We know everyone has a particular way they like their coffee. Because the individual tastes of coffee drinkers around the world can be so different, there’s an unlimited number of coffee products created to cater to those tastes. It all starts with the coffee plant and the coffee beans. Some coffee fans swear by Arabica beans, while others prefer the higher caffeine content of Robusta. But even at the plant level there’s lots of variation and that’s where coffee blends come in – coffee professionals mix coffee beans from different plants to come up with exotic, gourmet and just plain tasty products.
Blends can contain more than just coffee too – flavouring, milk powder, sugar, and many other added ingredients can set one blend apart from another.
