Is the second biggest player on the market. Robusta gives a heavier mouthfull and has a body of its own. It has less acid than arabica but more caffeine. A good quality Robusta can certainly be drunk on its own and can
take both milk and sugar without losing its identity. Then again for my personal taste I prefer to use it as a mix in blend coffe.
Liberica is an entirely separate species of coffee, with a very distinctive taste profile.
All though this is such a unique species of coffee with a full flavor on its own it has become hard to find pure liberica beans now a days (we can still get them from the Batangas area).
Actually this species of coffee was almost extinct until
a conservation effort took place in 1995 were some of the last plants were gathered (500 plants) and replanted in some of Philippines coffee growing regions.
Lucky for us coffee lovers its available and can give our coffee blends this most awesome
taste and flavors it add to any blend of coffe.
It accounts for about 7% of world coffee production. Its probably the most unique of the four.
Drunk on its own... Some people love it, like
a good brandy - but then again not all enjoy a good brandy. When this is said it must also be mentioned that excelsa together with liberica is extremely good for mixing in blend-coffee.
Excelsa was recently re-classified as a variety of Liberica.
Eventhough most coffee lovers think of it as its very own variety. Some say it doesn't even taste like coffee; more like "jungle"...
From the word Nestle brand & Cafe. Introduced in 1938 and during WW2 it
became an American stabil.
I do not know a lot about nescafe other than what I can google. I don't really like the taste and do not drink it very offen. "Nescafe"
