Why do coffees from different coffee shops don’t taste the same? It may be due to varying brewing methods, additives, grind sizes, etc. But one of the main reasons espressos of your local kopitiams differ from each other is the type of coffee bean used.
There are several types of coffee beans out there, but Arabica coffee beans are often viewed as the best. They create luscious, rich, and silky coffees that any coffee aficionado can appreciate. If you wish to brew your own mouth – watering coffee at home, we highly recommend using one of the following Arabica coffee beans:
1. Perk Maverick Blend Coffee Beans
Do you like coffees that taste a bit soft and have a sweet fragrance? Well, then Perk Coffee’s Perk Maverick Blend Coffee Beans would be a great pick! This coffee bean has gotten a lot of positive reviews from people who dislike strong bitter coffees, which means it should suit you well.
The coffee brewed from Perk Maverick is very rich and has a delicate texture. It has a complex and amazing flavour with hints of nuts, lemon, and chocolate. You can get the Perk Maverick Blend Coffee Beans here on Perk Coffee Singapore Official Store. It is certainly a must – try for every coffee lover out there!
2. L’OR Crema Absolu Profond
Available on JDE World Of Coffee Official Store, the L’OR Crema Absolu Profond is known to create full – bodied, deep flavoured coffees. However, the reason it is so critically acclaimed is the velvety crema it creates.
Crema refers to the ‘foam’ often found on top of coffees that was created when air bubbles mixed with coffee grounds during brewing. A thick and pure crema is a sign of a quality cup of joe, and L’OR certainly ticks that criteria.
3. Amazon Fresh Go For The Bold
Let’s face it; Arabica coffee beans are usually quite expensive. For those who still want a quality cup of Arabica coffee without burning a hole in their pocket, you should go for the Amazon Fresh Go For The Bold (available here).
Sure, it may not have the same sophisticated taste that others on this list have. But this whole bean dark roast still creates very decent tasting coffees, and you can buy them at a fraction of the price of most Arabica gourmet blends.
4. Jewel Coffee Brazil Coffee Beans
One of the best Arabica coffee beans you can find in Singapore is the Jewel Coffee Brazil Coffee Beans, available here on Jewel Coffee’s official store. It is of the Yellow Bourbon variety and produces coffees with hints of nectarine, caramel, chocolate, and dried berries. With its well – balanced and intricate flavour, you don’t even need to add sugar or milk to this already magnificent cuppa!
5. Lifeboost Medium Roast
Highly aromatic and freshly roasted, Lifeboost’s Medium Roast is known for having very low acidity. This makes it perfect for those who want to drink coffee but are suffering from digestion or stomach problems. The Lifeboost Medium Roast coffee has a very silky texture and a creamy chocolate flavour. Despite its high price tag, it is still very famous among Singaporeans.
