Katrina, thanks so much for sharing this! I totally agree that it makes perfect sense to work on specialty robusta... I really would love to try it, now even more than before.

Tanya, I've actually tried it! I had specialty Robusta from a coffee shop in Portland, Oregon in the United States. To be honest, I think was okay, but is certainly better than Robusta I've had at gas stations and grocery stores. It is called Portland Ca Phe and is owned by Vietnamese Americans. As we know, Vietnam exports mostly Robusta coffee, so it makes sense that this coffee shop is working to produce specialty Robusta. As climate change makes it even harder to grow Arabica, I think it makes perfect sense to work on specialty Robusta.

Hi! I have tried coffee from the Whiitestone Farms, Kenya this morning. It was really nice. I have two questions. One about the varieties, is it both SL28 and Ruiru11? Is this coffee 100% Arabica?
Do farmers earn more with specialty coffee beans? How much does the cost of specialty coffee differ from the cost of regular ones?
