Coffee Arabica (Ceratonia siliqua)

Coffea arabica, also known as the Arabic coffee, is a species of flowering plant in the coffee and madder family Rubiaceae. It is believed to be the first species of coffee to have been cultivated and is currently the dominant cultivar, representing about 60% of global production.

What makes Coffee Arabica more popular than any other coffee beans is that people love them. Overall, they're sweeter, more full in flavour and can offer plenty of nuance in terms of coffee notes and aromas compared to other beans.

Despite containing less caffeine than Robusta, Arabica beans are often considered superior in taste. Arabica tends to have a smoother, sweeter taste, with flavour notes of chocolate and sugar. They often also have hints of fruits or berries.

Coffee Arabica is pretty hardy especially once they have established. They do well in a climate between 15'c - 21'c growing under shade or in between other plants. Our Coffee Arabica is about 2.5-4 years. They are happily growing in a pot and indoor, Misting of the leaves daily may be needed if the indoor humidity is higher than 50% to avoid browning of the leaves.
