I live in Istanbul, I love espresso, but most espresso here are 100% Arabica. Robesta coffee is hard to find. What alternative coffee do you recommend to get the right caffeine during the day?

  • option 1: most instant coffee is made from Robusta so if the only requirement is to have high caffeine then that may suit you. option 2: find suppliers of quality coffee in the local market, and if they can not sell the beans direct to you then ask them for details for some of their clients. they may tell you because it is more sales for their product.

  • Have you tried Turkish coffee? In my experience it packs more of a punch than a typical latte (which I know isn't a perfect comparison.)

  • I do not like the taste of Turkish coffee and it does not give me the pleasure I have to drink espresso coffee, here Starbucks also serves 100% Arabica. I also saw all the physical and online markets, only one of which had 40% Robusta
