The aromatic coffee blend of the Organicity network comes from small organic farming. It means that the fertility of the soil is kept and enhanced with natural plant food and correct agronomic practices. There are two main varieties of coffee plants: Arabica and Robusta.
- The beans of Arabica coffee plant are flat and elongated, and contain lower amounts of caffeine than the Robusta ones, which is why they have a delicate flavor and low acidity.
- Robusta coffee beans contain higher levels of caffeine, which accounts for its harsh and bitter flavor. Although this quality is usually considered inferior to Arabica, Robusta coffee beans are valued in espressos because of their rich and deep flavor.

Coffee consists of several biological active compounds, such as caffeine, diterpenes, chlorogenic acids, and melanoidins, which may affect human health. The intake of each compound depends on the variety of coffee species, roasting degree, type of brewing method and serving size. The bioavailability and the distribution of each compound and its metabolites also contribute to coffee mechanisms of action. The health benefits of coffee consumption regarding cardiovascular system and metabolism mostly depend on its antioxidant compounds*.
