Arabica is certainly the most popular type of coffee although it contains less caffeine than Robusta. Most coffee lovers choose Arabica (better known as Arabic coffee) solely because of the taste. Arabica coffee beans are more commonly used to make black coffee. Arabic coffee is considered to be the first type of coffee to be grown. Arabica beans have a sweeter and more complex taste if used without additives. In Arab countries and some regions of Greece, coffee is served with green cardamom. Coffee depletes the energy of the kidneys (adrenal glands) from the point of view of Eastern medicine. Primordial energy is thought to be found in the kidneys. Drinking coffee contributes to the reduction of this energy, which affects earlier aging, shortens life expectancy, develops diseases and weakens immunity. In Tibetan medicine, there is the notion of the main protectors (protectors) of various organs. Green cardamom is a protector (spice) for the work of the kidneys and other organs. The property of green cardamom is heat-ability to renew energy during long-term use. That is, green cardamom is a spice that is put in coffee and does not allow a decrease in energy when drinking coffee. This simple recipe helps to avoid many health problems. Put two green cardamom pods (which you have previously crushed in a wooden mortar) or a small spoonful of cardamom powder in a cup with your favorite coffee.One kilogram of cardamom costs about 20 Euros. 100 grams of this spice can last a long time if kept properly.
Robusta coffee has a bitter taste. It is more often used for the preparation of espresso and instant coffee. Robusta has a higher proportion of caffeine.
Robusta and Arabica are the most commonly offered cafes in cafes, shops and restaurants.
