Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world, and it's easy to see why. From its energizing effects to its rich, complex flavors, coffee is an indulgence that people all around the world enjoy.

One of the most important factors that contributes to the taste and aroma of coffee is the type of coffee bean used in its creation. In this post, we'll explore the different types of coffee beans and how they can impact the taste of your coffee.

At Milwaukee Coffee Co., we're passionate about providing our customers with the best possible coffee experience. From rich and chocolaty to bright and fruity, there's a coffee bean for every taste preference. So, whether you're a coffee connoisseur or a casual drinker, read on to learn more about the different types of coffee beans.

Arabica Coffee Beans

Arabica coffee beans are the most popular type of coffee bean in the world, accounting for approximately 60% of all coffee production. Arabica coffee beans are known for their delicate flavor and aroma, and they typically have a lower caffeine content than other types of coffee beans. These beans are grown at higher elevations, which contributes to their distinctive flavor profile. They're often described as having a sweet, fruity taste with notes of chocolate and nuts.

At Milwaukee Coffee Co., our roasts feature Arabica coffee beans, which we roast low and slow to bring out their full flavor potential. Our roasting process is designed to preserve the delicate flavor profile of these beans, while still creating a rich, full-bodied coffee that's perfect for any time of day.

Robusta Coffee Beans

Robusta coffee beans are the second most popular type of coffee bean in the world, accounting for approximately 40% of all coffee production. These beans are known for their high caffeine content and bold, earthy flavor profile. They're often used in espresso blends to provide a strong, robust flavor and crema.

Robusta blends are great for those coffee drinkers who want a really strong, bold cup of coffee. 

Liberica & Excelsa Coffee Beans

Liberica and Excelsa coffee beans are lesser-known types of coffee bean, accounting for less than 1% of all coffee production. Liberica beans are known for their unique flavor profile, which is often described as being smoky, woody, and floral. Liberica coffee beans are grown in the Philippines and are prized for their distinct flavor and rarity.

Excelsa coffee beans are often used in coffee blends to add complexity and depth to the flavor profile. Excelsa coffee beans are known for their tart, fruity flavor profile and their high acidity.

Robusta-Arabica Blends

Robusta-Arabica blends are a popular type of coffee that combines the bold, robust flavor of Robusta coffee beans with the delicate, fruity flavor of Arabica coffee beans. These blends are often used in espresso and coffee blends to provide a balanced, full-bodied flavor. 


How to choose the right type of coffee beans for your flavor preferences

When it comes to choosing the right type of coffee bean for your taste preferences, there are a few things to consider. 

First, think about the flavor profile you prefer. If you like a bold, earthy flavor, a Robusta blend may be the right choice for you. If you prefer a delicate, fruity flavor, an Arabica roast may be a better fit. Consider also the caffeine content, as Robusta beans typically have a higher caffeine content than Arabica beans.
