Below you will find five delicious coffee recipes. But first, we’ll take a closer look at the different coffee beans you can use to make these mouth-watering recipes and how different coffee beans draw your coffee.
As you probably already know, coffee is made from (ground) coffee beans. But did you also know that there are different types of coffee beans that determine the taste of your coffee?
The best-known distinction made between coffee beans is the distinction between arabica beans and robusta beans.
Arabica beans have a mild flavor and are low in caffeine;
Robusta beans provide a spicy taste and are high in caffeine.
Roodmerk – 70% arabica beans, 30% robusta beans;
Silver mark – 80% arabica beans, 20% robusta beans;
Gold mark – 100% Arabica beans.
