About the bean

When we taste tested our Indian Robusta Parchment Kaapi Royale SC17, it took us back to the basics of why we like coffee so much: the caffeine! Robustas typically contain twice the caffeine (and antioxidants) of arabica beans and the more we sipped of this one, the more we liked it. Caffeine is great!

Our robusta Kaapi Royale is prepared from the re-sorting of washed Robusta Parchment AB. The result is a screen 17 bean without defects. Kaapi Royale produces a more uniform roast than Parchment AB and softens and mellows with age.

High-quality washed robustas like this one are great in espresso blends and are often used to fortify milk-based espresso drinks and extend, in particular, Italian-style blends. Robusta beans also help to maintain an ample crema and Kaapi Royale is known for its special oomph in this regard.

Roasting Recommendation:
