Arabica beans were the first type of bean that kickstarted the coffee production in Ethopia.
They contain less caffeine while giving off a strong flavour of a smooth and sweet taste. These beans contain flavour notes of chocolate, sugar, and hints of fruits.
According to the International Coffee Organisation, more than 60 percent of world coffee production comes from Arabica cultivators. This was the type of bean that started off the whole coffee story in Ethiopia, and it still grows best in higher elevations.
Glorious in smell, Arabica flowers appear only after a couple of years and produce ellipsoidal fruits, inside which are two flat seeds known as the coffee beans.
