What Coffee Beans to Buy?
Let’s start at the beginning, and go over the different types of coffee beans that we can buy in the market.
On the one hand, there is the origin of the coffee beans that you already know can be Robusta or Arabica.
Robusta coffee is less widespread, has a rougher taste (bordering on bitterness) and has almost twice as much caffeine, while Arabica beans are more common and generally more appreciated in the industry. Coffee made from Arabica beans is much richer in nuances and aromas than Robusta, and also has a peculiar acidic tinge. Both species can also be mixed during roasting, in different proportions.

On the other hand, you can buy various types of coffee beans, depending on the roast. In this way, we will find natural coffee, roasted or mixed.
Roasted coffee, practically unknown in the whole world except in the Iberian Peninsula, is the result of roasting natural coffee with a high proportion of sugar.
It is a lower quality coffee than the natural one, and it started to be consumed during the post-war period for purely economic reasons and because of shortages. Today, its consumption responds more to custom and tradition than to any other need. Logically, we recommend consuming and buying natural coffee beans.
Blended coffee, as its name suggests, combines naturally roasted beans and roasted beans.
Finally, we cannot overlook the option of buying green coffee. These are capsules or other products containing green coffee extract (creams, pills) or directly the natural coffee beans, which in recent years have become very popular for their slimming properties and health benefits.
Green coffee is an alternative more linked to the world of nutrition and dietetics, although due to its growing popularity we are forced to mention it in these pages. It is also known as unroasted coffee beans.
If you’re interested in buying unroasted coffee beans and want to learn more about this product, here’s a demonstration video on how to drink green coffee:

The Best Coffee Beans
What’s the best coffee in the world? This is a question that will endure for centuries and will continue to generate debate and controversy for years to come. There is no single answer, because questions of the palate are subjective, but Black Ivory coffee is certainly a candidate that will always opt for this recognition.
For those who do not know it, we will say that it is a Thai coffee of extreme softness and delicacy, which goes through a very complex process of elaboration where the elephants intervene, and with a leading role. And the kilo of Black Ivory is priced at over £897. Surprised? Well, take a look at this promotional video for this exclusive bean coffee:
