Fresca Coffee Beans - The Perfect Combination
Coffee isn’t just a drink; it’s a lifestyle. At Fresca Coffee we firmly believe that if coffee is worth making, it’s worth making well.
Using the best combination of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans and hand roasting them to perfection, ensures Fresca Coffee beans deliver the most aromatic and gorgeous tasting coffee from both our office coffee machines and retail coffee machines.
However, not all coffee beans are the same. For our range of professional coffee machines, a different 80/20 combination blend is required to deliver a dark, rich, and full flavour that will produce that most impeccable coffee drinks every time.
We are launching our own hand roasted range of coffee beans and they will shortly be available to purchase from this website.
Known as one of the most popular and well known types of coffee bean, Arabica beans are the most commonly produced variety and are considered higher quality beans. In fact, over 60% of the coffee beans in the world that are produced are Arabica variety which originated in Ethiopia.
These beans are grown at high altitudes and need to be in an area that has a steady rainfall and plenty of shade.
Perhaps one of the reasons that this is a variety of coffee bean that is seen the world over is because the trees are easy to care for, they are reasonably small and they are easy to prune too. Although they are delicate and can be affected by their environment. Arabica is both full of flavour and aroma, which is why Fresca Coffee love these beans.
The next variety of coffee bean is Robusta, which is the second most produced in the world.
As the name hints, the Robusta bean is both hardy and is also immune to a variety of diseases too.
This type of coffee bean grows best in a hot climate with irregular rainfall and can grow at a number of altitudes too. Compared to Arabica beans, those that grow on the Robusta plant have double the amount of caffeine in them, meaning that they are an excellent choice for a real boost and offer a more harsh flavour.
The beans also have a smooth texture and it is often said that they even have a slight chocolate hint to them, which makes them ideal to have with milk and sugar (perhaps as an iced coffee).
