Future belongs to Robusta, not to Arabica

There are over 100 coffee species, while the two most popular that are Arabica and Robusta. The Arabica coffee bean has a milder flavour and less caffeine than the other coffee beans out there. Popular types of Arabica coffee are Typica, Caturra, Bourbon, and Blue Mountain.  70 % of coffee consumption is Arabica today. This may change soon due to climate change, which can reduce availability of sensitive Coffea Arabica. 

The Robusta beans contain less oil than the Arabic beans which tend to give them a more acidic and bitter taste, which is why this variety is used in coffee drinks like espresso. The Robusta bean is a less expensive bean than the Arabic bean and is what you will find being used in drinks on supermarket shelves. This is due the higher caffeine content, at least fifty percent more than the Arabica bean.
