An aromatic, grounded coffee blend of robusta and arabica beans.
The coffee blend Aromatico from the Portuguese brand Nicola, is an aromatic, grounded coffee.
It has an elegant medium roast and the intensity of Arabica coffee, which is complemented by the presence of Robusta coffee.
The Arabica beans are probably the oldest coffee species.
The Arabica coffee grows in climatically ideal conditions and is considered to be one of the highest quality coffee varieties worldwide.
The plants are sensitive to high temperatures, so they preferably growing in heights of 900-2000m above the sea level.
The growth is slower due to the lower temperatures and the altitude.
This way the beans have more time to develop an intense aroma until their harvesting.
This certainly contributes to the fact that the Arabica Coffee plant has twice as many chromosomes as the Robusta Coffee plant!
The additional effort involved in cultivation and harvesting is the reason for the higher prices of Arabica beans.
The Arabica beans give coffee a subtle variety of aromas, more acid, less body.
Robusta coffee beans are one of the most popular coffees. As its name implies, Coffea canephora is a "robust" type of coffee plant.
The Robusta Coffee plants can endure higher temperatures at a lower altitude than the Arabica Coffee plants. The Robusta beans are known for their strong body with only a little acid and contain more caffeine than the Arabica.
Robusta is an indispensable part of the Portuguese coffee culture and serves as the basis for the Portuguese coffee blends.
It plays its part in reducing acidity and creating a fascinating crema.
