For your superautomatic coffee machine choose a pure Arabica coffee.
For your superautomatic coffee machine choose a pure Arabica coffee. A superautomatic coffee machine is a machine that allows you to insert coffee beans to obtain your desired coffee. It will be the machine that will perform automatically all the grinding and extraction operations in order to automatically obtain your desired coffee, being it an espresso, americano or lungo. But which coffee should we choose for these kind of superautomatic coffee machines? We of Caffè del Caravaggio have no doubt: you should always choose a 100% pure Arabica coffee if you want to enjoy flovours that can range from floral to citrus, from chocolaty to spicy. Here are three good reasons to support our theory. You should know that there are mainly from two coffee varieties: Robusta and Arabica. But do you know the difference amongst those two varieties? Here a simple explanation that hopefully will allow you to make a more conscious choice when you select your coffee for your superautomatic coffee machine.
Therefore why choosing a pure Arabica coffee? To begin with, you must know that those two varieties are two completely different products. In fact their DNA is completely different.
Arabica coffee has 44 chromosomes while Robusta has only 22.
This, of course, has repercussions on their organoleptic proprieties, on the areas where the plants grows and, on the flavours and aromas and on the caffeine quantity. Let us see the various aspects in details.
- Where Arabica and Robusta grow? Robusta grows in hill areas at around 200 meters above sea level. It is therefore easier to manage, coffee easier to pick up and unfortunately it also undergoes intensive cultivation where fertilizers, pesticides, etc. are used extensively to maximise production with obvious repercussions on coffee quality and health of the beverage. Arabica plants grows at higher altitudes from 900 meters up to 2000 meters above sea level. It is therefore a more difficult product to manage both from a picking viewpoint but also in terms of intensive cultivation. This is however very beneficial for the consumer because it implies a more precious and healthier product.
- Flavour and aroma. A Robusta coffee has ONE TASTE AND FLAVOUR. It is only BITTER! Arabica on the contrary has two organoleptic proprieties: bitterness, acidity. Their combination, depending on the area of origin of the coffee and the roasting method used, it allows to our coffee to develop millions of flavours. Floral, fruity, citrus like or chocolaty hints.
- Caffeine. Since those two varieties are practically like two different products, it is easier to understand why also their caffeine content is very different. Arabica has HALF CAFFEINE CONTENT COMPARED TO ROBUSTA. That's why when we drink an Arabica coffee we drink a healthier product, and we can also enjoy several coffees a day!
Why Robusta coffee has therefore such a widespread use then? The answer is easy. Because it is cheaper (we are of course considering for comparison only medium and high quality coffee... low quality coffee with defects such as mold, wood, grass, ground or astringent tastes are not even considered) and because it facilitate the extraction of a coffee with some "foam"! Yes, because Robusta makes a coffee foam, it is only a 100% pure Arabica coffee that MAKES THE CREAM.
From tomorrow, in your superautomatic coffee machine you can continue to drink the coffee without knowing what you are drinking or you can start to get some information on what you are drinking. Information ... Yes I almost forgot! To be sure that you are drinking a pure Arabica coffee, the packaging must have written "PURE ARABICA" or "100% PURE ARABICA", because if you find only "Arabica" than surely it will not be a pure Arabica. Furthermore only very few producers will write on the coffee bag the percentage of Arabica and Robusta and even fewer then one that will indicate the origin of the coffee !
That is why for your superautomatic coffee machine you should choose a pure Arabica coffee
