Being the oldest coffee species known to man, it is also the most appreciated one. It is a fragile plant that grows and fruits only between 900 and 2000 meters of altitude, hence having high production costs. The coffee drink resulting from its beans, has as principal characteristics a subtle and perfumed aroma, light body, low bitterness and strong acidity. Unlike in many other countries, the Portuguese coffee tradition uses it as a part of the blend with other species. An all Arabica blend is not usual in our coffee culture.
