As a rule the Arabica coffee beans provide the majority of gourmet coffees. The Robusta beans are valued for their high yields and resistance to disease and are widely used in commercial blends. The Arabica gourmet coffees possess the finer aroma, flavor and body. Often coffee merchants and commercial distributors will blend their Arabica gourmet coffees with the Robusta beans to drive more profit.
Unfortunately coffee companies use methods of deception to confuse consumers with their gourmet coffees. The word “blend” is often used describe the name of a particular brand or single origin. The problem is that when a Kona Coffee Blend actually only contains 5% of Kona beans and the rest from other origins or worse yet, Robusta beans.
The best gourmet coffees are from the famed coffee growing regions of Central America, Hawaii, Jamaica, Columbia, Africa and Sumatra. The single origin varieties offer unique character and are sometimes blended to create distinct flavors for a roaster. The finest gourmet coffees are found from volcanic regions due to their rich volcanic soil which adds a deep flavorful experience. These area are famous for consistently producing some of the best coffee.
The supermarket is usually a wasteland for some looking for gourmet coffees. They usually provide generic product names and origins that are actually blends that are not defined at a competitive price. Trying to reach the mass market, the supermarket rarely offers high quality, fresh roasts or pure single origin gourmet coffees. The gourmet coffee bean hoppers usually are not fresh and have been exposed to the elements for week deteriorating their flavor.
