Coffee Varieties

There are two main varieties grown as Sri Lanka coffee, i.e. Arabica and Robusta.

Robusta is dry processed and has an African origin. Arabica is of Ethiopian origin and possesses a high quality flavour and aroma. They fetch a higher price in the market as well. Coffee Exporters in Sri Lanka also grow “Liberica”, a larger bush compared to the other two varieties of which the coffee has a somewhat bitter taste. Although it's not grown in commercial levels, Liberica has a demand in the Middle East countries and Malaysia.

Both Sri Lanka coffee varieties are processed under dry or wet method. Under both of these methods berries are carefully harvested, and dried with the natural goodness of the sunlight to bring out the best taste in the seeds. They are then roasted to various levels to produce the coffee beans. Both Arabica and Robusta have a heightening demand due to their renewed flavours.

Coffee Grades

Coffee pundits around the world are in love with the Sri Lanka coffee, “Arabica”, especially because they are grown in high elevations, smaller farms that are of single origin and processed with utmost care. Coffee also undergoes a sensory analysis or in coffee terms “coffee cupping”. The score must be above 82 points for a certain variety to be a specialty coffee.

Sri Lanka coffee have scored above 86 points due to the berry and nutty flavour notes and the chocolaty undertones. This is strong proof of the authentic and natural supreme quality of Sri Lanka coffee.

Due to the unmatched quality levels the ever-increasing coffee market of the world poses an ideal opportunity for the growers and coffee exporters in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka coffee exports have risen, growing from 84% and reaching almost 355,000 USD in 2019 in revenue. Most small holders are into organic farming and sustainable methods of cultivation which improves their chances of being highlighted at the global market.
