Robusta Revival uses Robusta coffee from a single-estate in India, which is the only in the world to have received three “Fine Robusta” certifications by tasting experts.
Most premium coffee on the market uses Arabica beans, traditionally considered to be better quality. However, Robusta beans can create a high-quality coffee if grown in the right conditions and prepared properly.
Robusta coffee is rich, creamy and sweet with a less acidic tone than Arabica beans, has twice the caffeine and has greater levels of protein – helping make for a much richer crema when brewed as an espresso.

Why you should buy it:
Co-founder of Black Sheep Coffee Gabe Shohet said: “We’re proud to be bringing a product to market that has such a strong point of difference and be able to introduce UK retailers, caterers and consumers to an exciting new concept in coffee, a high-grade Robusta bean.
“There are so many people out there who have been drinking coffee for years and have never had the chance to taste a 100% Robusta product. For most of our customers this is a first and I never get tired of watching their smiles as they try a completely new flavour for the first time.”
