Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It can be prepared in variety of ways and each variety is known by different names like espresso, cappuccino, café latte etc. In India, coffee is grown in the southern states of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Monsoon rains in these parts of the country influences the coffee cultivation and is even known as “Indian monsooned coffee”. Coffee powder made in this way does not contain any chicory. It can also be mixed with boiled milk to get light brown coloured coffee.
Roasted Robusta beans produce a strong, full-bodied coffee with a distinctive, earthy flavour, but usually with more bitterness than Arabic. They contain twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans and grows at lower altitudes and slightly more rainfall (2200-3000 mm/yr) with warmer temperatures of 18°-36°C (64-97°F). They are slightly taller and have a height of 4.5-6.5 meters (8.2-21.3 ft). In terms of yield, Robusta produces more coffee per hectare than Arabica and hence the cost of production is much less. It is mostly grown in Vietnam, India, Africa and Brazil.
These top quality polished Robusta beans are collected from Wayanad district of South Indian state of Kerala.
