Robusta Coffee refers to coffee that has been brewed using robusta coffee beans instead of arabica beans, which are the most common beans used to make coffee.

Robusta coffee beans have on average 83% more caffeine than arabica beans, so making coffee with these beans will produce a cup of coffee with 83% more caffeine.

According to CoffeeChemistry.com a robusta bean is 2.2% caffeine, while an arabica bean is 1.2% caffeine.

There are many factors that can influence the exact caffeine content of robusta coffee including: growing conditions, bean quality, and brewing method.

  2. Brewed: 198 mg/ 8 fl oz

Why Isn't Robusta Coffee More Popular?

Robusta has less sugar and fats, making it less palatable. The market demand has been much lower than arabica.

However Robusta coffee has become more popular due to an extensive amount of highly-caffeinated coffees (a blend of robusta and arabica). These coffees have extremely high amounts of caffeine in them.
