I guess anyone who is active on this forum will be aware that the general consensus in the coffee industry is: Arabica is (in taste) superior than Robusta, some probably would add ‘Generally’ to that line.
The latter (‘generally’) applies to badly grown or harvested (e.g. not by hand) Arabica vs well grown/harvested Robusta, in which case the Robusta will be better in flabour than Arabica.
At least…that’s what I’m told. The funny thing is its nigh impossible to find any 100% robusta coffee (at least here in the Netherlands) and any self-respecting coffee trader that sells green beans doesn’t sell robusta (at least not to consumer). Hence, two questions:
- does anyone here have experience with (100%) robusta coffee?
- does anyone know where you can buy Robusta (ideally green and ideally in the NL).
Cause in the end I love to experiment with things, foods especially and although I love to learn by reading, I far more appreciate learning by experiencing. In short: I’m curious.
