What is the best coffee bean?

Are arabica coffee beans similar to robusta coffee beans?
Nope, ! Visually, arabica coffee bean differs by its elongated shape and its comma-shaped groove . Taste-wise, a 100% arabica coffee bean is sweet, complex and tangy at the same time in mouth. It also has the advantage of offering a diversified aromatic palette that can oscillate between gourmet, fruity and even floral notes . In a cup, the arabica stands out for its complexity, which it has acquired thanks to its cultivation at altitude, sometimes up to 2400 m . Her higher caffeine content than robusta should also be taken into consideration. Consume in espresso, in long coffee for light to medium roast coffees.
To the eye, the robusta coffee is recognizable by its round shape and its straight furrow. His strength (even more marked if you go for a strong roast), his bitterness and its woody notes are its main strengths. Harvest at 900 m altitude , it also has the particularity of being less caffeinated than arabica . For aficionados of cream or milk drinks , it will be appropriate, because the mixtures are its specialty.
Pure origin or blend for my coffee beans?
Pure origin or blend, does your heart waver? By choosing a "pure origin", the traceability of our coffee beans is guaranteed , because it will come from a single place, sometimes even from a single geographical region. Conversely, the "blend" is the association of several origins , but it is worth having a more harmonious rendering in the cup .

The benefits of coffee beans
Beyond the financial aspect , favoring the bean to the detriment of other forms of coffee (ground coffee, compatible capsules, etc.), it is the assurance of benefiting from:
- + aromas : A coffee freshly roasted with your coffee grinder and well preserved , it's a coffee that mixes flavors and awakening the taste buds !
- + choices : a wide selection brands, varieties and types of coffee, prices .
- + traceability : From bean to cup, you are informed about each stage of its transformation and this generally gives rise to an exceptional coffee bean.
- more time : We forget the round trips to drop off our capsules at a collection point and its ecological impact is limited. The time will be more dedicated to make an exfoliant with coffee grounds recommended by Anne-Sophie!
Enjoy his drink with freshly roasted coffee beans
Once the selection stage has passed, it will be necessary keep the coffee fresh which is the sine qua non for you to succeed. We advise you to go on a coffee with a clearly mentioned roasting date , coffee will do you good! From there you will have 30 days to taste it no nasty surprises.
A good tasting requires conservation
If you don't already know, a coffee bean loses its organoleptic properties once roasted . So, if you haven't adopted the right reflex yet, keep it in an airtight container with or without air vacuum, the result in cup will be much better. And don't even think about storing it in the fridge , all odors would then be absorbed by the porous side of the coffee. The ideal is that it does not take the air, and that there is mention of a roasting date on the packaging.
A grind adapted to the extraction method
To make a success of your coffee, it is important to pay attention to the grind we use . With an Italian coffee maker, an espresso machine or even a v60, the size of the grind will not be the same. We are also talking about over-extraction or under-extraction as soon as it is unsuitable .
