Types of Coffee



All coffee varieties can be classified into one of two broad types. These varieties are known as ‘Coffee Robusta’ and ‘Coffee Arabica’. Arabica varieties of coffee are generally considered to be more flavourful. Well-known Arabica coffees include, but are not limited to:

Colombian Milds – these varieties include coffees from Colombia, Kenya, and Tanzania, and are known as washed Arabica

Costa Rican Tarrazu – this variety is found in the highlands outside of San Jos
