Robusta coffee beans - strong body, low acidity

Which coffee bean wins the title of “most robust”?  If you guessed Robusta, you’re absolutely right!

As the name suggests, Robusta beans are more robust than the other main type of coffee bean, Arabica, and can be grown at low or high altitudes.  Robusta is characterized by a strong note, strong body and very little acidity. It is mainly grown in Vietnam, Brazil and Indonesia. 


Robusta coffee beans give more caffeine than Arabica

Want a high dose of caffeine?  Generally, Robusta coffee beans deliver twice the amount of caffeine compared to Arabica coffee beans. That makes them perfect for high caffeine blends.  They are also used in many  soluble coffee products.

Robusta coffee beans produce a nice crema (a thin layer of foam) and thus are a great addition to many espresso blends.


NESCAFÉ Original and Original 3in1 are made with Robusta

So that you can experience the richness of delicious coffee, for many of our NESCAFÉ blends, we use high quality Robusta beans. Some examples include:  

NESCAFÉ CLASSIC has the unmistakable taste of 100% pure coffee and is made from carefully selected coffee beans picked from the finest plantations, blended and roasted to perfection.

NESCAFÉ 3in1 is a perfectly balanced mix of 100% pure soluble coffee, milk and or creamer and sugar that gives you a cup with great coffee taste and aroma.

We're committed to sourcing all our coffee beans responsibly, so that you can be assured that every cup of NESCAFÉ coffee is a quality product produced with respect to society and the environment.
