The Most Common Beans Are Usually Robusta And Arabica, Both Don't Really Taste So Good. But Special Exclusive Species Like A Sumatran Can Enhance Your Brew.

Differences Between Species Are Usually

Caffeine Content,Acidity,Boldness,Body.

Or More Bluntly Flavor

After Sorting The Origin Of A Quality Bean

To Determine Quality We Should Scout The Method Of Farming

Degrading Factors Are, Chemical Fertilrzers,Chemical Pesticides,Bad Water,Bad Climate,Hormone Exposure,Poor Pest Control,Bad Air Quality,Poor Soil,GMO

Avoiding These Things Can Contribute To A Good Brew.

So Always Go For A Single Origin,Organic,No Chemical Bean.

Storage Is Also Important, When A Bean Is Improperly Stored It Will Lose Its Favorable Properties.

Exposure To Sunlight,Water,Pests And Also Oxidization Are The Degrading Factors

Freshness Is Also A Factor

If it is freshly picked off a tree, roasted,grinded and brewed properly with respects to the roast profile,grind size and brew method and on the right measurements (Brew Ratio,ETC) And Also Precise Timing (Pull Time,Pre Infusion,Steeping,Extraction Time)
It Will Produce A Great Brew.

Maybe that "Special Exclusive Species Like A Sumatran" is a hint.

I'm guessing "Not Spam."  He's enthusiastic; possibly writing in another language; and, even though he's listed himself as a professional in his bio, pretty new to the whole thing.  

Like the rest of you, I was startled to see "Sumatran" referred to as a species as well, and equally so by a few other of the pearls of wisdom cast before me.  But well regarded coffee experts come up with some -- shall we say -- remarkable insights as well.  No names.  

There is just no damn way to top the Mr. Bean picture.  Bravo, Leonardo!  Bravo bravissimo!

Really I Dont Spam Although it's insane on the capslock. Love the feedback guys.

(I.E = Coffea Arabica And Coffea Robusta Is A Species)

(But In My Slang Species Simply Means Origin , Because In Another Place, They'd Do it Their Way)

Thanks (Sorry For Too Much Caps Though)

Not even sure what your trying to say, guessing you speak another language and the google translate isn't translating it well lol? That pic you can't see anything as it doesn't blow up.
