Coffee basics: The two most popular types of coffee beans are Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora (robusta). Compared to arabica, robusta tends to be bitter and has little flavor, with a telltale “burnt rubber” or “wet cardboard” aroma and flavor. Good quality robustas are used in some espresso blends to provide a better “crema” (foamy head), and to lower the ingredient cost. There’s a bunch more at the Wikipedia.
