All coffee beans take on the characteristics of the soil of the region in which they were grown.
Arabica Beans have a wide range in taste and smell. They are a more delicate bean produced in tropical regions at a high elevation. They are more expensive due to the hands-on production process.
Robusta Beans have a neutral to harsh taste and oatmeal-like texture. They grow in low elevations, are heartier for rough handling, and yield higher pounds per acre. They are less expensive due to a more mechanized method of harvesting.
Manatee Coffee uses 100% Arabica Beans in 100% of our coffees.
