Arabica Beans have a wide range in taste and smell. They are a more delicate bean produced in tropical regions at a high elevation. They are more expensive due to the hands-on production process.
Almost all Copper Moon Coffee varieties use 100% Arabica Beans.
Robusta Beans have a neutral to harsh taste and an oatmeal-like texture. They grow in low elevations, are heartier for rough handling, and yield higher pounds per acre. They are less expensive due to a more mechanized method of harvesting.
The caffeine levels of Arabica beans are roughly half the level of Robusta beans. Typically, Arabica has less than 1.7% caffeine while Robusta has up to 2.5%. Our top-secret blend of these beans combined with our Strong Roast, gives our Blast Off coffee 1.5x more caffeine than other coffees—creating a smooth yet intensely strong coffee.
