What’s the Best Type of Coffee for a Beginner?

The first step is getting to know your beans. Typically, there are two types of coffee beans most commonly consumed: Arabica and Robusta.

  • Arabica, otherwise known as the coffee shrub of Arabia, has a sweet and subtle flavor but don’t let it fool you. It’s high in acidity and can be a little much for beginners to drink straight.
  • Robusta coffee beans produce a strong-tasting coffee with nearly double the caffeine Arabica provides. The flavor is grainy and nutty, with notes of peanuts.

What Are The Different Styles of Coffee?

There are several varieties of coffee drinks that people choose, some of which are more popular than others. While the options you will likely encounter may include different types of milk, sweetener, and flavorings, pure coffee has some health benefits, too.

Here are some typical coffee drinks you can try to help you determine your future go-to order:

Espresso

This is coffee in its purest form. Espresso is typically served in a shot glass or a small cup and topped with foam on request.

Latte

When you ask for a latte, you’ll most often be given an espresso blended with steamed milk. This will lessen the drink’s acidity for a smoother cup of coffee.

Cappuccino

Like a latte, espresso is topped with foam made from frothed milk. However, a cappuccino is more coffee-centric.

Americano

Believe it or not, people enjoy diluting their espresso with hot water; when they do, it’s generally considered an Americano. This is a popular drink for those who like to stretch their caffeine consumption.

Iced

This is similar to other blended coffee styles with the exception that it uses ice to chill the drink and comes in many different forms. Some sweeten their iced coffee, and others do not.

Mocha

When you order a mocha, know that you’re essentially getting a latte infused with cocoa powder. So, it’s a chocolate latte, which is good at any time or place.

What is the difference between decaf and regular coffee?

This is the one variety of coffee that is the most underutilized. For most people, decaffeinated coffee isn’t coffee, but we are here to tell you that’s not true. The only difference between decaf and regular coffee is how much of the caffeine was removed during processing.

Now that you know all about coffee… What are you going to try first?
