. Each country and origin yields a different flavor… hence the near endless answer to your question if you’re referring to all of the different flavor profiles of coffee.

Coffee is like wine, and even 100ft in altitude can affect the flavor of a roast.

What is the best type of coffee?

Jul 17, 11:43AM EDT0

You should try to get fresh, whole-bean coffee.  Some grocery stores stock coffee from local roasters (Whole Foods is an example), and these coffees are generally fresher than their national counterparts.  Your whole-bean coffee will taste the best when it is consumed between 2 days to a week or so after it is roasted.  Ground coffee goes stale much sooner and is not really worth buying, in my opinion, unless you're in a grinderless fix.

CappuccinoTraditionally prepared with 1/3 part espresso, 1/3 part steamed milk and 1/3 part foam in a small cappuccino cup which are typically 4-6 oz. in capacity. Cappuccino can be garnished with a light sprinkle of ground chocolate, cocoa powder, cinnamon, or nutmeg if desired.
